- Improved access to and visibility of valuable financial data
Bristol, UK, 30 August, 2011. UNIT4 Business Software Ltd, the UK division of UNIT4, the world’s leading provider of business software for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC™), today announced that the University of Plymouth has selected and gone live with Logix4, a self-service data analysis tool powered by Nathean Technologies Ltd., that will provide enhanced analysis and reporting on the institution’s underlying Agresso Campus data. The University will also be using Logix4Web to provide read only information to selected users via a web browser.
Logix4 enables users to rapidly access and visually interact with key business information held in the University’s Agresso Campus Financials solution. Using simple drag-and-drop actions, users can explore standard metrics, while answering their own ad hoc questions with ease, building up powerful views to answer queries in a step-by-step fashion. This intuitive interface enables the execution of reporting and analysis requirements without any need for spreadsheets, customised reports or technical assistance.
“One of the main reasons we chose Logix4 was the pre-built analytics packs it delivers across the Agresso modules,” said Mark Taylor, Deputy Director of Finance at the University of Plymouth. “Like many other Higher Education institutions, we are relentlessly focused on using innovative means to uncover value from our underlying data. With Logix4, we can make informed decisions more quickly, use budgets more effectively, and achieve greater time savings and efficiencies. The return on investment has been immediate.”
“These are exceptionally challenging and changeable times in the sector and institutions need to be able to react quickly,” said Darren Hunt, Director at UNIT4 Business Software Ltd. “Logix4 provides decision makers with the information they need, quickly and cost effectively to make the right decisions first time.”
