We have in-depth experience of a range of solution types, including web applications, data ingestion, intranets, CMS, and more.
Time and time again, Influential has proven its .NET development credentials. The development team invites you to examine a brief selection of their work:
Boosting Insurance Efficiency
Challenge: After a recent merger, a major insurance company found itself using six out-of-date, paper-based insurance systems. Recognising the limitations, security issues and inability to track KPIs, the company was in urgent need of a cost-effective systems upgrade.
Solution: The Influential SharePoint development teams were able to deliver a bespoke software solution that successfully overcame the challenges facing the insurer. The team modernised the insurer’s processes by building a digital task manager with the SharePoint 2013 platform. All of this was achieved at a reasonable cost and within a tight eight-week timescale.
Result: Thanks to Influential, the business now has instant global document access, digital filing and processing with secure daily backups, and a notification system for due dates and deadlines. Tracking has allowed monitoring, enhanced real-time reporting efficiency, and boosted productivity. The system is flexible and configurable, as well as future-proofed and ready to roll out to over 800 users in the corporation’s worldwide offices. As a result, the client is looking to expand the system further to include enquiries and incident reports, with a host of new tracking and reporting features.
Streamlining Banking Systems
Challenge: An independent UK corporate bank required an update and rebrand of its out-of-date customer website. The existing site made content changes time-consuming and cumbersome, with changes being scheduled in batches three to four times a month. This compromised the bank’s ability to ensure that site information was up-to-date at all times. As such, the bank’s new site required all elements to be editable within a simple .NET CMS, with multiple user accounts managed by an admin-approved workflow. Additionally, the site had to reflect the bank’s brand, align with their established social media presence, and include dynamic feeds such as RSS. Finally, the site needed to respond to devices and have content functionality, such as form downloads, adjusting intelligently according to the device.
Solution: Influential teams worked closely with the bank’s branding agency to define the customer-facing requirements of the new site. Next, our developers migrated the flat HTML design to an Umbraco CMS, as well as providing Umbraco training for management and design users.
Result: Much of the content is now directly manageable by the bank, facilitating up-to-date website content and financial information – which also ensures compliance with FSCS regulations. The website includes online forms for investors, with data travelling directly to the back office and generating T&Cs emails automatically. The secure customer login accounts created by Influential ensure that customers don’t have to repeat forms. Additionally, the bank benefits from an ongoing support contract with Influential, which regularly implements improvements to the current system.
