    Genelco Software Solutions teamed up with the IBM eServer iSeries Benchmark Center in Rochester, Minnesota. Genelco wanted to document that the Genelco Group+ group health administration system could be scaled up to meet the needs of a Tier 1 large, high-volume group health insurer. A complicated and comprehensive scenario was created to emulate both the type of data to be moved, as well as the types of transactions and personnel that would be moving it.
