Sheffield College and UTC Sheffield Select UNIT4 Campus to Support Modernization

Agresso Finance to Support One of UK's Largest Further Education Colleges and One of Its First University Technical Colleges

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - EDUCAUSE Annual Conference - UNIT4, the global leader in software that supports business change, today announced that Agresso Finance, part of the UNIT4 Campus Solution, has been chosen by Sheffield College and UTC Sheffield. Selected as part of a modernization program, 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 modernization to provide world class services to students. After a rigorous procurement program, Agresso Finance was chosen to equip both institutions with better visibility of finances and the tools that they need to optimize all aspects of financial management.

As part of the UNIT4 Campus solution, Agresso Finance comes readymade 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 a leading provider of business systems to the higher education market," said David Turner, Group Marketing Director at UNIT4. "We are thoroughly committed to the further and higher education sectors globally, and we are therefore of course delighted to be working with two such forward-thinking colleges."

The company will showcase Agresso Research Costing and Pricing, its first deliverable of UNIT4 Campus, which was designed in partnership with the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, to help organizations manage the cost and pricing associated with research grant applications. Agresso Research Costing and Pricing enables them to produce accurate cost estimations and agreement on appropriate prices for grant applications for even the largest, most diverse or fast-changing national and international establishments.
