SLIEDRECHT, The Netherlands, March 19, 2012 /CNW/ - UNIT4, the global business software group, today announced a new channel partner recruitment drive to support its indirect sales strategy in Latin America. UNIT4 aims to expand throughout the region building a network of partners that share the commitment to deliver business software with a low cost of ownership that supports ongoing, post-implementation change.
UNIT4 is a leading provider of enterprise software for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC)™. Partners will be able to sell and implement Agresso Business World, UNIT4's flagship Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) suite for services intensive organizations and UNIT4 ekon, a Spanish mid-market ERP solution. Both are already used by customers in the region.
"Latin America is growing rapidly and we want to become the benchmark for change-embracing ERP in Columbia, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, Chile and Argentina," said Juan Carlos Cuevas, director of business development, Latin America. "Becoming a Certified UNIT4 partner offers many benefits including access to our world-class products, differentiated by offering the lowest cost of ownership and unrivalled ease of change on the market, as well as support for sales, marketing, pre-sales, support and training."
The increasing demand for enterprise solutions is driving UNIT4 to expand in Latin America through its partner network. New approaches to ERP have already moved it in favour of the services-centric organization, and flexible systems that change as the business changes without code-level programming and intimidating upgrades can provide these organisations with the independence they need while providing flexible delivery options, be that cloud, on-premise or a combination. UNIT4 is dedicated to finding strong resellers with significant domain experience to meet demand for these solutions.
UNIT4 is a global business software and services company aimed at helping dynamic public sector, and commercial services organizations to embrace change simply, quickly and cost effectively in a market sector it calls 'Businesses Living IN Change' (BLINC)™. The Group incorporates a number of the world's leading change embracing software brands including Agresso Business World, our flagship ERP suite for mid-sized services intensive organizations and Coda, our best-of-class financial management software.
