Agresso Business World’s post-implementation agility and integration chosen instead of SAP or Oracle

VICTORIA, British Columbia (October 17, 2011) –

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™), has signed a significant deal with the City of Surrey in British Columbia. The contract, worth $1,633,800 in software and services, will see the City of Surrey replace its numerous disparate systems and implement Agresso Business World Route 66, the next generation of fast, flexible and user-friendly enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The second largest city and the fastest growing in British Columbia, the City of Surrey selected Agresso Business World’s Financials, Procurement, PCB and Reporting modules ahead of ERP heavyweights SAP and Oracle.

The City of Surrey has an ever-growing population of almost half a million and manages everything from the most basic needs of a municipality like governance, emergency services and waste removal to funding grants, resources and other revenue-generating activities. With a growing number of families, immigrants and others looking to make the City of Surrey their city centre through opportunities in business and employment, the City is anticipating massive growth in the coming years.

UNIT4 Business Software works with a number of public sector organizations in British Columbia including the Township of Langley, the Resort Municipality of Whistler, Squamish-Lillooet Regional District, the City of Port Moody and the City of Kelowna that have a requirement to respond to business change quickly and easily, including rapid growth. UNIT4 also works with a growing number of U.S. cities with the same needs including the City of Sparks, The City of Laguna Niguel and the City of Ventura. “The City of Surrey is a welcome addition to our public sector customer base, made up of organizations that have recognized the need for an integrated system with enhanced workflow and reporting capabilities, giving them an accurate view of the big picture at all times,” says Shelley Zapp, president of UNIT4 Business Software.

With more than 1,500 public sector 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, enabling them to turn a far higher percentage of revenue, grants and other funding into services that best help their citizens.
