New York, NY - IQM2 announced today that Texas-based Pedernales Electric Cooperative (“PEC”), the largest electric co-op in the United States, has selected IQM2, Inc. in a competitive evaluation process to manage their public meeting process via IQM2’s public Meeting Management System “MMS™,” the M2 software suite.

“After an exhaustive search and evaluation process, our organization mutually agreed that IQM2 offered the best solution in the industry,” stated Pete Slover, PEC’s Governance Officer. “Ultimately it was an easy decision."

IQM2’s end-to-end single streamlined application will allow us to automate the entire public meeting workflow process and then deliver the end result to the public via video streaming. We did not see that level of one-stop convenience and integration in any other products.

PEC’s Board and management is committed to openness and transparency,and opted for IQM2 as a key tool for further putting those principles into practice," Mr. Slover said.

In September, PEC broke industry ground by using IQM2 to begin livestreaming its monthly Board meetings over the web.

“The staff at IQM2 did an amazing job of implementing live-streaming, displaying flexibility and resourcefulness to meet the accelerated timeline requested by PEC,” Mr. Slover said. “Thanks to the vendor, the live streaming launch was flawless, and prompted a great response from our membership, regulatory officials and industry colleagues.”

In addition to the public-facing portion of the software, Mr. Slover said, PEC expects the internal facets of IQM2 to streamline, standardize and improve the preparation and handling of Board documents.

“Our Board, management and employees take pride in dedication to our members and IQM2 shares the same philosophy,” Mr. Slover said. “We are experiencing that first hand right now.”

“We are honored that the largest electrical co-op in the United States has deemed that IQM2 is the best solution provider in the public meeting management automation space, stated Daryl Blowes, IQM2’s CEO. It is a wonderful compliment. From day one PEC has approached this project with a superior level of professionalism, business acumen and focus. It is always a pleasure working with a forward thinking organization like PEC that understands that driving efficiency leads to improvement, cost savings and ultimately community trust. Their team of highly talented people is entirely committed to these goals and we are delighted to be working side by side with them to accomplish these critical initiatives.”
