Enterprise software company TechnologyOne has secured an eight-year, multi-million dollar deal with Moreton Bay Regional Council to replace a legacy on-premise solution with its full OneCouncil enterprise Software as a Service solution.

The deal extends a 20-year partnership between TechnologyOne and the Queensland council, and includes the addition of property and rating, enterprise content management and human resource and planning products, to round out the OneCouncil solution.

Moreton Bay Regional Council spokesperson for Innovation, Darren Grimwade, said the move to a single, integrated enterprise SaaS solution would help the council deliver numerous digital process improvements for customers.

“We wanted to move to an enterprise-wide system that was fully integrated, offered a consistent look and feel, and was able to provide the system functions needed to digitally transact with our customers, rate payers, employees and suppliers,” Grimwade said.

“The introduction of TechnologyOne’s enterprise SaaS solution will make life easier for our ratepayers and customers who are demanding that we provide improved digital services.

“Not only will TechnologyOne’s SaaS solution streamline and automate processes, it will offer easy Web portal interactions which will support our Digital Region Strategy and commitment to the community.”

The announcement was made at TechnologyOne’s largest-ever local government user group in Sydney.

More than 320 users from 110 councils across Australia and New Zealand attended the user group, where Moreton Bay outlined how it was consolidating multiple systems and upgrading to TechnologyOne’s SaaS solution designed specifically for local government.

TechnologyOne chief executive Edward Chung said the new deal with Moreton Bay highlighted “TechnologyOne’s strong ties with the local government sector, as the leading enterprise software and SaaS provider”.

“After 30 years of work in the local government space, and more than 300 customers, this deal further validates our business model of a single organisation providing a full enterprise SaaS solution.

“It solidifies our longstanding partnership with Moreton Bay and their faith in TechnologyOne SaaS to future-proof council operations over the next eight years.

“It’s no wonder why our customers have rapidly gravitated to SaaS – it serves our customers far more effectively by simplifying their IT infrastructure, optimising the performance of their systems and delivering massive economies of scale.”
