Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011 - Agresso Australia
UNIT4, the world’s leading provider of business software for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC™), today announced that it has secured a new contract with Premier League football club Manchester City. The 2011 FA Cup winners will implement UNIT4’s Agresso Business World ERP suite for sound financial and business management to support ambitious change.

Boasting some of the game’s most famous and talented players Manchester City has had a stellar season culminating in an FA Cup win in May. Behind the scenes the focus has been on bringing its business management systems up to the same Premier League standard as its players, who will be accounted for as assets in the system.

Over 300 finance and non-finance users within the Club will have access to the system for core accounting/financials, budgeting and forecasting, procurement and reporting and analytics. Agresso Business World’s unique VITA™ architecture has been designed from the ground up to help users easily adapt the system, in line with ongoing business or operational change.

Andrew Widdowson, Head of Finance at Manchester City, commented: “The Club is going through a lot of change and like any commercial enterprise is always looking for ways to drive greater efficiency and boost financial performance and profitability. We are experiencing rapid growth and needed a flexible system that could mirror our constantly changing structure and requirements. Agresso allows us to make any necessary changes to the system ourselves, even after implementation, without the need for costly external consultants. It is a flexible, functionally rich and highly configurable system that will generate the accurate and comprehensive financial and wider management information we need to help improve our understanding of the Club’s performance and help us to achieve our long term objective of being one of the world’s leading football clubs, both on and off the field.”
