Embridge Consulting and Unit4 partner with concern worldwide to deliver integrated ERP solution

Embridge Consulting and Unit4 partner with concern worldwide to deliver integrated ERP solution

Award-winning boutique digital transformation consultancy, Embridge Consulting, and leading enterprise cloud applications provider, Unit4, have today announced a new project with Concern Worldwide to deliver a best-in-class ERP solution.

Concern Worldwide is an international humanitarian organisation, committed to reducing the suffering of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries. In 2022, Concern impacted 39 million people, including responding to the needs of 65,000 internally displaced people in Ukraine, over 120,000 people who lost livelihoods and homes due to floods in Pakistan, and over one million people struggling to survive a record drought in the Horn of Africa.

Operating in 26 countries and with 4,500 staff and volunteers, the organisation has grown substantially in recent years and wanted to upgrade its finance and aid distribution management systems and were keen to automate and move to the Cloud.

With the complexities of international branches throughout the world presenting issues around training, support and connectivity, Concern enlisted Embridge Consulting and Unit4 based on their track record in supporting similar large-scale projects in the non-profit sector, including extensive work with Islamic Relief.

The joint project will implement Unit4 ERP, providing an intuitive, cost-effective platform to streamline finance, procurement, and warehousing, enabling Concern Worldwide to continue its important humanitarian work. Longer term, the intention is to work with Concern Worldwide so that it can continuously improve its operations, through collaboration, comprehensive training, and support.
