Driving Successful Outcomes
New Financial Services Digital Product Drives Business Expansion
A leading financial services provider specializing in money transfers had traditionally provided its services on a cash only basis through its walk-in retail storefront locations. However, shifting consumer demand and online offerings from competing institutions created the need for an online money-transfer service.
Our team quickly stepped in to help our client bring their online platform to the market. We conducted an assessment of the existing application and code and provided a roadmap for readying the site for an internal soft launch, then completed the necessary enhancements and readied the site for initial launch. Following a successful soft launch, we developed further enhancements required for international operation.
Innovative App Provides Frictionless Rental Car Experience
A leading international rental car company recognized that its manual process and paper contracts were resulting in wait times of 20 minutes, rising data entry errors, and declining customer satisfaction scores. We helped design and develop a fast and lightweight application that used the minimal data needed to reduce network traffic to reduce page and data load times. The application was deployed on tablets, mobile devices and desktops and incorporated a paperless contract for better user experience.
75% decrease in the check-in and check-out time
20% improvement in their customer satisfaction score
A leading provider of industrial services worldwide needed to fill a critical labor law compliance gap with their HR payroll processing. We created a highly usable and efficient platform to track the massive amounts of data for its 15,000+ American employees. In just 9 months, the company reached regulatory compliance.
New software responsibilities with high costs, a large user base, and unreliable resources brought unexpected challenges. They were directed to reduce headcount by 5%, so they needed an outsourcing partner to increase client satisfaction as well as lower overall costs.
An overall cost savings of over 40%
Increased productivity by 25%
Lowered fee structure by 20%
Created a reliable project estimation tool for better project accountability and cost-allocations back to the business
Through its Engineering Unleashed online platform, The Kern Family Foundation works to instill a entrepreneurial mindset in undergraduate engineering students across the country. We helped make needed improvements in search functionality, email marketing, content creation and overall user experience that helped to broaden use of the platform.
