Gary Dugmore

Gary is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and qualified Prince 2 Practitioner. He has worked on numerous projects across a range of industries and business types. He was Process Owner for the Programme Costing solution on the BBC’s SAP implementation, where he worked for the first time with Colin. In this role he was responsible for the design and implementation of the solution. After the BBC Gary managed Agresso upgrades at Aston University and John Laing Plc. At John Laing Gary recruited the team that would later form Network4 Ltd.  Gary went on to work for Unit4 through their official partners Methods and Myriad Consulting and directly for clients such as the Francis Crick. He was reunited with his Network4 colleagues on Unit 4’s own implementation project, ‘One Vision’ where he was responsible for supporting the delivery in North America, Singapore, the UK, the Netherlands and finally Germany. This involved local configuration, training and supporting local testing and fault rectification. Latterly Gary has been working with Katerina on the ‘financials’ workstream during the post implementation stage, especially the reconfiguration of VAT for each country and simplifying process. Gary regards his specialties to be Planner, Project Costing Billing (PCB) and Fixed Assets, in all of which he has delivered official Unit 4 training courses. In addition to One Vision Gary has recently delivered for Coventry University an automated project pull through from Agresso Awards Management into PCB and Planner, reducing a 17 stage manual process to just two manual steps.

Our Valued Clients

 

The Francis Crick Institute

I worked with Gary on the end to end financial implementation of Unit 4 Agresso at the newly formed The Francis Crick Institute. This was a green field project, so there were no existing policies or procedures to follow when configuring the ERP system.

The modules we implemented were: P2P,  R2R, Fixed Assets, Grants Management, Planning and Forecasting.

As a Functional Consultant, I found Gary to be technically sound, logical in his approach to problem and calm under pressure. In addition, what sets Gary apart from most Functional Consultants is that he is also a qualified management accountant, which is invaluable when implementing finance systems.

I have no hesitation with endorsing Gary and would highly recommend him for any ERP implementation of Unit 4 Agresso.


Callum Johnson

North Highland Worldwide Consulting

Coventry University

'I have worked with Network4 on a number of projects, during which both Gary and Colin have been extremely helpful in analysing problems and implementing solutions. In particular Gary has automated a number of manual tasks here at Coventry, thereby saving us both time and money. Their professionalism, calmness under pressure and reliability are second to none.  I would recommend that anyone seeking a UBW solution utilise Network4.'

Louise O'Neill

System Analyst

CMA and Places For People

I worked with Network4 on a major central government merger project and again on a Housing Association UBW implementation. On both occasions Gary brought a wealth of experience to the table and handled additional tasks requested in a polite and professional manner.

Gary's pro-active approach allowed the project to stay on track and exceed
expectation, in particular his solution for the easy  capitalisation of housing stock components in the Fixed Assets module  and the late addition of time recording for case handling at the CMA. 

I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary and Network4 for all things UBW related.

Scott Nahajec

Programme & Project Management

John Laing Plc

Network4 managed all aspects of our Agresso upgrade project. Sandro and Gary were there at the outset, and understood the operational issues we had with Agresso. 

Based around his innovative solution design for a reduced client structure (105 clients down to just 5), simplified accounting processes and a cut down chart of accounts, coupled with eliminating hidden stored DB procedures Gary was the driving force in keeping it 'vanilla'.

Be it the development of bespoke  balance tables to provide our unique reporting requirements or using standard functionality to automate processes Sandro's technical skills quite simply made it all work. He also performed most of the technical upgrade himself saving us 3 days of expensive Unit4 resource.

We needed a self starter who was going to grasp the day to day issues with the outgoing Agresso system, but would also be able to add something to the development team so Colin joined us as Support Consultant.

To complete the team Katerina joined to take the lead on user testing and provide user training. She soon demonstrated her expertise, adding greatly to the build team and as an advocate rapidly built user confidence in the solution. After implementation Katerina proved to be equally adept at resolving user issues.

Colin was so successful that he remained at Laing to bed in the new Agresso solution long after the project team had left. He oversaw the successful migration of John Laing Agresso onto Milestone 4 in the Unit4 cloud that even Unit4 remarked on how easy the migration had been. 

If helpdesk calls, after a suitable bedding in period, are a measure of a successful upgrade then the 90% reduction in weekly help desk calls we achieved (about 200 before to 25 after) and the ease of the subsequent migration to the cloud its probably safe to say our upgrade was a success.

I would have no hesitation in working with Network4 in the future and hopefully will do so.
