Marketingunity are specialists in Web-based, collaborative software solutions for Marketing and Procurement.
Marketingunity is a privately-owned marketing software company based in Newbury, Berkshire. We founded marketingunity in 1996 based on the conviction that the most powerful characteristic of the Internet would prove to be not websites, but web-based business applications.
In 2000, we launched equator - the forerunner of the Marketingunity suite - the first Web-based software suite designed to manage marketing procurement. Since then continuous development, driven exclusively by customer and market feedback, has resulted in the current marketingunity suite – a comprehensive solution for marketing and e-procurement used by over 100,000 users Worldwide.
What is Marketingunity?
Marketingunity is an integrated software suite designed specifically to support professional marketing and procurement teams. It is accessed via any standard web browser, allowing all the parties in a supply chain to communicate, collaborate and contribute online.
Rapid Return on investment
In the past, businesses would buy a company-wide software package and spend vast amounts of time and money implementing it. So by the time the software went live, the original requirements had changed, and the software was no longer an exact fit. The new, cost-effective way to solve this issue is to buy best of breed software that addresses a particular business challenge across one function only. This means it is much faster and cheaper to set up – so the organisation gets a return on investment without the outlay of time and money associated with traditional software projects.
Although it is a package, Marketingunity is designed with flexibility in mind, and can be configured to meet a wide range of specific company preferences. It is quick to implement, easy to use, and generates short-term benefits. It provides a seamless route from single user to enterprise marketing, delivering rapid ROI at each stage. It can be installed in your own data centre or on one of our servers as required, or provided as a SAAS (Software As A Service) solution.
Marketingunity has worked for more than 100,000 people like you, in more than 1,200 companies, including some of the world's leading brands.

Chris Hopwood, Managing Director and founder
Chris has 42 years IT experience, in technical, sales, and management roles, focussing on the use of Information Management systems to create business benefits, in a wide range of industries.
This has positioned Chris well to spot how emerging technologies can generate business benefits, with some dramatic results, such as the William Hill Organisation becoming the first UK bookmakers to launch an online wagering site.
In 1999 Chris worked with industry professionals to create the original concept and design of 'equator' (the forerunner of the marketingunity suite.)
