Read an excerpt below from CIO, Ian Tebbett of Monash University, of how UNIT4 Agresso Research Costing and Pricing will help them succeed with their goals:
“Controlled research management practices are crucial for universities with ambitions in this area,” said Dr. Ian Tebbett, CIO, Monash University. “Research intensive institutions have historically struggled with the complexity of proper management processes. Few solutions exist on the market that can meet requirements end to end. State-of-the-art IT systems that draw the best out of our professional staff and engage them in delivering on our institutional goals are essential. UNIT4’s research management solution, including the unique Research Costing and Pricing, along with the company’s experience in the sector, promises the control universities like Monash require to be world leading in the field of research.
UNIT4 already provides software solutions to more than 400 Education and Research institutions, making us the leading vendor around the globe. This type of recognition goes a long way in supporting our emerging presence right here in North America and differentiates us from other research management solutions.
