As the Baby Boomer population base edges closer and closer to retirement, the role of good pension management is becoming more critical. Houston Municipal Employees Pension System (HMEPS) was faced with an increasing pool of retirees and an outdated way to keep track of them all. There were too many hand-offs of critical data and streamlining their internal operations had become a major priority.
Through the combined network administration and programming talents of Houston Computer Consulting LLC, HMEPS was able to chart a course toward greater internal data stability and significant efficiency gains. This objective was met through equipment upgrades and the deployment of an internal website consistently tracking and handling pension benefit applications through the various departments.
HMEPS has eliminated the need to rekey data thereby significantly reducing data-entry errors and the dependence on excessive cross-checks in their system. This solution illustrates the power of a well-integrated computer application.
