Toowoomba council to roll out TechnologyOne’s OneCouncil platform

Aug 27, 20131 min

TechnologyOne and Toowoomba Regional Council have signed a $3 million agreement for the council to roll out the OneCouncil software platform.

OneCouncil allows local government to manage corporate, operational, stakeholder and management processes within the council, including payroll and regulatory reporting.

“Pulling out our financials, HR and payroll systems and implementing a new asset management solution was a huge undertaking and in the process of reviewing this we realised we needed to fundamentally re-examine how we do business, rather than just updating our software,” Councillor Mike Williams, deputy mayor and chair of the finance and business strategy portfolio at Toowoomba Regional Council, said in a statement.

“We tested the market looking for an integrated suite of enterprise software rather than a best in breed approach and shortlisted five vendors.”

Toowoomba Regional Council will roll out the new software over the next 12 to 18 months, with a focus on financials, human resources, payroll and asset management at the beginning of the implementation.

Fourteen councils switched to OneCouncil in 2012, in deals worth around $10 million, according to TechnologyOne.
