InPhase Contract

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

To renew the contract with InPhase for a hosted corporate performance management software service for three years.

Reasons for the decision:

The council has used corporate performance management software for many years due to the increased efficiency and productivity enabled by the software and the reduced officer administration burden.

Alternative options considered:

Generic services for corporate performance management software exist in the market, however, InPhase is a unique corporate performance management software particularly tailored to the needs of local government and the company has a long history of providing corporate performance management services particularly tailored to local authorities in the UK. Alternative services such as PowerBI or Tableau would require additional development work and expertise in order to provide for the requirements of Bracknell Forest. InPhase provides a service which minimises the need for additional development of a generic system.

Other reasons / organisations consulted

None.
