Unit4 Cloud Migration

As a leading Unit4 ERP partner, Equinox Consulting understands the significance of the Unit4 transition to the cloud and its potential impact on your business.

What is The Unit4 Transition?

Unit4 is moving its enterprise software solutions to the cloud, bringing greater flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness to businesses. By leveraging cloud technology, Unit4 aims to deliver a seamless and efficient platform for its customers.

After December 31, 2024, Unit4 will no longer support on-premise solutions. Instead, they will fully embrace their robust Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. This shift allows businesses to enjoy increased flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness.

We appreciate that even though this benefits your business, it can cause concern for your business. At Equinox Consulting, we will help to ensure your transition is as seamless as possible.

What is The Cloud?

Don’t worry, we get asked this question more than you think!

The cloud is like a network of remote servers that you can access over the internet. Instead of storing and managing data and applications on your computer or local server, you can store them on these remote servers in the cloud.

This means you can access your data and applications from anywhere with an internet connection, and you don’t have to worry about maintaining your own servers or infrastructure.

The cloud offers benefits like scalability (easy to adjust resources as you need them), flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and easy collaboration and sharing of data.
