Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has awarded enterprise software provider TechnologyOne a contract to help digitally transform its financial and business planning systems.

It plans to use the company’s OneCouncil software-as-a-service with the aim of improving its business processes, making efficiency savings and future proofing IT systems by moving them online.

It has previously operated on aging on-premise software used by the boroughs of Ballymoney, Coleraine, Limavady and the District of Moyle before they merged in 2015.

Council staff will be able to access business tools and information through a web portal. This will cover functions including general ledger, accounts payable, purchase to pay, expense management, procurement and financial reporting.

The local authority also plans to switch its payroll systems to TechnologyOne as part of the contract.

Business resilience

Mark Smyth, director of finance at Causeway Coast and Glens, said: “By switching to TechnologyOne’s software-as-a-service our employees will be able to access finance and payroll systems online, wherever they are working, giving the council even greater business resilience,” said Smyth.

“It will also give employees access to better management information and aid decision making, while also freeing up time, by reducing the need for manual data inputting.”

TechnologyOne said that over half of Northern Ireland’s councils now use its software.
