TechnologyOne signs Student Management contracts with QUT & La Trobe

Leading listed Australian enterprise software company TechnologyOne [ASX; TNE] has recently signed two multi-million dollar contracts with leading Australian universities to implement its Student Management solution. 

The contracts with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Melbourne’s La Trobe University reinforce the benefits to universities of TechnologyOne’s ‘Power of One’ business model and its commitment to collaborate with customers and develop end-to-end software solutions for the sector.

TechnologyOne Executive Chairman Adrian Di Marco said the company has cemented a clear leadership position in the higher education sector against the backdrop of significant industry upheaval as well as regulatory and commercial change. 

“These are landmark deals in the higher education sector, and highlight our strong position as the provider of choice for integrated enterprise software solutions,” Mr Di Marco said. 

“TechnolologyOne has a solid 18-year track record of providing integrated ‘out-of-the-box’ business software solutions to universities and our Student Management solution is a key part of our strategy for this sector,” Mr Di Marco said. 

“The scalability and depth of functionality of our solutions for universities is underpinned by our unique ‘Power of One’ value proposition whereby we develop, market, sell, implement and support our own world class, integrated software solutions. 

“We have deep industry knowledge of the higher education sector, and work in collaboration with our customers to translate this into a well support, long term technology roadmap.”

TechnologyOne has developed significant functionality that it provides to customers ‘out of the box’ and ready to use from day one. The software is incredibly flexible and highly configurable to allow universities to manage their requirements based on their terms, rather than the system dictating their business processes. 

“TechnologyOne Student Management eliminates the need for costly customisations or software development and allows organisations to focus their efforts on managing their complex business requirements,” Mr Di Marco said. 

The QUT implementation of Student Management, TechnologyOne’s largest in Australia, has commenced and will be rolled out to over 5000 staff and 40,000 students across the university’s campuses. QUT and La Trobe University expect to go live with their Student Management solutions over the next 1-2 years.
