TechnologyOne has won an AU$15 million deal with the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria (CECV) to deliver enterprise software to 486 schools statewide.
After a global search, the CECV, which supports more than 200,000 students and 18,000 staff members, has chosen TechnologyOne to work with software provider Synergetic Management Systems to create an integrated administration system called eAdmin for the integrated Catholic online network.
According to the CECV, the system will see TechnologyOne provide enterprise systems such as finance, payroll, human resource management, supply chain, budgeting, and business intelligence. The systems will be used by CECV staff to undertake better reporting in line with government requirements and funding regulations.
TechnologyOne executive chairman Adrian Di Marco said the company was up against other international companies, but being able to win the deal demonstrates the company's expertise in the field.
"Winning the CECV deal over international competitors demonstrates our ability to deliver smart solutions, while providing proven functionality and innovative customisation, making life simple for our customers," he said.
CECV executive director Stephen Elder said the commission initially wanted a single software provider, but believes the partnership between TechnologyOne and Synergetic will allow them to build a comprehensive system.
This is not the first school project that the Australian software maker has been involved in. Back in 2010, it sealed an AU$67 million Victorian TAFE deal to replace student management systems. Other jobs that the company has been involved in included one for the Red Cross and Queensland's Toowoomba Regional Council.
