The Saskatchewan Teachers' Superannuation Commission (STSC) identified the need to implement a solution that centralized information from different areas across the organization such as task management, staff scheduling, document management and reporting of payroll and pension data.

This site is a dashboard type application that displays the important business information using a single point of access with a simple interface that is intuitive and easy to navigate. Some key features include:
