The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania awarded the state's labor market software contract to Geographic Solutions. The New PALMIDS system, built from the innovative Virtual LMI Version 6.0 solution, will integrate with O*NET databases along with other national and state databases. New PALMIDS will be the official labor market statistics site for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
In a coordinated effort with the Center for Workforce Information and Analysis, Geographic Solutions is developing the New PALMIDS system with functions offering labor market research, job opportunities, statistics, and more in a dynamic Web environment. The system is built on the ALMIS 2.2 database structure. System advantages will include multi-tiered "drill-downs" for exact statistics or data research along with advanced labor market modules for job seekers, students, and employers.
According to Paul Toomey, President of Geographic Solutions, "We are pleased to have won this opportunity from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Virtual LMI New PALMIDS software will be targeted to provide enhanced services for analysts, job seekers, students, and employers, as requested by the Center for Workforce Information and Analysis."
