For a number of years, we have been helping the Wellcome Sanger Institute to make the most of their Unit4 Business World (Agresso) ERP system & through various projects, including new module implementations and major system upgrades

Our relationship began when we were invited to deliver a system review health check by the Institute following our successful work at the Wellcome Trust. Following numerous staff interviews, working jointly with the team at the Institute we subsequently analysed their requirements and made recommendations and a schedule of system improvements. A highly collaborative team of Integra and Sanger personnel delivered improvements across their various modules, as well as implemented new functionality and modules.
