TechnologyOne Celebrates Recent Success with Trio

TechnologyOne Celebrates Recent Success with Trio of Awards

Adrian Di Marco and Genevieve Smith receive individual honours, Business Intelligence software named ‘Best E-Business Product’

AUCKLAND, New Zealand – 1 September 2010 – TechnologyOne, a leading enterprise software solutions provider, recently received three accolades honouring its people and products as leaders in the technology industry.

Adrian Di Marco, Executive Chairman and founder of TechnologyOne, was recently awarded the AIIA’s prestigious Tony Benson award for outstanding contribution to the Australian ICT industry at a gala dinner in Melbourne.

Commenting on his win, Mr Di Marco attributed his success to the people who have worked with him at TechnologyOne over the past 23 years.

“I believe the success of our business is driven by tapping into the amazing talent of our software developers and programmers,” Mr Di Marco said. “Their passion, dedication, creativity and innovation have driven our success, and this award recognises that.”
In another coup for the company, TechnologyOne Director of Marketing, Genevieve Smith, has been chosen as one of two recipients of the inaugural Westpac Mary Reibey Scholarship. The Scholarship rewards outstanding women in business and is a partnership between Westpac bank and the Australian Graduate School of Management (ASGM) at the University of New South Wales. Ms Smith will now take part in a prestigious week-long General Manager Program conducted by the AGSM later this year. As a woman in an executive role in the ICT industry, a sector known for its lack of female leadership, Ms Smith said she wanted to set a positive example to other women working in the ICT industry.

“The recognition from this scholarship and the various awards we win across the business serve to inspire and motivate people in the company, helping our culture of passion continue to flourish. I will be using the General Manager Program to sharpen my skills in the operational, financial and strategic areas of business to complement my marketing focus and help TechnologyOne address its challenges and objectives.”

TechnologyOne’s Business Intelligence software has also won a 2010 Australian Business Award in the Best E-Business Product category, making it one of 105 recipients chosen from almost 1,850 entries submitted by more than 950 organisations.

The award for Best E-Business Product recognises products or services that demonstrate innovative and strategic application of the internet, communications and information technology.

Adrian Di Marco said that the award illustrated the company’s commitment to developing best in class software and providing real value to customers across the globe.

“This technology was built locally and is now competing – and winning – against Business Intelligence products developed by some of the world’s biggest software companies.”

Since launching in 2008, TechnologyOne Business Intelligence has been embraced by more than 230 customers in New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the United Kingdom, including the New Zealand Salvation Army, Far North District Council, Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, and NZX Limited.

The product integrates tightly with TechnologyOne’s suite of enterprise software and is built on the company’s Connected Intelligence platform. It offers customers a real-time, organisation-wide view across system boundaries, with the ability to drill down into information from a user friendly ‘dashboard’ style view.
