ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS 4 APRIL 2019
Uniconta founder Erik Damgaard is a Danish software engineer and entrepreneur who made international headlines when he sold his software company, Navision, to Microsoft in 2002 for EUR 1 billion. It became part of Microsoft Dynamics.
After turning his attention to other spheres, he has returned to the area he is most passionate about: building enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, but this time in the cloud, targeting a niche market that has been ignored by the traditional vendors and new cloud players alike.
"What about small businesses with five to 10 user installations? Where do they go?" he asks. "When it comes to ERP software, there's nothing in the cloud for them. There's high-end software and basic bookkeeping software, but nothing in the middle."
Damgaard was in South Africa recently to promote Uniconta and explain the rationale behind its development.
