This year is proving to be an exciting one for Team Unitek and our powerful financial automation platform. From launching Version 3 of our intelligent automation tools to onboarding FTSE 100 customers and rapidly expanding the Unitek team, 2021 has all the hallmarks of being a breakout year for our team.
This sets us up nicely for a massive 2022 when Unitek Version 4 is slated to roll out.
