Agresso develops and delivers enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions that are especially suited to organisations operating in a state of frequent and dynamic business change — especially those that are service based or in the public sector.

Delivering post-implementation agility

Agresso solutions give you the agility to change and update the ERP system yourself — and keep on changing it — long after implementation. This protects your corporate margins and helps in realising your business ambitions.

Business Process Management

Intelligent and customisable workflow, business alerts and process automation capabilities help keep critical tasks on track and push actionable financial information to executives concerned with controlling costs. This results in continuous improvement in day-to-day operations and more efficient use of your organisation’s people and assets.

Financial Management

A full range of key functions, including General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Fixed Assets, Budgeting and Cash Management, enable you to go beyond just meeting financial management, planning and reporting and support for future growth.

Human Resources Management

The single, definitive control centre and information repository enables you to manage and get the most from your organisation’s most important assets — its staff. A range of tools help your team perform their roles more effectively and efficiently. HR and other managers gain clearer insight into staff and available skills to plan strategy, run projects to completion with more quality, prepare for change and respond to shifts in the market of the business.

Payroll

The dedicated payroll support tools make it easy to reflect the exact pay, benefits and deductions arrangements that relate to each individual employee, as well as full administration and tracking of roles and positions and sophisticated reporting and modelling.

Procurement

These tools help automate procurement (from requisition to invoicing and posting) and improve accuracy, delivering valuable cost savings across the organisation — by reducing transaction costs and maverick purchasing — as well as improving relationships with key suppliers.

Project Management

Powerful automation tools to streamline administrative tasks, while providing managers with maximum visibility and control of people, processes and costs across the organisation. It is also underpinned by the full power of Agresso’s other applications and easy integration with popular third-party tools such as Microsoft Project.

Field Service Management

Agresso Field Force presents asset maintenance, inventory management, contract management, human capital management, regulatory reporting, preparing invoices for time/billing, and mobile workforce communication, as a single solution that solves two market needs by gathering the mobile field service and asset maintenance requirements under one umbrella.
