Andy Brockhoff, Regional President APAC at Unit4

Unit4, an enterprise cloud apps provider for people-centric firms, announced that Icon Water, a critical infrastructure public firm, has selected Unit4 ERP to modernise its financial functions.

Icon Water provides vital water and wastewater services to the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), employing over 400 people in the region. The firm is responsible for maintaining critical infrastructure, like dams, water and wastewater treatment plants, reservoirs, and mains.

What does the integration mean for Icon Water?

Moving from an outsourced financial services model, Icon Water will deploy Unit4 ERP for Finance Management and Unit4 Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) to deliver a modern, integrated platform. These solutions will provide visibility across business functions, reduce time spent on administrative tasks, optimise resources and drive greater efficiency.

To deliver Icon Water’s Financial Management solution, Unit4 aligned with Kardinya Partners, an implementation partner with expertise in digital transformation for public sector clients.

By selecting Unit4 ERP, Icon Water will benefit from:

  • Consolidation of all financial data and assets into a single user-friendly view
  • Leading global accounting software designed to increase speed, accuracy and efficiency throughout the organisation
  • Deeper financial insights for better short- and long-term decision making
  • Empowering and aligning team members throughout the organisation, supported by leading AI-driven analysis tools

What were the executives’ thoughts on the integration?

Commenting on the partnership, CFO for Icon Water, Joy Yau, said, “We’re focused on continuously improving efficiency and data-based decision making in order to drive greater sustainable value for our customers. By partnering with Unit4 we will be able to simplify our processes and unlock opportunities to optimise the use of our resources into the future.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Icon Water to help them develop a deeper understanding of their business and save time on systems and processes. Our purpose-built solutions and deep industry knowledge of Australia’s public sector organisations mean we can help Icon Water run and scale more successfully,” said Andy Brockhoff, Regional President APAC, Unit4.
