The impact of substantial government cuts combined with increased service pressures meant Reading Borough Council needed to reduce administrative costs to allow them to maintain vital frontline services.

Fujitsu listened to the Council’s challenges, assessed the situation and recognised what solution would present best value in terms of efficiency and savings. The 17-year partnership between Reading and Fujitsu was consolidated through moving the Council to Oracle ERP Cloud and managing it across all the Council’s financial management systems. This has seen Reading become one of the first organisations to run an open architecture and adopt Oracle Financials Cloud in the UK and highlights Reading’s commitment to high level service provisioning for its citizens and moves it into the category of next generation councils that are both striving to be leaner and financially self sufficient.

The solution Fujitsu implemented demonstrates a true shift in the market for Councils looking to realise the benefits of ERP in the cloud. The solution provides richer reporting to budget holders, while most importantly reducing their operating cost. It also offers users a more intuitive service that can enable new employees to navigate the system far quicker than previous versions.
