TechnologyOne takes innovation on the road with Showcase New Zealand

Leading enterprise Software as a Service provider, TechnologyOne (ASX: TNE), today shared industry insights and software innovations at its one-day user conference in Auckland: Showcase New Zealand. TechnologyOne’s true enterprise-wide Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is enabling the digital transformation of more than 125 New Zealand councils, universities and companies.

Capitalising on the success of its user conference, Evolve, TechnologyOne Showcases take a condensed version of Evolve on the road. Showcase New Zealand is the fourth Showcase event the company has rolled out this year.

More than 300 delegates attended today’s event, which featured a keynote by TechnologyOne’s new Chief Executive Officer, Mr Edward Chung, and a line up of guest speakers in 30 sessions, across four industry streams.

In a keynote presentation, ICT Manager Ms Jo Wheat-Connelly shared Whangarei District Council’s journey to SaaS with TechnologyOne, noting how the partnership has been key to the council’s digital transformation strategy.

“Over the last 12 months, we moved our local infrastructure to SaaS, implemented enterprise content and search capabilities and moved our corporate system (TechnologyOne) to SaaS,” said Ms Wheat-Connelly.

“In doing so, we’ve reduced the cost of keeping systems running. Now, we can spend money in other transformational areas that will enable our vision of becoming a digital council.

“Our people are quite blown away by SaaS. Previously, there was a huge amount of work and effort involved in supporting and maintaining our systems. Access was restricted to when you were in the office, or using remote services that were less than reliable. Now, we have access anytime, anywhere and on any device. People love that.”

According to Mr Chung, TechnologyOne SaaS is uniquely positioned to support New Zealand customers into a digital future, as evidenced by the company’s continued and strong growth in this country.

“We are the only enterprise vendor taking a complete enterprise system and running it for all SaaS customers. This approach unleashes unparalleled economies of scale with all of the benefits and none of the limitations of SaaS. Our architecture is unique, it’s a single instance of software that is delivered simultaneously and can be fully configured to meet the exact needs of each customer,” Mr Chung said.
