Survey of Almost 4,000 Businesses Ranks Agresso Number One by Market Share With High Levels of Customer Satisfaction

VICTORIA, British Columbia (July 11, 2011) –

 

UNIT4, the world’s leading provider of business software for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC™), today announced that its position as the leading ERP supplier in Sweden has been confirmed in an independent survey based on responses from 3,773 IT and finance officers from companies and organizations in Sweden with 50 employees or more.

The research, conducted by market research firm DataDIA, illustrates the 25 most popular systems in terms of user satisfaction and the 15 largest by market share in Sweden. The report is available to download in Swedish. It shows that Agresso Business World is the most popular system, with 8.54% market share, with its nearest rival SAP taking 6.98%. Agresso also scores highly on customer satisfaction with a rating of between 3.8 and 3.9 based on a satisfaction scale of one to four. Only systems that scored between three and four are ranked. Most organizations that scored one, had decided to replace their systems in 2011. The survey also shows that Agresso implementations account for 11% of new systems installed in Sweden in the last 16 months.

UNIT4 has signed a number of large Agresso Business World deals in the past 16 months including data center expert Enaco and counts some well known Swedish organizations among its clients, including The Swedish Church, Bonnier, Viking Line, Onoff, PRI Pensionstjänst, Skogskoncernen Södra, and Världsnaturfonden WWF.

“We chose Agresso from UNIT4 because we felt confident it was a system that would grow and change with us to support our Nordic expansion,” said Tom Ekevall Larsen, CEO, Enaco AB. “It is important to us that we implement systems with a low total cost of ownership that we can easily maintain for the foreseeable future to deliver competitive advantage, and Agresso is at the centre of that strategy.”  

“UNIT4 is the global ERP market leader in solutions for Businesses Living IN Change,” said Stig Kjønstad, Managing Director, UNIT4 Agresso AB. “Agresso Business World’s unique Vita architecture sets it apart from competitive ERP solutions as it is widely acknowledged for delivering ongoing, post-implementation changes without the typical external IT costs and services that cost firms huge sums of money each year. Our customers in Sweden cite this business agility as a distinct competitive advantage and continue to recommend us.”
