    Pros
    I think it is worth a look especially for smaller organizations. I think the price point is good and will work for a company that doesn't have a lot of exceptions.

    Reporting is easy and straight forward. Cloud upgrades are much easier and cheaper than on premise solutions compared to many other ERP software solutions.

    Robin W.

    This is very flexible, powerful software, that is easy to install, and has a small footprint.

    Cons
    Weird, meaningless terminology in error messages; eg Costc: Direct relation-connection not retrievable since parent field dim_2 is not filled in. Value for field dim_1 is fixed.

    Terrible Product, clunky, inflexible and definitely not value for money.

    Very flexible and includes a wide range of modules for many business needs

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    Business World is very customizable. More times than not, you can tailor the software to meet your business process, rather than changing your processes to match the software. Business World has a wide array of modules including core financials, payroll, hr and more. Since first purchasing Business World in 2005, the product has been able to grow with us and we have purchased many additional modules to fit our needs.

    Cons

    Because the software is so customizable, we run into issues when performing upgrades as we're not always running things in "default" mode.

    Vendor response

    Thank you very much for your review! We greatly appreciate it. We look forward to continuing to work with you.

    UNIT4 Agresso Delivers Flexible Power

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    We needed a mid-market full ERP product with a strong payroll module. We process our own payroll internally. We are one of the largest professional services staffing companies in the United States. Agresso is a truly modern ERP package, because it's based upon modern object-oriented code, not based upon COBOL, like most other mid-market offerings. Agresso can be hosted in the cloud or run on premise,...

    Cons

    The only downside with Agresso is that it is just starting to catch on in the United States, so even though it is the number 1 mid-market ERP in the U.K. and other parts of Europe, there are not yet that many consultants working with it here. That's unfortunate, since it's such a great software for large people centered organizations, like not-for-profit, professional services, education, etc. I believe that Agresso will continue to rapidly expand its customer base in the United States over the next decade.

    Using Agresso is painful!

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    Absolutely nothing, using Agresso is a complete nightmare and wastes my time whenever I have to use it.

    Cons

    Glitches, grinds to a halt and gives error messages when using via Chrome - colleagues tell me it's slightly better with IE. The welcome screen retains an old password instead of updating it so you always have to put the new password in once you've changed it. Completely counter-intuitive; one small but representative example is that you have to hit the "search" button instead of the return key to...

    Flexible, User-friendly, well-designed accounting software

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Automated large journal entry processes, automated investment allocation procedures, gave web-based access to end users minimizing calls and questions, improved state and federal reporting using attributes assigned at payables level. Would recommend highly to a mid-size or larger organization.

    Pros

    Powerful inquiry options both instant and report-based; flexible setup able to capture multiple unique attributes needed for our reporting; importing and exporting to/from excel very straightforward.

    Cons

    Could be more flexible from a display standpoint (changing display size/colors). Only a few other clients in the University Foundation field so few peers to network with.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your review, Rich! Customer experience is very important to us, so we're happy to hear that you are pleased with Unit4 Business World. We're always working toward improved flexibility in our solutions, and would of course be happy to welcome more of your peers to the Unit4 family.
