"In year one (since implementing AiDash IVMS) we eclipsed all targets for all operating companies including the utility after we implemented IVMS.

In Year 2 the targets got even tighter.  We still performed better than the previous year and still eclipsed all targets across the board.  That was for us, very positive results."
