To achieve the vision, Accent help to support and sustain tenancies and communities by providing high quality homes and services to meet local priorities, including housing need, financial inclusion initiatives, employment opportunities and training to help people into employment. The Group’s four strategic objectives are;

• Deliver excellent, value for money services
• Provide high quality homes
• Promote sustainable lives and communities
• Be a successful and ambitious business. 

Accent introduced and implemented Agresso in 2009 as their finance system and one of their three main strategic systems. They used Agresso version 5.5.3 and chose to upgrade to Agresso Milestone 4 in 2014.
The aim of the project was to work closely with an organisation offering Agresso consultancy support which could fully understand the current landscape and configuration, including any bespoke changes, and help Accent understand the opportunities and threats that Milestone4 may bring.

On the recommendation of UNIT4; Accent chose to work with williamswoodward to support the upgrade project.A close working partnership ensured that the project was delivered to time and to budget.

What Accent said…

The success of this project is down to the close working relationships and in agreeing a clear approach from the outset. The personal skills and technical knowledge of the williamswoodward team ensured that the project went smoothly. We would be happy to work with them again and recommend them to other customers!"
Steve Dungworth, Head of Corporate Services, Accent Group.
