Expense management software provider 8common (ASX:8CO) is closing in on nearly two decades of service to the Northern Territory government with the securing of a three-year extension to its contract.

The company’s Expense8 software helps the department plan and book travel, reconcile expenses as well as provide tailored reports on a simple interface.

It has served the NT’s Department of Corporate Information Systems (and the 38 entities within this division) for over 16 years; among other government and corporate clients.

Today 8common announced a three-year extension to the contract – worth $475,000 in revenue.

CEO Andrew Bond said the company’s use of sovereign data centres and the fact it was IRAP-compliant (Information Security Registered Assessors Program) were key to 8common’s success.

IRAP is a cyber security standard, in the form of an assessment, which tech providers wishing to process or store Australian government information must meet.

While 8common was unchanged this morning, it has seen a solid 12 months, more than doubling in that time. It was one of the top 10 performing tech small caps last year.
