Key advantages

Unit4 Business World (formerly Agresso) harnesses the latest steps forward in social, mobile, analytic and cloud technologies. No other ERP system gives you so much control, so much focus and so much flexibility.

More speed, lower cost and no disruption in changing conditions

The rigidity and complexity of most ERP architectures means high costs, major delays and severe disruption for every single business change that comes along after the initial implementation. Only Business World’s unique architecture lets you embrace most forms of business change yourself without intervention from IT experts – simply, quickly and cost-effectively.

Business World has the only architecture that:

  • guarantees the data model, process model and reporting/analytics model are always in sync with the latest business change in the company.
  • “knows” who and what people are connected to – and from there what rules apply to utilize this intelligently.


A joy to use

Business World is the first cloud ERP solution built around people not programs. Now you truly can have fun working – with stunning design, outstanding usability and easy access to all the information you need, it’s easier than ever to get things done fast and right first time.

Better connected for a mobile world

With 24x7 access to your Business World Experience Packs, whatever your preferred device, and with mobile apps, to complete a wide range of tasks on the move, you’ve got everything you need to do your job – when you want, where you want, how you want.

Built for teamwork

Business World puts collaboration at the heart of your organization, through a range of online chat, screen-sharing and other built-in collaborative features. Colleagues stay close, information is always at your fingertips, answers just a click away and you can discuss and resolve queries in a matter of minutes – before they ever become issues.

Putting you in control of upgrades

Business World gives you the freedom to move your solution forward at your own pace. You can introduce new Experience Packs or upgrade ones you’re already using, when you want, in the order you want, independent of the core platform or other Experience Packs. You can also upgrade to the next new Milestone when it’s released, independent of any Experience Packs you might have installed.
