London, UK – October 14th , 2008– Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTU), the leader in delivering Rich Internet Applications Without Limits™, congratulates Presbyterian HealthCare Services (PHS) for being a recipient of Business Finance magazine and SAS 2008 Vision Award.

PHS is recognised for its use of Actuate Performancesoft Views, which is the basis for a Performance Management initiative that increases the transparency of performance data.

As a result of its use of Actuate products, all of the organisation’s 9,000 employees have access to relevant, up-to-date performance status information on key measures via the Web.

The Vision Awards, now in their 12th year, are the only awards developed specifically to recognise business performance management (BPM), which includes strategic planning, business planning and budgeting, performance measurement and business and financial reporting. PHS was selected as a winner in the Large Business category, over the other two finalists, Home Depot and Sun Trust.
