Attitudes towards business support systems are changing. Many organizations are looking for a single integrated suite of software, rather than individual solutions, but without the disadvantages of traditional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

In the past, ERP solutions have not only been a significant initial investment but have also required ongoing costly and time-intensive re-coding in order to support business changes after implementation. What’s needed is a more agile “total” solution designed specifically for ‘Businesses Living In Change’.

UNIT4 develops and delivers enterprise software that is ideally suited to both public and private sector organizations that operate in a state of frequent and dynamic change. Agresso Business World enables organisations to replace multiple, disparate third-party and internal systems, with a complete and integrated, role-focused ERP solution.

Built on unique VITA architecture, it offers core accounting/financials, budgeting and forecasting, procurement, HR and payroll, project management, field asset management, and reporting and analytics. It has been designed from the ground up to help users easily adapt the system, in line with ongoing business or operational change.

UNIT4’s solutions have a 30-year history of helping medium and large organisations around the world to improve their financial processes, automate operations and deliver greater value. This video illustrates a joint venture between next door neighbours, Stockton and Darlington Borough Councils, to provide transactional financial shared services across their organisations. The project, named Xentrall, is underpinned by UNIT4’s Local Government Platform and its Agresso Business World (ABW) ERP solution.
