Duration: 1 Day

Level | Getting Advanced

Learn how to create, manage and visualise your data using our ‘Modeller’ tool which supports in-system organisation chart analysis for efficient hierarchy reporting.


Restructures are one of the most complicated processes an organisation can face so this course shows how the Unit4 ERP Modeller tool can eliminate these risks by allowing users to sculpt their structure inside the solution, showing all details in familiar on-screen charts with drag and drop capability for effective unit movement.

Removing costly and time-consuming maintenance of multiple structures, this course will provide an understanding of the tool, how to create your own structure views and support ‘best practice’ for the collection of reporting line analysis, and management information.
