Finance, banking and insurance

Optimation creates serious digital channels that allow our clients to create rich, compelling mobile and web experiences by harnessing the full power of real-time integration with backend processes and data. We know that speed-to-market is of the essence for our Finance and Insurance clients. Moving with agility, we draw on over two decades of experience in architecture, design and development to rapidly translate strategies and requirements into secure, highly scalable solutions.

Optimation has worked with all of New Zealand’s major banks, and with both traditional insurance companies and market disruptors. We have learned how to navigate the waters between wholesale change of existing systems and greenfields development entirely outside the current technology environment. In both these scenarios, cost and risk can be high, so we help clients find the optimal path that often lies between these two extremes.

We have created world-first Consumer-Direct digital Life and Health Insurance platforms that feature fully automated underwriting and a seamless, real-time process from application to payment and policy issue. Our team has also helped financial institutions ensure their IT environment enables compliance with new anti-money laundering legislation, provided ongoing support for core transactional systems, and transformed ageing bespoke e-banking systems into modern standards-based web applications.
