London, October 17, 2022 – Embridge Consulting, a leading boutique digital transformation consultancy, specialising in Enterprise Resource Planning and Business Change, today announced that it has been selected by Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) to implement Unit4 ERP as part of the largest digital transformation project in IRW’s history.
Embridge Consulting will be working with Unit4 to replace IRW’s existing ERP system and improve the efficiency of their day-to-day operations. This transformation is critical in enabling seamless, end-to-end business process automation, standardising data and integration, aligning work functions, increasing data transparency, and improving organisational efficiency and responsiveness.
The global nature of IRW’s work means that they need to operate with multiple currencies and have reporting available at global, national, and regional levels. It also means that any central system needs to be capable of interfacing with other systems and applications, including fundraising CRMs, which will be addressed as part of the project. Embridge will be providing a solution that will empower IRW’s team to leverage automation and improve the user experience, enabling them to focus their efforts on delivering critical humanitarian relief, all wrapped within Embridge’s comprehensive Change Management methodology. This will ensure quick and effective adoption and engagement, as well as a faster return on investment.
As one of the world’s leading humanitarian organisations, Islamic Relief is constantly looking to invest in technology that helps us increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our work. Our digital transformation plans will help us ensure that the generous donations we receive will have even greater impact on the lives of vulnerable people. We’re excited about how Embridge and Unit4 can help us modernise our business operations and better serve the needs of communities around the world.Javed Akh, Finance and Corporate Services Director at Islamic Relief Worldwide.
