A fast-growing company who engaged Merisis to provide professional advice in the area of project development and source control of IT projects.
After the success of the initial projects, Budget Insurance grew quickly to become one of the biggest insurance brokers in the country. With the launch of www.comparethemarket.com in 2006 and other strong business decisions, BGL saw the number of their policies, brands and partners rapidly increase, which in turn placed a higher demand for more projects and developers required to support the business. This created many problems internally due to concurrent development, project dependencies and a lack of staff knowledge and skills.
As developers of BGL Group's original web offerings and having advised at various stages in the growth of the business, Merisis was invited back to make a complete review of the technologies and methodologies used, interviewing members of staff at various levels, getting to understand the issues and make recommendations from an external perspective.
After a number of weeks of investigative work, Merisis produced a report detailing the results and conclusions of the findings, together with recommendations of how each of the problems could be overcome. These were then presented back to BGL in a prioritised list of changes to implement.
