Australian listed enterprise software company TechnologyOne has lifted profits for the 2018 financial year by 15% to $66.5 million over 2017.

TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE) said it was its ninth consecutive year of record revenues, licence fees and profit, with strong growth and profits underpinned by the fast growth of its enterprise SaaS solution.

TechnologyOne chief executive Edward Chung said, “Our SaaS offering is delivering a compelling value proposition for our customers providing them ‘any device, anytime access from anywhere around the globe’ as well as a simple and cost-effective way to run their enterprise.

“This is allowing our customers to innovate and meet the challenges ahead with greater agility and speed, without having to worry about underlying technologies. We take care of all of this, making life simple for them.

“Today, TechnologyOne is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company, though the market is yet to fully appreciate this fact given we started as a traditional ‘on premise’ software company.

“All new customers logos in FY18 were driven by TechnologyOne SaaS. We now have 347 large-scale enterprise customers, with hundreds of thousands of users, making it the largest single instance ERP SaaS offering in Australia. Our annual recurring revenue is growing very fast, at 20% per annum.”

Chung said TechnologyOne “continued to dominate in the local government sector, where we closed 11 new major deals with $80 million in contract revenue. We have more than 300 council customers and are continuing to grow fast”.

“TechnologyOne also continues to see strong growth in government with initial licence fee growing 17%.

“We continue to deliver exceptional projects at breakneck speed with several recent SaaS go lives being implemented in less than six weeks.

“The APAC region performed strongly with profit up 20%, underpinned by strong licence fee growth, significant turnaround in our consulting business and our market leading enterprise SaaS offering. We continued to invest strongly in the UK and remain excited about the significant opportunities for the coming years.

“We will continue to grow quickly, and like we have in the past 30 years, we expect to double in size again in the next 5 years.”  

TechnologyOne executive chairman Adrian Di Marco said: “TechnologyOne has consistently delivered strong and growing results since listing on the ASX in 1999. Our ability to deliver these results for 19 years has not relied on riding the cycle of the economy but it is because of our clear vision, strategy and our significant investment in R&D.

“TechnologyOne invested over $54 million in R&D this year. Our ability to successfully undertake large-scale cutting-edge R&D and to successfully commercialise it has underpinned our success. There are few companies in Australia that come close to the level of creativity and innovation at TechnologyOne.

“After many years of R&D investment, TechnologyOne SaaS is driving our strong results. We have today the market leading enterprise SaaS offering for the markets we serve.

“We continue to invest in new exciting ideas and innovation including Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which we will ship in our 2019A release in the first half of 2019.”
