RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC — Chorus Systems

"Chorus has put together the right ingredients for a successful private technology company," said Tom Skelton, the company's chief executive officer. "Our product is ready, we have a strong pipeline and early successes in the market and we now have the financial wherewithal to support our rapid growth."

"We believe that the PreDix solution will provide us with the ability to reduce the overall cost of managing the large population of desktops within our organization", said Scott Meyer for Progress Energy in a statement when the contract with Chorus was signed last December. "Additionally, we expect to see significant improvement in the overall satisfaction of our end users as a result of fewer desktop incidents."
