Agresso’s Change-Embracing ERP Software Edges out the Competitors for Victoria’s Extensive Irrigation Renewal Initiative.

Sydney, 01/05/2012.
Agresso Australia announced today that it has signed a landmark deal with NVIRP (Northern Victoria Irrigation Renewal Project), a joint initiative of the Victorian and Federal Government, to supply its game-changing ERP Software - AGRESSO Business World and project management services as part of a major program of change within the water infrastructure sector in Victoria. The significant deal will involve the implementation of AGRESSO Business World, UNIT4’s flagship ERP Software suite, in addition to Agresso Australia’s professional and project management services.

Spanning the size of Tasmania and dubbed the ‘food bowl’ of Victoria, the region covers 68, 000 square kilometres and is Australia's most extensive irrigation network. NVIRP are responsible for the most significant upgrade to the region's irrigation infrastructure in its 100-year history with automated technology and repairs to outdated channels enhancing water delivery and efficiency. The project aims to recover water lost through leakage, seepage, evaporation and system inefficiencies through channel automation and remediation, metering upgrades and realigning the historical layout of the irrigation channels.

Following an exacting tender process and robust evaluation of leading ERP vendors, NVIRP selected Agresso Australia - a local partner of software heavyweight UNIT 4 - in significant deal to manage the project by implementing their world class project and operational management software, AGRESSO Business World. Renowned for its flexibility, transparency and ability to respond rapidly to changing requirements, AGRESSO’s easy-change VITA architecture will enable transparent and centralised management of the project’s resources, complete with precise process and costing analysis.

NVIRP’s selection of AGRESSO was the result of a highly contested procurement process involving the market’s top tier ERP vendors. In selecting AGRESSO, NVIRP demonstrated recognition that choosing the right ERP system was key to securing the regions viability and that in-line with the high importance of the state’s food bowl was the high importance of its management. After implementing a comprehensive and transparent AGRESSO solution NVIRP will now be able to analyse the costs of every aspect of the project and report their findings with minimal effort.

The overwhelming suitability of the AGRESSO Business World suite to NVIRP was echoed by CEO of Agresso Australia, John Catarinich;

“Agresso Australia is honoured to be working with NVIRP as part of an iconic program of change for Victoria’s food bowl, where irrigation infrastructure and water management practices will be revitalised in a manner which is unprecedented elsewhere in the world. In choosing AGRESSO, NVIRP will be able to continue to deliver innovative and high value investment decisions for Victorians by leveraging AGRESSO’s infinitely flexible VITA architecture.

AGRESSO’s financial and operational management solution, which can be reconfigured with astounding efficiency, centralises and standardises key data from the various modules, such as Payroll, Asset Management and Project Costing & Billing. For dynamic government enterprises such as NVIRP, which must prudently manage taxpayer dollars and provide transparency in project reporting, AGRESSO delivers a ‘single source of truth’ for the management of investment imperatives.

We are pleased that a growing number of Australian Government Departments and agencies, such as the Commonwealth Department of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) and Queensland’s Department of Education, have identified the advantages inherent in AGRESSO’s future-proof technology over traditional tier 1 vendors.”
