The Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGT) media group is replacing and consolidating the financial systems of its two largest divisions as part of a plan to standardise and modernise the back-office systems.
Matt Page, DMGT programme director, said, "The Agresso system will enable us to share knowledge and expertise between divisions, allowing us to implement improved best practice processes that are more efficient, automated and effective."
DMGT is to implement a number of Agresso modules, including core financials, purchasing, reporting, fixed assets, travel expenses and workflow to standardise processes across 20 different businesses that previous used a variety of legacy systems.
Page said DMGT had conducted a thorough comparison of products on the market and had chosen Agresso because it met the highest number of requirements.
"Agresso also offered a high level of flexibility to accommodate business change and the company was willing to work in partnership with DMGT to strengthen some areas of core modules using DMGT's specifications," Page said.
