The Salvation Army, Canada and Bermuda, Selects UNIT4 Agresso ERP

UNIT4 has announced a new contract with The Salvation Army, Canada and Bermuda. The goal is to consolidate the organization’s financial management systems by implementing a single instance of Agresso ERP and support change and drive process efficiencies to almost 500 operating units.
The Salvation Army is an international Christian organization that began its work in Canada in 1882 and has grown to become the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country, active in 400 communities across Canada and more than 120 countries around the world. As a dispersed organization with complex financial, reporting, and receipting requirements, the Salvation Army requires distributed access to systems while maintaining central control for reporting and analytics. The organization not only has to account for multiple currencies, languages, and countries, each with their own reporting requirements, but is also exposed to both internal and external drivers of change including changes to funding levels and structures.
Agresso ERP was reportedly chosen over Infor SunSystems, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics GP because it seemed best suited to the complex structures inherent in such non-governmental organizations. The product’s VITA architecture is purposely designed to allow central changes to organizational structures without time consuming and expensive re-coding. The Salvation Army saw Agresso ERP as a single system that is future-proof against organizational change while providing the best functionality for accounting, reporting, and planning.
