Criminal intelligence system for software house
Client – a specialist software house specialising in software for police forces that had the opportunity to undertake a project for a very large overseas police force. This involved re-engineering one of their core products, but unfortunately they had neither the resources nor the cash flow to undertake the project.
DJH Associates worked with them to create not just a software development project, but an elegant financial approach that enabled them to undertake the project, thereby gaining millions of pounds worth of business that they would have been unable to obtain otherwise.
During the software development project, working with the outsourcers, DJH was also able to identify £293,000 worth of further cost savings by bridging the gap between the business requirements and the technical delivery capability, modifying the re-engineering in such a way that it could be executed far more cost effectively.
Monitoring system for national lottery company
Client – a household name in the lottery business that had a project to ensure compliance at the outlets who acted for them. It was a major project that had to come in on time.
Initially, they were reluctant to outsource, since the project was critical. However, they were won over by the creative approach suggested and managed by DJH Associates, and absolutely delighted with the outcome.
The project came in on time, to budget and met all expectations, contrary to the early expectations of those members of the company who had previously had bad experiences with other outsourced projects.
The key to the whole project’s success was the way the project was managed, being delivered in discrete elements which could be checked on an ongoing basis, leaving no room for any misunderstanding of the requirements.
Financial systems for very large European bank
Client – a very large international bank. The requirement was for a development resource to work on-site within the bank in the London office, able to operate independently and respond to the business requirements identified by the bank.
The team soon proved themselves highly capable, and grew consistently over eight years, providing a key service to the bank. DJH Associates was able to work with the bank’s project managers to identify the critical skillsets required and ensure that these skill-sets were delivered effectively.
Testing services for large digital media company
Client – a very large digital media company that delivers highly complex websites to household name companies.
DJH Associates provided an exceptional outsourcing service, responding to the ever changing requirements of the customer at very short notice, including setting up services during and over weekends to assist the client when real business urgency demanded.
DJH Associates ensured that the complex requirements of the customer were clearly understood by the outsource providers, through a combination of bringing the outsourcers to work on customer premises to build rapport and understanding, and clear communication throughout the course of the projects.
Mobile apps for revolutionary messaging company
Client – a company with a revolutionary idea for a fun messaging app in the highly lucrative sports market that is expected to go viral. The concept was not clearly defined, and the outsourcing company, assisted by DJH Associates, had to interpret what was required, responding very effectively to the needs of the customer.
The concept of the app was changed halfway through, since the customer realised that the additional value put in by the outsourcing process had significantly improved the way that the app could be marketed and monetised.
