Port Coquitlam Moves to UNIT4 Agresso ERP Software to Streamline City Operations [Global Data Point]

(Global Data Point Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The City of Port Coquitlam, B.C., has selected UNIT4 Business Software, the North American subsidiary of UNIT4, the global leader in software that supports business change, to provide an agile and flexible enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to streamline its operations. The implementation of UNIT4 Agresso will first utilize the software's general ledger, planning, and reporting modules to eliminate inefficiencies created by the realities of the rapidly changing challenges of municipal government. In addition, the city will move critical financial information to the cloud, thereby preventing lock-in due to UNIT4 Business Software's cloud differentiation around security, portability, upgrade elasticity and disaster recovery capabilities. "As the City of Port Coquitlam grows and changes, we need business solutions that are flexible enough to allow us to transform the services we provide to our citizens," said Robin Wishart, Manager of Information Services, City of Port Coquitlam, who finds its older legacy software lacking because its rigid design results in the propagation of numerous spreadsheets. "Agresso is designed to support the city as we conduct business as we see fit and affords us the power to quickly and easily adjust to new circumstances as they arise." UNIT4 Business Software's strong track record with municipalities includes customers such as the cities of Surrey, Kelowna, Port Moody, Penticton, as well as the Township of Langley. "The challenge for every government is to provide better public services while remaining fiscally responsible. Agresso delivers the flexibility municipalities demand in today's dynamic environment," said Shelley Zapp, CEO of UNIT4 Business Software. Over the next four years, the city will investigate expanding its use of Agresso to take advantage of more modules, including project costing and billing, human resources, payroll, and procurement.
