Absa Vehicle Finance is now running their MultiValue application on an entirely Microsoft platform, thanks to partnering with ONgroup.
Absa offers a range of retail, business, corporate and investment banking, wealth management products and services primarily in South Africa and Namibia.
The company used ONgroup’s MVON# toolset for the changeover to .NET for the application run machine. Absa also selected SQL Server as the DBMS.
Now that the application is running in production on a Microsoft platform, Absa is ready to roll out functionality for both developers and end-users that is available as a by-product of relocating the application.
"MVON# situates sites in a highly reliable and feature-rich platform that is pervasive in the industry. Absa was a good fit for our toolset, because the application is mission critical,” said Alan Williams, Managing Partner at ONgroup Africa. “It would have been expensive and unnecessary to rewrite their custom software. They were able to retain their application logic while aligning their production IT platforms with current industry best practices. They can now start taking advantage of the features, functionality, and scalability inherent in the new platform."
Bernie Jardim, IT Manager for Absa Vehicle Management Solutions, said the platform is keeping the company energized while feeling both well-supported and self-sufficient in managing a performant, scalable, and secure environment for its users.
“We are able to do this without losing the software features that help facilitate our success. We have the added benefit of licensing the source code, so our colleagues at ONgroup Africa have helped us avoid the risks of being locked into a MultiValue-only vendor,” Jardim said.
