UNIT4 Business Software today announced that Agresso Finance, part of the UNIT4 Campus Solution, has been selected by Sheffield College and UTC Sheffield. Chosen as part of a modernisation programme the colleges expect the solution to help them improve business efficiency, increase visibility of financial operations and to adapt to considerable sector change.
Sheffield College, formed by the merger of six Further Education (FE) colleges in 1993, is one of the UK’s largest colleges and UTC Sheffield is one of the county’s first University Technical Colleges. Both institutions are going through a period of investment and modernisation to provide world class services to students. After a rigorous procurement programme, Agresso Finance was chosen to equip them both with better visibility of finances and the tools that they needed to optimise all aspects of financial management.
As part of the UNIT4 Campus solution, Agresso Finance comes ready made for the sector, so that both Sheffield-based colleges can quickly take advantage of its inherent good-practice finance processes. Its unique architecture will also enable the colleges to quickly adapt the solution to on-going business change.
“UNIT4 is the leading provider of business systems to the UK post-16 education market,” said Anwen Robinson, Managing Director of UNIT4 Business Software Ltd. “We are thoroughly committed to the further and higher education sectors in the UK and globally, and we are therefore of course delighted to be working with two such forward-thinking colleges.”
