  • Excelly award for most creative and unique design

Sliedrecht, The Netherlands, 19 December, 2013, UNIT4, the global leader in software that supports business change, has been awarded the 2013 Excelly Award for Best Designed Annual Report by the Best Dutch Brands Institute (BDBI).

The Excelly awards recognise the best designed annual reports for companies listed on the Amsterdam Euronext Stock Exchange. UNIT4’s 2012 Annual Report was commended for its creative and unique design and its ability to reflect the organisation through design.

Taken from the BDBI website: ‘[UNIT4] has a reputation for designing and developing innovative, agile software solutions for a wide range of services-based sectors. Encouraged by a CFO, Edwin van Leeuwen, who is not afraid to create bold new designs, UNIT4 sees the Annual Report as an opportunity to reflect this innovative culture by taking a highly creative approach. In recent years it has also reflected its strong people-centric culture by involving staff in the annual report – one year by getting children of staff to submit drawings, another year by using photographs of staff pursuing activities outside of work.

The 2012 Annual Report had the theme ‘Outperforming in changing times’, with each UNIT4 country operation asked to nominate its ‘top performers’ from all parts of the business. Their pictures were incorporated into a highly creative design that features a fantasy world of animated characters and quirky scenes. The idea was to create a report which stood out from the crowd, demonstrating UNIT4’s willingness to do things differently and be bold in its design approach.’
