At Heifer International we are using Agresso globally for consolidation of financial information. We run several modules: Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Fixed Assets, Human Resources, Planner, Project, and Reporting.

  • Since the software is built with your needs in mind, it can be tailored to your specific needs.
  • System security is also created with your specific needs in mind and can be extremely detailed for various roles within the organization.
  • The various modules integrate well, if thought through system processes when building.
  • Consistent consultants has been an issue - trying to get someone that can help alleviate a problem when creating a new workflow was most challenging.
  • The "smart client" and "web client" versions have items that cannot be done in both (not due to security setup) and causes users to work in both clients to perform their work.
My main suggestion - as with any software implementation - is that the business itself MUST have business processes CLEARLY defined to use this software effectively. It needs to be installed trying to hit the main functionality of the process and not focus on exceptions to the rule. Remember that the exceptions will always happen and just make sure you have a manual way around it.

We are using it for Accounting, HR, Development, and Talent. It will be our back-end system. It address the problems of not having connected platforms throughout our departments. Centralizing our many different uses of data into one platform that connects all employee will benefit our organization as a whole. I specialize in the procurement side.
  • It has a great reporting function
  • It connects many different tables and data points together
  • It is great for international accounting
  • Their layout and limited web capabilities are a turn-off
  • They lack basic functionality in their web [version]
  • The implementation phase is bumpy since their guides and process documents are not step by step and are usually confusing
Unit4 is best suited for larger firms than need to link all of their day-to-day activities and procurement to a semi-modern system. It is less appropriate for medium and smaller firms. There would be too much functionality for them. It is stronger for the accounting and HR side of organizational management.
