organizations, today announced its nomination for two Victoria Advanced
Technology Council (VIATeC) awards - Innovative Excellence and
Technology Company of the Year. Headquartered in Victoria, BC, UNIT4
Business Software's recent launch of its latest product, Agresso

that marks the end of all-or-nothing software upgrades - puts customers
on the path to independence. "Our millions of users worldwide have made
it clear that they want to embrace a new direction in ERP. This has

nominations," said Shelley Zapp, president of UNIT4 Business Software.

enterprise-level software," says Todd Hooge, president of Metamend. "We
