OAK BROOK, Ill., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Point Technology, the leader in Unemployment Insurance (UI) systems is pleased to announce the latest successful implementation of its Barts software solution and three of the Barts modules: IRME, SIDES, and Barts Dashboard in Colorado.  On Point Technology in partnership with the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment (CDLE) completed the implementation of Barts a month and a half ahead of schedule and on budget.

As the twelfth state to implement this powerful UI case management system, the CDLE has joined an advanced group of states in its quest to prevent, detect, and process both fraudulent and non-fraudulent UI overpayments.  Other State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) that have chosen to implement Barts include: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Washington D.C., Illinois, Kentucky, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Washington.  Two other Barts implementations scheduled to go live this year include Georgia and Puerto Rico.

This collaboration further strengthens their partnership as Barts is the second On Point Technology product the CDLE has implemented.  In 2007, CDLE went live with Aware Enterprise for UI Benefits.  Implementing these products aids Colorado in meeting U.S. Department of Labor standards of preventing and detecting UI overpayments.

Other states that have implemented Barts have prevented in upwards of $11 million to $20 million in UI overpayments.  By utilizing Barts' patented Fast Path™ technology, UI benefit cases have been known to be completed on average 20 days quicker than the traditional manual method utilized by investigators.

"We are excited to have provided Colorado with a proven solution that helps prevent, detect, and process both fraudulent and non-fraudulent UI overpayments. By implementing these products they can expect to improve the overall efficiency, productivity, and reliability of their UI program," said Mike Lorsbach, President of On Point Technology.
