Benton County, AR Selects Innoprise
February 1st, 2013

BROOMFIELD, CO - February 1, 2013: Harris Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is pleased to announce that Benton County, AR has selected our Innoprise Financials and Human Resources modules.

Benton County has been a GEMS customer since 2003. When the State of Arkansas recently changed the account structure to a four-digit fund, the County looked to Innoprise.

"When we found out that we had to change our software to allow us to stay up with our state laws that were changing, we wanted to go with a company that had excellent support service. We wanted to go with a software that was proven and performed perfect and was user friendly. We wanted a software that was affordable," explains Gary Rice, Application Specialist for the County. "There was only one that gave us everything that we were looking for.....Innoprise."

The easy to use analytical tools in Innoprise's Financial Software combine power and flexibility, providing customers with accurate information to make informed strategic and operational decisions. The system provides faster access to information, the ability to easily share information across the enterprise, and one-touch reporting.

The Innoprise Human Resources module satisfies the needs of Human Resource Information Management by combining all aspects of Human Resources, Employee and Manager Self Service into a single solution eliminating unnecessary replication of data and process typically associated with traditional systems.

Benton County is the sixth GEMS customer who has chosen to migrate to Innoprise. The project is expected to be completed in early 2014.
