    Clarity Systems helps health care organization improve corporate
    planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting

    TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - Clarity Systems, a leader in corporate
performance management (CPM) solutions, announced today that Harvard Pilgrim
Health Care has selected Clarity 6 software to enhance its corporate
performance management initiative. Harvard Pilgrim is one of New England's
largest full-service health benefits organizations providing a variety of
insurance plan options and self-funding arrangements to more than one million
members.
    Driving Harvard Pilgrim's decision to purchase and implement Clarity 6
was the company's need for a single web-based suite of integrated solutions to
manage, plan and forecast their budget effectively across the organization
while leveraging their existing investment in both Oracle and Microsoft
Analysis Services (MSAS) databases.
    "We are very pleased with the capability of Clarity Systems' software,"
said Charlie Nugent, Manager Cost Allocations and Management reporting at
Harvard Pilgrim. "Using Clarity 6 will increase our visibility across the
organization and is critical to company performance. What we were interested
in was upgrading our spreadsheet budgeting and forecasting processes, using an
application that was a single consistent source for tracking and reporting
budget performance across Harvard Pilgrim. We are excited about having a
single, consistent source for full corporate performance management. Clarity 6
will help us proactively assess and analyze results to facilitate key
decisions."
    Looking to establish performance measures to support overall strategy,
Harvard Pilgrim also selected Clarity Systems for its unified product,
consulting expertise, and ability to execute in a timely and costly fashion.
Clarity 6 will act as a central repository for Harvard Pilgrim's data,
ensuring consistency and transparency throughout the organization on its
overall performance and action plans.
    "Our exceptional professional services team has helped Harvard Pilgrim
use Clarity 6's flexibility to transform the product to fit into their
specific business model - and do all this at a reasonable cost," said Frank
Pizzolato, CEO, Clarity Systems. "Our focus has always been on improving
financial processes and providing organizations with clear insight into their
corporate performance. This latest partnership with Harvard Pilgrim offers
them a highly scalable, feature-rich platform through which their organization
can better their planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting
methodologies."
