Nedgroup Investments approached NML to rebuild their Secure site. Our combination of technical know-how and NML's agile approach ensured that a total rewrite of their site was delivered quickly and to very high quality. The new site was noticeably faster (one of the key goals), more pleasing to the eye, and handled communication to several back-end systems robustly and transparently.
Among other things, the secure site boasts the following features:
- Allowing users, financial planners and financial planning businesses to view the status of their investments.
- Allowing users to invest, switch funds and make withdrawals from the site.
- A flexible reporting framework, making it easy to create new reports.
- Tools and calculators for Financial Planners, including integration with Morningstar.
- A scheduling tool for use by Financial Planners to email statements to their investors automatically on a regular basis.
- Pre-populated PDF form downloads.
- Security model differentiates between users and the 'perspectives' those users have of the system.
Through-out development, security was of the utmost importance. The source code went through several security audits to ensure there were no security flaws in the code. NML used modern technologies, as well as development best practices like automated testing and continuous integration through-out the project, leading to a top quality solution.
