Agresso (Unit4 Business World) system upgrade

Filed under: Latest news — ckeitch @ 11:28 am

The Agresso system software will be upgraded from 6pm on Monday 19 February to 9am on Thursday 22February. This means that you will not have access to the Agresso (Unit 4 Business World ) system during this time.

The owners of the software have renamed the product Unit4 Business World.

The web address will also change and when the system is available we will share the new URL.  The system will be referred to as Unit4 Business World from this point onwards.

In respect of purchase/supplier invoice processing there will be a  revised payment run week commencing Monday 19 February.

The Payments Team will process a payment run on Monday 19February. Please make sure you send all approved documents to the Payments Team by the end of Tuesday 13 February so that these are processed for payment (please note that payments will be paid in accordance with the supplier’s credit terms).

Payment runs scheduled for Wednesday 14 February and Wednesday 28 February will not be affected.

If you have any questions, please contact the Payments Team.

For REO related functions, work will continue where possible, but there is a risk of delay in responding  to enquiries whilst Unit 4 Business World (Agresso) is unavailable. The REO team will plan to ensure that funder related deadlines are not impacted. Research authorisations will continue but where necessary they may be handled by email while the system is offline.

In the meantime if you have any concerns or queries, please email them to
