History of G7

G7 Business Solutions Ltd started life in 2001 with an initial 20 customers and 14 employees, after taking on the Lawson partnership from the Jon Hawkins Partnership. In the same year we also set up the relationship with Unit4.

Since 2001 the company has maintained both the Lawson and the Unit4 partnerships and their associated business streams. There has also been successful diversification into other products such as Space Time Research, Business Objects and V1 (formerly VersionOne).

Over the years several Directors have left the business either to start new challenges or to retire. The most recent board restructure happened in late 2012 leaving Mark and Dominic as the last remaining Directors and shortly afterwards James was appointed as a Director. Since then G7 has seen exciting growth, doubling the number of people and we are still actively recruiting. We are expecting to maintain a healthy and balanced period of growth as new opportunities are identified and moved into.


Looking to the Future

Building on what we know; offering the Application Managed Service to more customers, across all modules and sectors. This means we can tailor the package to your needs, in response to the particular challenges your business faces thus taking the pressure off your in-house support team(s). Some clients choose to use this service in the initial ‘post go live’ period, and others as a continuing support package. It’s your choice. Others have found this of great benefit during upgrades using the G7 unique blended upgrade approach.

G7 has led and supported Unit4 ERP implementations across many sectors, including Education, Commercial, the Public Sector and Not-for-Profit since 2001. We cover all areas of the suite; financials, logistics, project, research, fixed assets, HR, payroll and more recently in 2018 Income Manager – as well as technical areas, such as data migrations and interfaces, hosting and Technical Managed Service
