“The education services were an important aspect of our success, particularly given our aggressive implementation schedule,” said Lori Thorell, a project manager in the office of the controller for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. “We had to get up to speed quickly to meet our deployment deadline, and Information Builders got us started down the right path.”

“WebFOCUS is our tool of choice not just for retirement reports, but for all administrative, financial and operational reporting going forward,” said David Huffman deputy director and chief technology officer at Indiana PERF.
