Lehigh Valley, PA - Millbrook Incorporated of Bethlehem, PA and Nodak Mutual Insurance Company of Fargo, ND are pleased to announce an agreement under which Nodak will license Millbrook's Management Information Suite of products. Nodak will utilize Millbrook's solutions and industry knowledge to provide robust analytics and reporting tools to accelerate profitable growth for the organization. Additionally, the Millbrook Information Suite will be employed as a critical centerpiece in facilitating processing system conversion activities that are ongoing.

Ronald Koester, Nodak's Senior Vice President of Finance, Treasurer and CFO noted that Nodak chose Millbrook after they reviewed the expense and time involved with building or licensing other solutions. "It was clear to us that Millbrook's pre-built, industry standard models allow us to implement what we need within very reasonable time frames and with very reasonable deployment expense. We do not have a large IT staff and we have key project members that are new to us and to the industry. The Millbrook models and experience will help us to transfer knowledge to our staff and to have ownership over the project."

Nodak will be implementing Millbrook's insurance specific enterprise data warehouse and data marts, analytical grid products and dashboards. Project implementation activities will commence in March.
