Moreton Bay Regional Council will adopt TechnologyOne’s full enterprise software as a service (SaaS) solution.

This comes as a 20-year partnership between the two organisations is extended for another eight years.

The multimillion-dollar deal includes the addition of the vendor’s property and rating, enterprise content management and human resource and planning products, to round out the OneCouncil solution and replace council’s legacy, on-premise solutions.

Moreton Bay Regional Council spokesperson for Innovation Cr Darren Grimwade said the move to a single, integrated enterprise SaaS solution will help the council to 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, ratepayers, 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. Customers and TechnologyOne spokespeople spearheaded thought leadership across the two-day event, discussing smart cities, digital communities, SaaS and mobility.

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

TechnologyOne Chief Executive Officer Edward Chung said the new deal with Moreton Bay highlights 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,” Chung said.

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

Local government is TechnologyOne’s largest market by industry with one in two local governments using TechnologyOne software.
