TechnologyOne deepens commitment to UK with appointment of Operating Officer

April 2014 - TechnologyOne has reinforced its commitment to the United Kingdom with the appointment of Roger Phare as UK Operating Officer.

For more than 26 years, TechnologyOne has been providing powerful and deeply integrated enterprise software solutions that power more than 1000 leading corporations, government departments and statutory authorities around the world. 

Over the past ten years, the company has posted record revenues and licence fees in its growing Australian, New Zealand and Asia/Pacific markets, competing successfully against organisations such as Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and Civica to post revenues of A$180.6M (£105.4M) and A$35.1M (£20.5M) Net Profit Before Tax in FY2013. 

TechnologyOne has continued to increase market share against its large multi-national competitors in challenging economic conditions, due to a superior delivery approach which is underpinned by its Power of One philosophy. TechnologyOne does not use implementation partners or value-added resellers, and takes complete responsibility for building, marketing, selling, implementing, supporting and running its enterprise solution for each customer to guarantee long-term success.  

While TechnologyOne will continue to drive growth in its traditional regions, it is now looking to invest significantly in the United Kingdom. Given the size of this market, the UK operation is expected to provide TechnologyOne with significant long-term growth opportunities.

The United Kingdom is a compelling region for TechnologyOne, aligning with the company’s existing market focus and commitment to its seven key markets of Government, Local Government, Education, Health and Community Services, Utilities, Financial Services and Managed Services. TechnologyOne’s deep understanding and engagement with its key markets means it can deliver to its customers integrated, preconfigured solutions that provide proven practice, streamline implementations and reduce time, cost and risk.  

The company kicked off its UK operations in 2006, and now has 15 customers and 14 staff members throughout its two offices in Maidenhead and Edinburgh. The appointment of Roger Phare as Operating Officer has signified that the company will now enter the market more aggressively.  

Roger has been working with TechnologyOne since 2001, leading the company in establishing itself as the primary player in New Zealand’s Government, Local Government and Tertiary Education sectors. Most recently, Roger has managed the company’s sales growth across all regions as TechnologyOne’s Operating Officer for Sales and Marketing. 

Drawing on more than 33 years’ experience in the ICT industry, Roger will use his executive board, sales, operational and management experience to drive operations in the UK.
“I am confident that with Roger's extensive industry experience and knowledge of our business and competitors, we will see the UK region become a significant platform for growth in the near future,” says Executive Chairman, Adrian Di Marco.
