Supporting the move to Unit4 Cloud: Arribatec supports The Growth Company’s migration
“Moving to Unit4 cloud was the best thing we could have done.”
The Growth Company (GC) is a dynamic organisation in the services sector, known for its commitment to innovation, growth, and client satisfaction. As the company continued to expand, it recognised the necessity of modernising its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. In late 2021, GC initiated a pivotal project aimed at migrating its ERP system to the cloud and turned to Arribatec to manage this integration.
Sally Little, Group Finance Director at The Growth Company, knew that a migration to the cloud was going to be a complicated, multi-faceted process, and with Arribatec’s experience of working with Unit4 ERP, as well as in depth understanding of how GC use their system, Arribatec were the perfect partner for their project.
“Having worked with Arribatec as our technical support helpdesk for several months, it was clear that they could be our trusted partner to guide and support us through this complex project.”
This project was something that GC hadn’t undertaken before, having previously only used on-premise ERP systems. By moving to the cloud they would be able to improve operational efficiency and scalability, as well as migrating all document Archives (Stored externally, on local drives) to inside the database and upgrading from ERP Milestone 6 to Milestone 7.
Arribatec’s implementation consultants, along with Unit4 and The Growth Company’s own internal team, worked over 6 months to deliver, not only the upgrade to Milestone7, but also the production and testing of all the scripts that were used in the new system to ensure that there was no disjointedness between different stages of the project.
The most pivotal stage of the project, however, was migrating all of The Growth Companies systems from on-premise to the Unit4 Cloud.
Kathryn McDonnell, Client Engagement Director at Arribatec said “Working with The Growth Company to support them in the Unit4 Cloud migration was a fantastic project. Having the opportunity to work with a client to support transformation, whilst embracing the challenges of strategic change is a privilege, and testament to the partnership ethos we create at Arribatec UK. Being able to share our transformation experience, challenge each other, whilst in a collaborative, results focused team was what great projects are made of. Really Proud of the achievement then, and going forward.”
Migrating your company from an on-premises infrastructure to the Cloud can bring numerous benefits, including scalability, cost-efficiency, improved performance, and increased flexibility. GC, who needed access to their HR and finance systems all over the UK and throughout their organisation, needed a solution that was as flexible as they are.
Sally is very aware of the positives of moving the Cloud. “Now that we are using Cloud services for Unit4 ERP, we have taken the first of several steps to move our back office systems to a best practice model that gives us flexibility and control we could never have dreamed of before.”
