Client Profile
Client Since:


A Next-Generation Digital Platform

The customer engaged with Version 1 to deliver a next-generation digital platform for customers and help the organisation gain market share through the ability to differentiate itself from competitors.

The customer required a strategy to be defined which would allow them to deliver a technology transformation approach, including:

  • Defining an approach for agile release cycles
  • Decoupling point-to-point solutions which were limiting reuse
  • Assessment of key solution providers for core transformation initiatives
  • Definition of an operating model to adapt for architecture evolution


Leveraging the Power of DAPx

Version 1’s Digital Acceleration Platform, DAPx, was leveraged to provide high-quality design and delivery of AWS Cloud Architecture supporting high availability and secure solution within 6 months.

An insurance application was developed, which provides multiple insurance products (Car, Home, Van) to customers through the mobile application and website. The application is integrated into multiple insurance providers to provide a range of choices for customers.

Features for the application include:

  • Security Login
  • Car Registration lookup
  • Select Insurance Cover
  • Quote Retrieval
  • Credit Card Payment Integration

The MvP for this application was delivered over 6 weeks through a DevOps delivery model, with product delivery and integration into the customer taking 4 and a half months.
