TechnologyOne picks up 21 WA agencies from Oracle shared services project

Australia’s largest enterprise software developer, TechnologyOne (ASX: TNE), today announced it had secured contracts to supply financial management systems to 21 Western Australian (WA) Government departments and agencies, which were previously run on the Oracle Shared Corporate Services platform.

The deals, some of which include cloud services, establish TechnologyOne as the dominant supplier to the WA Government under the Common Use Agreement panel arrangement. 

The company already counts five agencies, including WA TAFE, the Corruption and Crime Commission and Legal Aid, as customers.  Across Australia, TechnologyOne provides software to around 150 state and federal government customers.

The WA Shared Corporate Services project was halted in 2011 after a report from the state’s Economic Regulation Authority recommended the system should be decommissioned. 

By the end of December 2013, every agency should be operating independent systems that have been evaluated and selected to deliver the required outcomes. 

TechnologyOne has supplied its preconfigured OneGovernment enterprise software, which is a fully integrated, preconfigured, enterprise software solution covering financial, procurement, contract and payroll management as well as business intelligence, project tracking and real time reporting. 

Because it has embedded, proven business processes, OneGovernment lowers the risk, time and costs associated with implementation. 

The agencies include:

  • Department of Aboriginal Affairs and the Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority, 
  • Department of Local Government, the Equal Opportunity Commission and Heritage Council of WA
  • Ombudsman WA,
  • Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC), 
  • Tourism WA, 
  • Department of Culture and Arts, which includes the Art Gallery of WA, Perth Theatre Trust, ScreenWest, State Library of WA, Western Australian Museum and Swan Bells Foundation Incorporated
  • Department of the Registrar, Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission
  • Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor, which includes Gaming and Wagering Commission of Western Australia and Racing Penalties and Appeals Tribunal of Western Australia
  • Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions
  • Department of Water

Three of the departments - SBDC, Tourism WA and Department of Water - have also opted to simplify their IT operations by implementing the TechnologyOne Cloud solution, making them TechnologyOne’s first cloud customers in WA. 

TechnologyOne executive chairman Adrian Di Marco said OneGovernment’s rapid implementation timeframes, the company’s proven track record in government, its cloud offering, clear accountability and WA presence were key factors in winning the contracts.
