TechnologyOne continues its leadership in the public sector with another major government agency - the Department of Agriculture - moving its finances to the Australian SaaS platform.
18 March 2021 – DAWE is the first “Tier 1” department to move its finance system to software as a service (SaaS), a demonstration of trust TechnologyOne is proud of.
Ed Chung, CEO of TechnologyOne said the Department of Agriculture (DAWE) will enjoy all the transformative benefits of software as a service (SaaS), including strong cyber security and software that always has the latest features.
“This win is another proof point of the longevity of our 33 year journey and 99% customer retention, as we continue to deliver technology which is innovative and future-proof.
“The Department of Agriculture’s new finance solution will be deployed into TechnologyOne’s IRAP PROTECTED assessed SaaS solution, providing materially higher cyber security posture at no additional cost.
“Our Australian technology - the only true SaaS ERP solution on offer in Australia - will support the Department of Agriculture’s modernisation program which is set to drive massive efficiencies across the import and export of primary industries in Australia. In turn this supports Australian producers and will drive economic growth.
“As an Australian company, we are proud that TechnologyOne’s SaaS platform will find immediate efficiencies and modernise back end processes, providing important improvements for hardworking staff on the front line.
“It is pleasing to see our long-term investment in becoming IRAP assessed, along with our continued commitment to data sovereignty, will support to the Government at this time,” Mr Chung said.
TechnologyOne has a long history supporting government sector across Federal, State and Local jurisdictions. Most recently, they led the design and implementation of e-invoicing with the Department of Treasury.
DAWE and TechnologyOne are already well underway working together to migrate the on premise environment to SaaS, with the process expected to be completed by the middle of the year.
