Press Releases: Uniconta South Africa
The right choice is crucial in today's fast-moving business environment
JOHANNESBURG – Businesses need to adapt quickly as ageing business systems (ERPs) fail to meet today's business demands. To survive, business leaders need to modernise and find more effective ways to run their businesses.
The global ERP market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.45 percent to $49 billion (R749bn) by 2023. Market Research Future says this massive adoption of ERP software is largely due to increased transparency and operational efficiencies expected from organisations.
There is also a high adoption rate for affordable cloud-based deployment models, this is currently driving the growth of ERP software market. Cloud ERP software offers more flexibility to businesses, it is designed to help customers streamline their business processes, accelerate their growth and connect all aspects of their business.
Uniconta is typically a new quick and easy Cloud ERP system for small and medium size businesses, specifically developed to help companies work more efficiently, faster and achieve their business goals easier. Uniconta is designed for businesses that need fast access and security. Uniconta is unique in that it is extremely easy to customise to meet business needs.
Modern Cloud ERP solutions enable management to obtain a complete real-time view of their business anytime, anywhere. These systems can also be easily accessed via mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. This alone provides a huge competitive edge; it enables efficient and smooth functioning of the business.
Many companies are still running costly legacy ERP systems, they urgently need to review the cloud subscription-based services. Cloud ERP requires minimal or no hardware and also no services associated with the
maintenance of these costly systems. ERP is no longer an IT or accounting decision, it's a business decision that affects the entire organisation. All stakeholders need to be part of the decision making process, especially if they want to improve revenue, reduce costs and mitigate risk.
To remain competitive, it is crucial to implement tools that integrate business systems and provide visibility across the full scope of the business. The right tools will ensure increased collaboration and enable smart, fast decision-making.
Cloud ERP software can be a great choice, it can save businesses a huge amount of money. However, business leaders need to ensure the new system is a good fit for all. Very often these decisions are made at senior level and end users are never consulted.
There is no doubt that Cloud ERP is changing the way businesses operate. The only question that needs to be answered, is when the right time is to move to the cloud. While there are many traditional businesses that still have reservations in converting to the cloud and security remains the biggest concern for them, those businesses that adopt the cloud will be streaks ahead of their competitors.

COMPANIES/ 29 JANUARY 2019 / TAMARYN AFRICA
JOHANNESBURG - A new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for small and medium size businesses, Uniconta, has opened its first offices in Cape Town, the company said on Tuesday.
The company said it planned to establish itself in Southern Africa and then move onto other African countries like Kenya and Uganda.
According to the company, the new Cloud ERP solution was precisely developed to help companies work more efficiently, faster and to help them achieve their business goals easier.
Uniconta South Africa CEO Keith Mullan said the product
was developed for the cloud right from the start without any legacy or restrictions from any legacy systems.
"More importantly, it’s a Danish product sold in Rands and on a monthly subscription basis. And that's exactly what makes this enterprise solution so unique. The fundamental differential with Uniconta is speed, ease of use and price. It sets new standards in terms of speed and simplicity and is technologically, functionally and conceptually designed to support small and medium-sized businesses," Mullan said.
Uniconta was established in South Africa to build a healthy partner ecosystem and at the same time also create product awareness.
Claus Klein-Ipsen responsible for international expansion and distributors, said expanding to South Africa is part of their international growth strategy and that it is an important country to get a footprint in.
Uniconta was founded by Software Engineer Erik Damgaard and when developing any software, one of Erik’s key goals is to achieve accessibility and simplicity for the end-user while maintaining the highest level of technological advancement as well as functionality in the business environment.
As such, Uniconta is said to be built on the basis of a system which comprises all the essential tools and core functionalities of an ERP solution within a modern and customisable Microsoft front- and back office environment.
"The combination of such software development skills as well as a commercial understanding of system development and software architecture, make Uniconta a revolutionary new business and ERP solution," said Mullan.
At the company launch in Cape Town, it further announced that it plans to establish itself in Southern Africa and then move onto other African countries like Kenya and Uganda.
The new Cloud ERP solution was specifically developed to help companies work more efficiently, faster and achieve their business goals easier. It was specifically designed for businesses that need fast access, security, and a solution that is extremely easy to customise to their needs.
