Unison Networks & TechnologyOne strike multimillion dollar transformation deal

04 Apr 2019

Unison Networks has signed a decade-long deal with Australian enterprise company TechnologyOne, worth millions of dollars.

Unison provides energy to the Hawke’s Bay, Rotorua and Taupō. It is also the country’s fifth largest energy provider. 

Under the deal with TechnologyOne, Unison will transform its organisation through TechnologyOne’s integrated solution, OneEnergy.

Unison chief information officer Mike McGarvey says the company chose TechnologyOne’s solution because it offers the full breadth of functionality it needs. It also transforms Unison’s mobile workforce into a connected team.

“The benefits of a single, modern platform with powerful mobile capabilities will allow us to capture, input and access our enterprise data on any device at any time – whether that be in the office or out in the field,” comments McGarvey.

“Not only will this result in greater efficiencies, it will enhance data integrity and ensure we have access to real-time information for informed decision making.”

Unison Group chief executive Ken Sutherland adds that Unison’s search for an integrated enterprise solution is part of a wider strategy focused on futureproofing its organisation. A strong digital core is part of that strategy.

“Our focus is firmly on the future. Strengthening our core capability through a smart network and implementing an integrated business operations platform will improve overall efficiency across our Group,” says Sutherland.

TechnologyOne chief operating officer Stuart MacDonald adds that TechnologyOne is thrilled to partner with Unison for the next decade.

“Our OneEnergy solution does just what it says on the label – it will provide Unison with one solution and one streamlined experience,” he says.

“We’re seeing more and more organisations opt for a fully integrated ERP solution, as it simplifies operations and removes the complexity of dealing with multiple best-of-breed vendors.”

TechnologyOne’s OneEnergy is also used by New Zealand energy networks including Alpine Energy, MainPower, and Network Waitaki.
