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.
