Best Way to Celebrate the Old Certus - A grand Finale - Vote for Us




In May Certus was acquired by Accenture and I posted then about how it was a fitting outcome, much deserved.

Technically we move to Accenture on 1st October, so today we are still Certus, and it is business as usual.

It would be fantastic to have a grand finale and celebrate all that Certus has achieved.  A wonderful way to do that could be success in the UKOUG Partner Awards which will be announced at that time.





So I am asking you to vote for us. If you are our customer, or an end user who has been impressed with our projects or UKOUG presentations please vote. We believe in the user group and sharing the challenges and lessons learnt.




We have been nominated in 3 categories

UKOUG HCM Cloud Partner of the Year

The last year we have had several projects on the go. Phase two of DHL, a HCM project, which they shared at OOW and UKOUG; an architectural implementation of ERP for a global Financial Services; an amazing global HCM project with a very complex integration story as well as our joint project with Accenture at the Home Office which is currently in UAT, alongside HM Treasury that went live at the end of last year. We have also just kicked off a couple of other government projects.

All our projects are HCM and ERP but unfortunately we were not shortlisted for the ERP award. However our reputation in HCM is second to none so being successful here would be amazing.


UKOUG Middleware Partner of the Year Award

In true Certus tradition we continue to work with Oracle Product Development on PaaS, how we can extend the Cloud SaaS for our customers. We have continued to work with VBCS which I presented at conferences last year, and are currently working with Oracle on a prototype for managing workforces, which several of our customers are interested in.

Last year after Oracle Open World I was set the challenge by Certus to deliver a chatbot that actually uses HCM Cloud , no smoke, no mirrors and thanks again to help Oracle Product Development we first demonstrated this at the HCM SIG earlier this year, and then at Collaborate. We are continuously improving this and it will be a session at both OOW and UKOUG this year.

We continue with our eProseed partnership to deliver a wider PaaS4saaS landscape for a global construction company.

UKOUG Industry Product Partner of the Year


If we only win one prize this year, this would be the one. Our engage.gov solution for government is why we are leaders in government and were able to hold a Government Cloud Success Day in February and have many departments come and hear from our customers. engage.gov was designed to ensure that UK government could adopt Cloud as risk free as possible. Each project we have delivered has been on time and on budget and allows departments to embrace modern technology with confidence.

In the past I have been concerned that voters are put off because I was a UKOUG board member but that was never true, however this year I have finished my board commitment and am a 'free women' although still an active volunteer.

Please vote for us; help us have our grand finale.
