Internship Business Administration / Intelligence

Country: The Netherlands
Office: Sliedrecht
Business area: Management

We are Unit4, a leading provider of enterprise applications empowering people in service organizations. We are in business for people because we are creating smarter, more connected organizations powered by our business software and solutions that allow people to have a positive and bigger impact on everyone who uses our solutions – from students to project managers, volunteers to CFOs. Help us be the best and join us.

Want to make an impact and leave your mark on one of the cornerstones of our organization?

Since January 1st 2017 Unit4 has been split into two divisions: Global Solutions & Domestic Lines of Business.  The Domestic Lines of Business is a portfolio consisting of 8 separate businesses / product groups driving ~€180M of revenues and employing ~1000 people from various countries (NL, BE, ES, PL, HU). To realize synergies between the product lines the decision has been taken to run this part of Unit4 like a portfolio of relatively autonomous businesses.

Given the new division will be run like a portfolio company, with a lot of autonomy for the GMs, there is at management a big need for transparent and automatized business intelligence. The goal is to implement an in-house Business Intelligence application (Unit4 Prevero) to support this. However, before this can happen we need to define which key performance indicators will be most important for management to steer the business. Next there is a need to analyse how to access this data in an automated way. The latter has proven to be difficult driven by a combination of complex infrastructures of legacy back office systems from various legal entities and a partly outsourced process to Poland.
