E-business deal for council

Daniel Thomas
Kingston upon Hull City Council has invested £5m in three modules of Oracle's E-business Suite, in a bid to save millions of pounds and stay ahead of the Government's targets for making all government services available online by 2005.

The council, which already uses the customer relationship management module of the E-business Suite, is implementing the financial, human resources and procurement modules, to integrate and improve efficiency across these areas.

Tony Taylor, assistant chief executive at the council, said the Internet-based applications will cut costs across the organisation. "The Oracle E-business Suite replaces existing technology, which was fragmented and costly to maintain. Oracle's applications are highly integrated and enable front-office and back-office requirements to be addressed together," he said.

The software is designed to consolidate data into a single data model, and will help Hull to meet its goal of becoming one of the top information-age cities in the world, added Taylor.
