About the Customer

Aberdeen International Airport is located in the North-east of Scotland, serving 3.5m passengers per year. The airport is a key hub for the world's energy industry, serving 500,000 helicopter passengers per year, and many more on fixed-wing services to important global energy centres. 

Scope and Challenges

Following its sale by Heathrow Airport Holdings, AGS Airports Limited had to separate a large number of complex systems and processes from Heathrow within a very tight timeline while also ensuring business continuity was maintained and disruption kept to a minimum.

The search began and Unit4’s Business World On! ERP suite proved itself the solution of choice. AGS replaced its previous Oracle solution and completed a rapid and successful implementation of Unit4’s Business World. The company selected a cloud deployment methodology and met its challenging seven-month implementation deadline in time for the Airport Group’s year-end.

Outcome and Implications

AGS and Unit4 scoped the project comprehensively to ensure the go-live date was achieved within the tight time frame. AGS was able to run its first-month end, which was also its year-end, as well as cutting over its entire payroll system, effectively, efficiently and without issue on the new Unit4’s Business World On! ERP solution.


"Unit4 will give us the breadth and depth of functionality w/o the complexity of other systems" said Jon McGrane, Interim CFO, AGS

“It was a big undertaking for us as we had around 20 IT systems to replace and needed to decide whether an integrated ERP or standalone best-in-class solutions would meet our needs and the implementation schedule effectively.  We were confident Unit4 Business World would give us the breadth and depth of Financial, HR and Procurement functionality you’d get from the bigger integrated ERP solutions but without the price tag, complexity or rigidity.

In selecting cloud deployment, our team is freed of the administrative and IT management burden associated with managing ERP systems and can focus on adding more value and supporting our wider business objectives. Unit4 was the logical choice for our business.” said Jon McGrane, CFO (Interim) for AGS, and Transition Director for the separation
