The NZ Central Agency for Shared Services (CASS) has chosen TechnologyOne to provide the Human Resources and Payroll (HRP) software as a service to automate pay for government employees and contractors across three agencies.

The five-year SaaS deal will service the Treasury (which operates CASS), State Services Commission and Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.

TechnologyOne says says the contract is for a cloud-first, mobile-first payroll solution designed to reduce risk, improve capability and achieve a cost-effective “as-a-service” model.

“The Treasury, with its fellow CASS agencies, brings our growing stable of Software as a Service customers to eighteen, and in New Zealand joins WorkSafe New Zealand, and Statistics New Zealand,” says TechnologyOne CEO Edward Chung.

Our cloud-based software that is agile, progressive, fit-for-purpose and configurable off-the-shelf, was delivered on time and on budget,” says Chung, in a statement.

“The remarkably fast uptake of our SaaS from government agencies in Australia and New Zealand reflects that our SaaS offering mirrors those governments’ focus on security and sophisticated enterprise SaaS requirements; and that we have the track record to deliver it.

“Our true multi-tenanted SaaS platform delivers unprecedented economies of scale – providing high performing software reliably and securely, with a highly available infrastructure that has redundancy built-in at every level.

“The trust we have built with the New Zealand Treasury over six years providing finance solutions shows how we can leverage a 99 per cent customer retention rate into a strong SaaS growth engine that keeps our customers ahead of the technology curve,” says Chung.
