In addition, MiPro will help deploy PeopleSoft's HCM Employee Self-Service and Talent Acquisition modules.

"We are delighted to have earned this strategic business from a such a progressive utility company and look forward to a close working relationship with EKPC over the coming years," said Chris Bishop, president of MiPro Consulting.
