Agresso Business World's Post-Implementation Agility Chosen Instead of
SAP or Microsoft Dynamics NAV
VICTORIA, BC and DALLAS, Jan. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - UNIT4 Business Software (http://www.unit4software.com), the North American subsidiary of UNIT4, the world's leading provider
of business software for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC(TM)), has
signed a significant deal with Toronto and Region Conservation
Authority (TRCA). The $677,200 CAD contract in license and services
will see TRCA reduce its need for IT resources and increase its ability
to respond rapidly to change through the implementation of Agresso
Business World's latest version called Route 66, epitomizing the next
generation of fast, flexible and user-friendly enterprise resource
planning (ERP) software. TRCA selected Agresso Business World's
Financials, Procurement, Planner, Project Costing & Billing and
Reporting modules ahead of large-market ERP solutions SAP and Microsoft
TRCA controls over 40,000 acres of land in the Toronto region. It has a
strong history in watershed management and leadership in applying
sustainability practices. Offering knowledge, education and engagement
for youth and communities through its facilities and programs, TRCA
works alongside municipal partners, corporations and community groups
alike to make the Toronto region a greener, healthier place to live.
"We manage an ever increasing number of stakeholder relationships,
business lines and projects that will likely grow and change in the
future. We chose a system that could handle both this known and unknown
change effectively while still providing us with timely and accurate
information to support decision-making - now and in the future," says
James W. Dillane, Director, Finance and Business Services for TRCA.
UNIT4 Business Software works with a number of nonprofit organizations
in North America including Save the Children, TRIUMF, ACDI/VOCA, the
International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, and the International
Partnership for Microbicides. These organizations share a need to
respond swiftly and cost-effectively to business change like changing
funding levels, new funding structures and regulatory requirements
while still delivering total accountability and transparency. "Like
many of our nonprofit customers, Toronto and Region Conservation
Authority wanted an accurate view of the big picture at all times.
Agresso Business World delivers this in an integrated system that's
founded on its differentiating VITA architecture which smartly couples
data, process and reporting/analytics to move in lock-step. This
fundamental capability guarantees meeting TRCA's needs now and going
forward," says Shelley Zapp, president of UNIT4 Business Software.
With hundreds of nonprofit customers worldwide, UNIT4 thoroughly
understands the needs of these organizations and provides them with the
agility to operate efficiently with a low ongoing cost of ownership.
This enables UNIT4's nonprofit customers to turn a far higher
percentage of grants and other funding into services that best help
their stakeholders and causes.
