The Challenge


OCLC is dedicated to furthering access to the world’s information and reducing library costs. As a global non-profit organization, OCLC also understands the need to keep its own costs under control.


That’s why the company replaced its aging budget application and an assortment of Excel spreadsheets with a Web-based budgeting and forecasting solution based on Tagetik.

This demands a highly flexible solution from a management reporting standpoint.
