Optimised use of people and projects

People & Project Management

Unit4 Business World People & Project Management Edition (formerly Agresso People & Project Management) is designed for organisations that constantly face changing internal and external needs. This enterprise software package allows organisations to get the best from their most important asset – its people, while having full control over direct, indirect and project-related costs. Additionally, the Project Management module allows organisations to implement the best project management practices for project-based industries.

Solution advantages

With Unit4 Business World People & Project Management Edition (formerly Agresso People & Project Management), organisations not only improve profitability, but also employee satisfaction.

  • People & project management all in one: A key area of integration for people-centric organisations is linking HR and project management. People are set up in the Human Resources module and immediately become available for activities such as posting timesheets against projects and tasks, saving both time and money by reducing the duplication of data.
  • Full project visibility and control at any time: Out-of-the-box query tools provide project managers with complete visibility of the project. They can anticipate issues as early as possible, keep progress on track and ensure all targets are achieved (e.g. budgets, revenue, procurement, time and travel costs, deliverables, etc.)
  • Central hub for all HR information: Create comprehensive employee records with an unlimited variety of user-definable information fields, which can incorporate electronic documents (such as CVs, cover letters, etc.).
  • Improve people’s productivity and satisfaction: Functionalities such as competencies and detailed skills analysis in HR offer project managers a powerful resourcing tool when used in combination with Project Management to find the right people for the job.
