"Since 1986, we've been helping organizations reduce their healthcare costs by improving overall employee wellness and fitness," said Matthew Sylvestre, CIO, Plus One. "Over the years, we've gathered a huge amount of data that allows us to better understand and drive client success. With Birst's low-cost, on-demand BI solution we'll be able to more easily analyze that information, and show our clients how Plus One can further increase their cost savings."
