Belinda Burnett, Software Analyst III for the City of Merced, CA wrote in with a thank you to Support team member Laura Mathis on her introduction to eSupport training:
"My compliments to you on your presentation! You have a great style. What I liked was that you had plan, did not jump around and answered questions with understanding. It was worth taking the time."


Jeffrey Blume, Director of Finance for the City of Ferguson, MO, writes:
"I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for the GLI Training today. I am writing because I want you to know how one of your more advanced user/customer's thinks of Harris Computer.

I have enough IT background, especially for an accountant, to make me a high end user. I have high expectations and I know the hoops I want my software to jump through. And generally I know how big the hoop is. That is why I would never use a product with less functionality and flexibility than GEMS. But I know how to get done what I need to get done with this product or I know how to approach the Harris resources to figure out how to get done what I need to get done.

Last year I hired a consultant to implement CAFR Unlimited. I use it both for CAFR and for monthly internal reporting. In implementing CAFR Unlimited we learned we first had to populate monthly budgets in GEMS. We [the consultant with a little direction from me] used GLI to accomplish that.

So, it is time for me to learn GLI. So when I saw this course offering just a couple of days ago, I changed my meeting schedule today to make sure I attended training. I now know I can and how to use GLI to populate any table. That's worth a "ton" to me.

Thank you for providing this product and this training."


Feedback from Blake's online SkyView training: "Great class!  It is exciting to get the training without leaving town. I am looking forward to the advanced class next week. The queries are especially helpful when compiling data for the ICMA benchmarking that our city participates in and also budgeting, etc. Thanks again!"

Patricia 'Trish' Hohenberg,
City of Richland, WA

Deca Wasson at the City of Casper, WY said, "Thanks Blake!!!   Awesome presentation!!!"

"Let me say how much we appreciated the time we spent with Blake for CAFR training and Budget Preparation last week. After a full day of training on the CAFR and Budget Preparation, Blake made himself available to staff to discuss any questions we had regarding our specific responsibilities. His depth of knowledge and unique ability to "zero in" and answer a question with clarity make us all more successful as we expand our skills in GEMS. I know onsite training is the most "costly" method of training, but when you have someone like Blake delivering the product so effectively, the end result is a satisfied customer equipped with the tools to make the most of the product. It was a great week!"

Linda Dasse, Executive Assistant,
City of Tracy, CA


"The training this week has been FANTASTIC, many kudos to Laura. Every day the group has come away with a new process or screen functionality that has helped streamline their work. This training has also helped the new finance director have more ownership of the product through a better understanding of what pulls everything together behind the scenes. Though we've used this software for 11 years now it's amazing what we didn't know or understand properly."
