  • Telstra Digital Business Online Ordering Tool (Development)

    I worked with Australia’s largest telecommunications company, Telstra, to provide tools for their business dealers. These tools cover an end to end solution including online order forms, order management, customer notifications with client and third party vendor system integration, and business process workflows.
    Through Agile methodologies and a great team and client relationship, I delivered a solution allowing my client to get to the market quickly and adapt the products and services offered. For example, the client was able to keep up with the Australian National Broadband Network roll-out.
    I was involved from the requirement/specification phase through to Go Live and subsequent phases while providing estimations, risk and gap identification, and driving software design decisions throughout, in addition to development.

  • Telstra Digital Business Solution Designer (Development)

    An ExtJS-based interactive online order form front-end for desktop and tablets. This enabled sales dealers to capture sales on the go and provided a great visual representation of complex orders to customers, ensuring complete and accurate sales orders.

    This solution required Design and Development of a Web Service Interface to the existing Digital Business Platform and Design and Development of the Front-End Application. Through Agile Development, this project had a quick release to Dealers with further Integration and features added based on their feedback.
