TechnologyOne says the transformative project — delivered over the next five years — will provide numerous benefits for the council including a modern online platform and consistent user interface, where the community can self-service online at any time.
Yarra Ranges chief executive Tammi Rose said the Council chose TechnologyOne because its solution aligned strongly with its strategic direction to change the way it thinks, works and delivers for the community.
“Our existing core business systems lacked the integration and sophistication required to better understand and serve our customers,” Rose said.
“Moving to Software as a Service will remove the complexity of running and updating our software and infrastructure as TechnologyOne will take care of this for us.
“This simplified approach will allow us to become more efficient, more agile and draw upon real-time information with ease.”
Stuart MacDonald, chief operating officer, TechnologyOne, said the deal signifies TechnologyOne’s “continued strength as the preferred supplier for Local Government enterprise SaaS solutions”.
“We’re proud to continue our longstanding partnership with Yarra Ranges Council,” he said.
“As councils evolve, they need a technology partner that will continue to evolve with them and meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs.
“Our ability to evolve, innovate and change has been key to our success – we offer greater flexibility via a true enterprise SaaS solution with powerful mobile capabilities. We’re seeing more and more councils mature and move to SaaS as a result of this – SaaS is the best platform for enhanced service delivery.”
