Executive Summary

With annual expenditure of ?340 million, effective financial planning is essential to achieving the Reading Borough Council's aim of continually improving the quality of its services, while also minimising council tax increases. It also needed to deliver three and five-year budget forecasts to meet its own internal budgeting needs, which also brought the Council in line with government requirements to monitor its progress against the 2.5% year on year efficiency savings required by the Gershon Review. Reading Borough Council chose Fujitsu to implement Oracle Hyperion Planning Plus. Its Microsoft Excel and Web-based budgeting and forecasting tools give planners a sophisticated yet easy-to-use OLAP-driven enterprise-wide planning solution that delivers advanced medium and long-term forecasting with a high degree of accuracy.
