Agresso wins £650,000 utility deal
Utility company Wessex Water has brought in mid-market software company Agresso to provide it with web-enabled financial and business information.
The deal is worth £650,000 to the Norway-based Agresso, which merged with Dutch ERP provider Unit 4 last year.
Wessex Water, which provides water to about 500,000 properties and removes sewage from a further 2.5 million, has taken Agresso’s project costing and billing module as well as core financials to maintain and manage its complex distribution and treatment network.
Nigel Reed, financial controller at Wessex Water, said the web-enabled aspects of Agresso’s system were important to the company.
‘We want to provide non-office-based staff with the ability to initiate purchase order requisitions remotely and eliminate paper from the procurement process,’ said Reed.
Agresso was chosen from a shortlist of eight European vendors.
