Millennium Consulting Elite Partner of Unit4

November 3rd, 2020

Millennium Consulting has achieved Elite Partner status from Unit4.

The new Unit4 global partner program launched in June 2020 operates across three levels focused on capabilities, contributions, and customer satisfaction. Elite level partners have achieved the highest level within the Unit4 partner program.  This level is awarded to partners that have consistently demonstrated the ability to meet the highest level of success with Unit4 and our joint customers.

Partner levels are determined through product certification, client references, successful new business sales including SaaS, plus client feedback via Raven Intel which analyses recent Unit4 Financials implementations and associated support. Aspects such as customer satisfaction, team quality and performance, scope and precision in the implementation process are evaluated. Additionally, Unit4 evaluates whether each partner is a specialist in their respective market.

To date, there are only ten organisations with elite status globally (only three of them in the UK) and we are one of only two Unit4 Financials Elite Partners globally.

Malc Coton, Partner Manager UKI at Unit4 congratulated the Millennium team:

“Well done for achieving this in just over 4 months since programme launch, it’s quite an accolade and a badge to wear with pride for sure! It’s a huge milestone for Millennium in the UK and I’m proud to have been your Partner Manager on that journey with you.”

Beata Wright, Global Head of Partner Ecosystems at Unit4, successfully introduced the world class Global Partner Program to give partners the resources to transform the way people work and help their clients deliver an exceptional people experience to their customers. This program was part of the strategic concept of “People Experience”. Connecting and transforming all aspects of the work experience is key to personal inspiration and organisational success was a vision, from the champion of People Experience, Mike Ettling CEO of Unit4.

With Millennium, for 25 years, we have built a reputation for quality, value, and delivery. We provide global finance transformation and data management consulting, solutions, and services across the world’s most demanding industries, with customers in finance, logistics, construction, and manufacturing.
