TechnologyOne ups local presence with new Darwin-based appointment

Technology One (ASX: TNE) has appointed Stuart Davey to head up the company's Darwin office to support its continuing growth in the region.

Stuart Davey will be based in the company's Darwin office as a Customer Service Manager to support the international software company's growing customer base in the area. The move further cements TechnologyOne's commitment to providing local support to all of its 800 plus customers across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the United Kingdom.

Following recent project wins with Darwin Port Corporation and the Department of Local Government, Housing & Sport, TechnologyOne made the decision to set up a Darwin office to ensure it would be able to offer truly local support from within the region. TechnologyOne has 15 unique customer sites across the Territory.

Formerly from New Zealand, Stuart has an extensive background in Human Resources & Payroll software, having worked at ANZ Bank prior to joining TechnologyOne three years ago. Stuart was the New Zealand Payroll Manager and oversaw the payment of 10,000 employees. Stuart's time at ANZ Bank also saw him take on an advisory project management role in a major payroll upgrade project.

At TechnologyOne, Stuart was initially employed as a Business Consultant for the company's Human Resource & Payroll product. With his new role, Stuart will extend his knowledge of TechnologyOne's enterprise suite, comprising eleven fully integrated products.

According to TechnologyOne Executive Chairman, Adrian Di Marco, Stuart's appointment is an example of the company's concerted efforts to provide local support for its customers; to make the implementation and support process as streamlined and stress free as possible.

"Our compelling and unique value proposition is our ‘Power of One' concept. This is, we develop, market, sell, implement and support our own software instead of using reseller distribution models. Stuart's appointment to run the Darwin operation reflects this dedication to our customers.

"Fundamentally, why would a customer want to spend significant amounts of money on ICT projects if the commitment to local support doesn't exist? This is how we differentiate ourselves against multinationals like Oracle, SAP and Microsoft, who don't invest in regional areas like Darwin and Hobart," said Mr Di Marco.
