In particular, the SettleCore™ – Business Intelligence and Analytics Module, with its graphical screens for reviewing our MISO Day-Ahead and Real-Time awards and operational performance, has provided such incredible value in an easy-to-view presentation that it is used by generator dispatchers at the plant to individuals in our executive management team. It is easy to use and it greatly assists us with our real-time decision making and ability to identify operational issues and market challenges.”
