Council’s strategy is to be a SaaS (Software as a Service) focused organization. Following a recent competitive tendering process, the City of Moreland chose the superior Community Suite provided by Open Office. The project which encompasses Finance, Payroll, Human Resources and other associated modules will be implemented in the next 12 months. The evaluation emphasis was on the “strategic and customer centric”, rather than any one specific single point of minor operational functionality. Council also expects to achieve major cost savings by adopting an established Cloud solution.

Moreland Council will partner with Open Office to implement the modern business solution which will provide many opportunities for internal process and workflow improvements and efficiencies in both time and cost.
