Edinburgh Leisure embraces TechnologyOne software to support growth strategy

Edinburgh Leisure is looking to transform its operations with the help of TechnologyOne’s enterprise software. 

The TechnologyOne solution will support Edinburgh Leisure’s plans for continued growth, providing a single, integrated platform with financial management, budget management and information management capabilities. 

Edinburgh Leisure was created in 1998 to manage and develop sport and leisure services on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council. The company is now the biggest sport and leisure provider in Edinburgh, hosting the diving event for Glasgow's Commonwealth Games.

Edinburgh Leisure has doubled its revenue in the last 10 years, despite an era of restricted public spending and increasing competitive pressure from private operators. The organisation has continued to evolve its operations to remain competitive in this challenging environment. 

Meanwhile, TechnologyOne reinforced its commitment to the United Kingdom earlier this year with the appointment of senior executive, Roger Phare as Operating Officer UK. Mr Phare brings extensive knowledge of the company’s operations, as well as a track record in building a high performing sales organisation in a new market. 

The company also increased its footprint in the UK in the first half of the year, adding additional new customers The East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Adam Smith College and Pepper Finance Ireland.
