Humorous Independence Day Letter for Those Facing Big ERP Tyranny

VICTORIA, British Columbia (June 30, 2011) –


UNIT4 Business Software (, the world’s leading provider of business software for fast changing organizations, is celebrating U.S. Independence Day with a humorous nudge to encourage organizations to free themselves from tyrannical Big ERP providers.

In a mock letter to large ERP providers, UNIT4 writes: “All the antacids and stress balls in the world won’t make me change my mind – I need ERP independence!”

The letter can be forwarded by frustrated users as a laugh, or to others who may be unsatisfied with their ERP software. If the mood strikes, users can also forward the letter directly to their ERP vendor.

The letter links to a video called “The CFO Won’t Like That,” which lampoons some of the typical issues experienced with Big ERP implementations.
