AFL-CIOInformation Concepts developed COPE, the reporting system used by the AFL-CIO to both track the dissemination of information about political issues, campaigns, and registration to members, and generate standard and ad-hoc membership reports. Re-engineered from a legacy Unisys mainframe, COPE is a client/server system consisting of Windows clients. It employs user-friendly front-end queries, written in Visual Basic, to lead users through the creation of a query and report, and then dynamically generates reports. The system includes a foundation query builder, which was developed using Visual Basic.
