Insuret is an underwriting agency whose purpose is to deliver market leading insurance products and services within specific industry segments including Car rental insurance for fleet
owners; Peer-2-Peer motor insurance; Commercial motor fleet insurance and Small business motor insurance.
Insuret’s core business product required significant functional and performance enhancements to maintain their market leading position. These activities had been commenced but were not realising the benefits Insuret needed and were taking longer than planned.
The approach recommended by Integral was to first gain an understanding of the current state of the business applications, including a review of the documentation produced to date. The Integral Project Manager established regular weekly meetings between Insuret management, the Vendor and the Project to review progress and commence planning, using standard project monitoring and control methods and tools. The consistency with which the vendor applied rigour to their management of the project varied and pressure had to be maintained throughout the project to achieve the agreed functionality to the level of quality required.
The Australian economy is powered by transport and NTI is Australia’s leading insurer in that space. Integral worked with NTI to develop an advanced containerisation platform so it can remain at the forefront of the industry and respond rapidly to change.
NTI first adopted containers in 2017, leveraging the power to assist with new machine learning modelling techniques. NTI built a fit for purpose, container management platform during that period but as the value and opportunities of containers became obvious NTI needed to implement an enterprise level management platform. The NTI project team identified several key areas to focus on during their evaluation of various containerisation platforms.
After undertaking a proof-of-concept on a small group of applications, the project team found that Red Hat’s OpenShift platform was the best fit and value for money. Once the NTI team decided to adopt the Red Hat OpenShift platform, the project could then move on to acquisition and eventually integrating Red Hat’s OpenShift platform with existing systems.
Today, Heritage Bank has grown to become Australia’s largest customer-owned bank and is one of the longest-running financial institutions in the country.
The New Payments Platform (NPP) is a major industry-wide initiative to develop a new infrastructure for Australian payments. It’s a fast, flexible and data-rich payments system for Australian governments, businesses and consumers to meet their payment needs. Heritage Bank had an inflight project that had been struggling to achieve some of the broader business outcomes necessary to enable NPP.
Integral developed and implemented an integration platform that not only serviced Heritage’s immediate NPP needs, but would also meet their future integration needs. Integral’s value-add was the open architectural principles used on this important project—in effect future-proofing the solution for many years to come.
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND COLLEGE OF VETERINARY SCIENCE (ANZCVS) supports the veterinary profession in Australia and New Zealand through the assessment and recognition of expertise and rewarding of excellence.
ANZCVS needed a system where examiners working remotely could enter exam results for verification, moderation and storage. Their current system had little automation in the processing and recording of exam results giving rise to the possibility of human error.
After thorough elicitation of requirements with the ANZCVS stakeholders, Integral designed a web based solution built on industry recognized tools, ensuring readily available skills in the market. The system is hosted in Microsoft Azure to allow for on demand scaling as well as simple technology upgrades without significant configuration.
ENERGEX had a low level automation system in place for their field workers that was not handling the increased quantity of data, providing sufficient accuracy, or speed of delivery to the field.
When developing a replacement system, ENERGEX wanted the new system to improve customer service levels, assist field staff in completing safer and higher performing field work, and use a smarter, integrated electronic schedule and dispatch tool (Ventyx Service Suite).
The resulting solution uses Field Force Automation (FFA) technology, implemented with the latest release of the Service Suite solution from Ventyx and incorporated the integration of a number of ENERGEX’s host systems. This allows ENERGEX crews now locate faults in the network faster than ever through satellite navigation, tracking, and dispatch. The FFA computer system provides field crews with unprecedented access to electronic information about outages and customer premises from their vehicle, reducing phone calls and travel time during storms and other peak periods. The new system benefits millions of people throughout Queensland and New South Wales, providing faster, more efficient responses from ENERGEX.
Under IPA, all Councils are required to prepare and implement a planning scheme to help guide growth and change in their areas. Rapid growth in population, coupled with new legislation, prompted the Gold Coast City Council (GCCC) to plan an appropriate business solution for the future, requiring high levels of flexibility and efficiency.
The Developer Contributions Group is a specialist group in the GCCC responsible for calculating infrastructure charges on a daily basis. These calculations were manually intensive and heavily reliant on the speed, mathematical skills, and long-term concentration capabilities of employees. Integral worked with the GCCC to create a semi-automated program that helped support the human resources during this rapid growth. This solution aimed to achieve better satisfaction of legislative requirements, cost reductions associated with the implementation of the new legislation and the development of a flexible business solution that provided a framework for current systems and future processes.
Integral built an Oracle Fusion Middleware based SOA solution that integrated Oracle Policy Automation software (formerly RulesBurst) with the Council’s mainframe based Asset Management System, Property Developer Contribution and Geographic Information System to provide a streamlined, semi-automated process. This integrated capability was ultimately exposed as a web based application called the PIP Charge Calculator.
