Agresso's Agile Architecture Chosen Ahead of JD Edwards, MS Dynamics GP and MS Dynamics NAV
VICTORIA, BC and MANCHESTER, NH, March 27, 2012 /CNW/ - UNIT4 Business Software, the North American subsidiary of UNIT4, the global business software group, has signed an agreement with Peace Hills Insurance that will see the company replace its aging green screen financial system with a single, integrated and agile Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, Agresso Business World.
Peace Hills Insurance is a licensed, general insurance company that has been insuring western Canadians since 1982. Committed to serving the community, the company does so by distributing their products through an Independent Brokerage System, giving them the ability to offer competitive products to their customers. Peace Hills Insurance made the choice to implement Agresso as the company's financial system because of its need for improved reporting in changing business conditions. "Agresso's flexibility lets us get pertinent information out to help us improve efficiency and make better business decisions," says Todd Krepakevich, information systems project manager at Peace Hills Insurance.
UNIT4 Business Software has seen an influx of new customers from a sector it calls Businesses Living IN Change or BLINC™. An almost frenetic pace of change characterizes these service-centric organizations, requiring them to be able to respond quickly and easily. "We welcome Peace Hills Insurance as a BLINC customer, a group whose momentum has been building with the recent addition of customers like OANDA and Silver Point Capital," says Shelley Zapp, president of UNIT4 Business Software in North America. "It's great to see service sector organizations recognize that Agresso makes the difference in getting accurate information out in today's ever changing business conditions, ensuring they can better serve their users, partners and customers," continues Zapp.
The agreement includes the Financials, Planner and Expenses modules from the Agresso suite.
