SuperConcepts Uses Progress to Drive its Digital Transformation Strategy

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)-- Progress (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."
