NZ Govt owned food safety firm moves to the cloud with TechnologyOne

“The TechnologyOne Cloud delivers our enterprise software as a service to our customers in a high performing, reliable and secure manner."

Global food safety and biosecurity services company AsureQuality has completed its move to the TechnologyOne Cloud, a move designed to reduce IT risk and positioning the business for future growth.

The New Zealand-based firm is owned by the New Zealand Government and was already using TechnologyOne’s enterprise software in an on-premise environment.

TechnologyOne Executive Chairman Adrian Di Marco says TechnologyOne’s Software as a Service (SaaS) solution has “empowered AsureQuality to prepare for a cloud-first, mobile-first world.”

AsureQuality is also using TechnologyOne’s new Ci Anywhere platform, which allows the firm’s employees to access their information anywhere, anytime using smart mobile devices.

“The TechnologyOne Cloud delivers our enterprise software as a service to our customers in a high performing, reliable and secure manner,” Di Marco adds.

“Infrastructure projects, physical security and disaster recovery were daily concerns for AsureQuality. Now, their only concern is who should have access to the software, while TechnologyOne manages the rest.

"Our SaaS solution enables our customers to reduce costs, adopt emerging technologies such as smart mobile devices and future proof their organisation.”

AsureQuality CFO Alan Bird says while some cost savings will be achieved by moving to the TechnologyOne Cloud, the key benefits are reduced risk and future proofing the business.

“Through the TechnologyOne Cloud we have an enterprise system that we can easily deploy globally to our 60 sites across New Zealand, Australia and Singapore,” Bird adds.

“This makes it a lot easier to scale up as we grow globally, which was a key consideration for us.”

Bird says the company explored moving its existing TechnologyOne software to a hosted environment, but preferred the benefits of SaaS.

“By using the TechnologyOne Cloud we always have the latest iteration of the software,” he adds. “As patches and enhancements come through we now receive those automatically, without needing to go through a formal or complicated upgrade process.

“Implementation went really well - in just eight weeks we were set up and using the cloud service. The whole system is now managed by TechnologyOne, and we just use the software.

“Our IT team can focus on activities that add value, rather than managing the back-end of the system.”
