Challenges

OnTrack came to us after having a frustrating time with previous developers. On top of coding problems, there were also communication issues and work was not being completed. 

Codestream put in an agile development team that was quickly able to get to grips with the project and get code working for some important upcoming demos. There were also some complex calculations that were taking several seconds to run, which the Codestream team got down to a few milliseconds.

Solution

The application comprises of a questionnaire that gets people thinking about and planning their retirement, taking into account the whole household rather than just the person answering the questions.

It then runs a series of Monte Carlo simulations to assess possible outcomes based on assets, pensions and ongoing savings. The result is a summary dashboard that allows people to see into their future, and trial out different scenarios to see what impact it has on their retirement choices.

Result

After fixing up the code to make the product demonstrable, the team re-architected the solution to make it configurable for different corporate clients, allowing for a completely configurable user interface, and questionnaire.

OnTrack has now been select for a pilot phase with one of Australia's largest banks with a view to rolling it out to their employees and a potential 5 million customers.
