SuperConcepts consolidates its application platform on Progress
OpenEdge, standardizes web presence on Progress Sitefinity and delivers
engaging mobile app UI with Progress Telerik Developer Tools
BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: PRGS), the leading provider of application development and
deployment technologies, today announced that SuperConcepts,
an Australian provider of software and services for self-managed super
funds (SMSF), is standardizing on multiple Progress® technologies in
order to drive its digital transformation efforts.
"We've been through eight acquisitions and had many overlapping systems.
We needed to consolidate onto the best platforms for our business," said
Kurt Groeneveld, Chief Technical Officer, SuperConcepts. "We've used Progress®
OpenEdge® for our application backend for many years because of its
reliability, so standardizing on OpenEdge technology across the board
was an easy choice. We've also added several of Progress' newer
capabilities to deliver the modern features our customers demand."
The Australian superannuation (or pension) industry has undergone
remarkable change, and today's consumers not only demand anytime
anywhere access to their financial accounts, they expect the most modern
digital experiences on any type of device.
As part of its effort to deliver customized digital experiences to its
customers, SuperConcepts selected the Progress®
Sitefinity™ web content management platform to enable a responsive
web experience with machine-learning-driven personalization of content
and experiences. It also selected the Progress® Telerik® developer tools
to enable customers to rapidly create mobile application interfaces that
offer a rich experience to end customers.
"Offering modern digital customer experiences across any device type is
of critical importance to our customers. With Progress' Sitefinity and
Telerik technologies, we are able to deliver on this need across web and
mobile platforms," continued Groeneveld. "Progress has been a long time
trusted partner for us, and their vision for the future of applications
is perfectly aligned with where we and our customers want to go."
"To stay competitive, organizations today need to deliver the most
modern and engaging web and mobile experiences, and the mission-critical
systems behind them need to offer world-class reliability, security and
availability," said John Ainsworth, Senior Vice President, Core
Products, Progress. "SuperConcepts is a great example of how an
organization can reach new levels of success and growth by offering both
systems of record and systems of engagement that enable their customers
to acquire, retain and serve customers at world-class levels."
