Consistently ranked Canada’s most innovative university, Waterloo is home to advanced research and teaching in science and engineering, health, environment, arts, and social sciences

Scope and Challenges

Outcome and Implications

Ontario’s University of Waterloo is the latest university to acquire Unit4 Business World to handle its financial accounting and reporting needs. Announced today by Unit4 and ERP Connex, the University joins a global list of higher education customers that includes Royal Roads, Robert Morris, Sodertorn and Oxford-Cambridge Universities.

By moving to Business World in the cloud, we are looking forward to improving the user experience, transitioning from paper-based to electronic processes, and improving reporting and analytics.”-said Bruce Campbell, Chief Information Officer at the University of Waterloo. 

"Business World is a highly configurable solution that allows universities to adapt quickly by implementing system changes with agility and simplicity in response to the highly competitive and fast-paced higher education environment.

The simplicity, agility, and speed of the Business World solution is a powerful combination for universities.”-said Scott Kamieneski, Managing Director for North America at Unit4.
