Spotlight TechnologyOne: SaaS Down Under
Headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, TechnologyOne is Australia’s leading enterprise software company. The firm’s flagship product is an enterprise resource planning software platform called the SaaS platform–SaaS being short for “software as a service.” The benefit of SaaS is there is no hardware or software to buy, install, maintain, or update. It’s based in the cloud, so using it requires only an internet connection. TechnologyOne’s software is designed to manage all aspects of the project and asset lifecycle from the start of the idea to completion. The platform serves 1,300+ customers worldwide and is customizable for government, utilities, engineering, construction, mining, infrastructure, banking, education, and health care.
One of the first tech startups in Australia, TechnologyOne was founded in 1987 and is named after Adrian Di Marco’s founding idea that gaining a competitive advantage would be the number one factor in his new tech company’s success. He soon realized that relational databases would become the standard and pivoted to embrace the future, investing all resources in building a company that would own the entire sales, consulting, and support cycle. He called it the power of one, and this continues to set the firm apart today. In order to guarantee its customers success, TechnologyOne does not use resellers or implementation partners.
