Chartertech and SAS combine to support Macquarie University’s ‘Transparency in Higher Education Expenditure’ compliance

Chartertech – the Canberra-based financial services provider, management advisory and technology partner to public and private sector organisations – has signed a strategic partnership agreement with analytics leader, SAS.

The agreement sees Chartertech deploying the SAS Cost and Profitability Management solution to assist universities meet their obligations under Federal Government legislation aimed at ensuring full transparency in higher education expenditure.

Announcing that its first deployment of the solution will be as a service for Sydney’s Macquarie University, Chartertech director Michael McRoberts said, “We chose SAS for the quality of the enterprise-grade analytics and data manipulation toolset that underpins the SAS financial platforms.

“And while we have only recently become a formal SAS partner, we already knew the company well from having used its solutions in our own business for some years.”

Welcoming Chartertech as his company’s new partner, Dermot McCutchen – Alliances and Channels director for SAS Australia and New Zealand – said, “In addition to the obvious costs of providing any type of service, determining the true cost also requires automatically investigating for, and appropriately applying, the many not-so-obvious elements. The SAS solution will be doing exactly that to complement Chartertech expertise.”
