The deal will see the ASX-listed TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE) deploy its OneCouncil SaaS solution to help the council simplify the complexity of planning and managing a broad range of its responsibilities, through the delivery of instant access to real-time, relevant information.
“We have a long-term relationship with Fraser Coast Council who have been using our Financials and Property & Rating product for more than 15 years, so we’re very pleased to see the partnership evolve to SaaS,” said Stuart MacDonald, TechnologyOne’s Chief Operating Officer.
“Fraser Coast joins more than 330 local governments in Australia and New Zealand, including the Whitsundays and Cairns, that are embracing our SaaS solution to securely empower their digital transformation.
Ken Diehm, Chief Executive Officer, Fraser Coast Regional Council said the council chose to partner with TechnologyOne due to its "high performing SaaS platform and fully integrated OneCouncil solution".
“Our mission is to provide timely, efficient, consistent and quality services that meet our customers' expectations. We no longer need to own and manage software or a complex computing infrastructure to do that,” said Diehm.
“The OneCouncil SaaS solution will remove a lot of overheads and help us to better manage our assets. We’re particularly excited about implementing the Asset Lifecycle Management suite as this will replace the three legacy asset systems we’re currently using.
“Over time, potential benefits include the development of a customer-facing online portal, which will provide customers with the ability to log on and see all their transactions with Council, such as owned properties, pending applications and animal records.”
The Fraser Island implementation of TechnologyOne’s solution is expected to start early in 2020.
