<SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 6pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt">CORIS is a fully-integrated, web-based offender management system (OMS) built from the ground up using Microsoft .NET technology. Supporting the CORIS solution are <B style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal">xwave</B>'s end-to-end, system-integration capabilities; these encompass project management; user training; organizational change management; data conversion; software development; and client support.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp;&nbsp; </SPAN><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 6pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt">The result is an industry-leading, enterprise-class OMS that, being fully scalable, effectively supports the needs of all state-level corrections agencies—both community corrections and prison operations. CORIS also supports case management, offender financial management, and central office information reporting.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 6pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt">CORIS' functionality incorporates a single database and electronic offender record, thereby enabling a seamless view of offender history, status, and other important data such as medical information and security alerts. Integral to CORIS' design is integration: CORIS connects all relevant user groups in real-time, thus providing a holistic view of the offender environment. Consequently, users gain an informed understanding of the offender population, and are able to make the best possible decisions related to security (offender risks) and treatment (offender needs).<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN></P></SPAN>

This is an important factor for clients because it not only delivers to them a higher level of functionality, but also eases and accelerates system maintenance and upgrades. This in turn eliminates technological obsolescence: rather than migrate from one obsolete technology to another technology that eventually will be outdated, clients gain the benefit of a flexible Microsoft .NET platform supporting features and functionality that, via the Internet, always remain current. <o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt 0.25in; TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in; mso-layout-grid-align: none"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-layout-grid-align: none"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt">Microsoft ..NET is a key component of CORIS: it is agile and flexible and built to evolve.
