ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning consolidates data into a single comprehensive solution. One of the major ERP solutions available is the Agresso ERP solution, a world-wide software platform provided by UNIT4.

Agresso Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP for short, is made up of various elements, including core financials, planning, budgeting and forecasting, projects, field service, procurement and HR & Payroll.

In addition to these, Agresso also provides for a wider platform including business process automation and reporting and analytics. Delivering information quickly and efficiently across the whole organisation.

The Agresso solution is widely used in the UK across all business sectors; Not for Profit, Local and Central Government, Professional Services, Recruitment, Healthcare and Education.

This key business software has also been successfully integrated to other third party solutions including Customer Relationship Management (CRM), student systems, eProcurement and payment, invoice and banking solutions.

Following the introduction of Milestone 4 back in January, the latest release from software company UNIT4, we have seen a large number of Agresso customers upgrading to this version.

The latest release brings new functionality, a new way of upgrading and the benefits of Mobile apps. With the introduction of user experience packs, Agresso has become a truly encompassing solution.

Current experience packs include Project Planner, Expenses, Modeller, Analyser, People Planner, Absence and Time sheets with more to follow in future releases.

The experience packs have been designed with the user in mind, providing an easy to use, intuitive platform for many day to day activities. Collaboration tools allow users to easily communicate with colleagues across the organisation, speeding up daily tasks and empowering users.

Project and people planner, together cut the costs of outsourcing and employment by showing both resource and availability, helping teams plan more effectively for up coming projects.

Modeller, a completely new departure from the core modules, allows users to redefine the structure of the organisation in real time with a simple drag and drop interface. A key business tool for those living in constant change.

Absences, has transformed the way requests for holidays, leave or travel are dealt with. The self service options and collaboration tools, allow a seamless route from request to approval.

Experience packs have one main advantage over previous versions and modules. The ability to be upgraded as and when the business sees fit. Businesses can manage these upgrades on a stage by stage approach, severely reducing the man power and costs of company wide upgrade projects.
