Clackmannanshire goes digital with TechnologyOne’s OneCouncil

Clackmannanshire Council will use leading enterprise software provider TechnologyOne’s OneCouncil Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to eliminate paper-based processes and streamline supplier transactions.

TechnologyOne’s software will empower Clackmannanshire Council to drive its three key change points; to simplify systems and reduce duplication, to improve flexibility and availability for citizens and officers, and to use new technologies to improve council services.

OneCouncil will provide Clackmannanshire Council's finance team with a stable, modern architecture, which is intuitive to use. It enables integration with other council systems and removes the need for daily reconciliations, whilst increasing the ability of the finance team to collate data from multiple sources.

John Munro, ICT Manager at Clackmannanshire Council commented: “We’ve chosen to work with TechnologyOne because we think they are best placed to help us be different, and keep things simple.

“To truly change the way we work at Clackmannanshire Council, we don’t want bespoke system with endless customisations to fit our quirks. I wanted our team to re-design the way we function to fit a proven system, such as OneCouncil. With a go-live deadline of April 2016, we’re at the scoping and change-management workshop stage with TechnologyOne currently, and so far, it’s working fantastically.

“After many years of ageing technology and, in some cases, 20-year-old systems, we chose TechnologyOne to begin again, to modernise entirely.

“We’re particularly impressed by OneCouncil’s focus on data integration and providing easy to use business intelligence and reporting, while giving us total compliance with data security requirements.”

Roger Phare, Operating Officer for TechnologyOne in the UK commented: “By delivering our enterprise software as a service, TechnologyOne is providing the future of enterprise software, today. Clackmannanshire Council should not have to worry about the complexity of running or updating its software and infrastructure when we can take care of all of that for them.

“By removing the burden of managing their computing environment, we enable Clackmannanshire Council to focus on running its business.”
