Transpower: Energizing New Zealand's tomorrow

    About the project

    As the government's entrusted powerhouse, Transpower shoulders the monumental task of constructing and upkeeping the nation's electrical grid. Their commendable feats aren't merely in their crucial responsibilities but lie in accomplishing them with a notably lean software engineering team. Their potency, however, is undiminished.

    By pairing their unparalleled expertise with cutting-edge technologies and unyielding dedication, they've continually powered through. And when they needed an extra jolt of tech prowess? We stepped in. Our strategic staff augmentation not only fortified their existing framework but also introduced fresh perspectives and renewed energy.

    The challenge

    Decoding the grid's puzzle

    Transpower, tethered to the stringent budgets and governmental guidelines, faced a multifaceted obstacle. Envision a crucial process where the sum they're permitted to bill has to be judiciously apportioned among clients based on their grid usage. Previously, this Herculean task was tackled using a jumble of incongruent applications, clocking in at a whopping nine hours of manual labor. And this wasn't a one-time ordeal but an iterative process, essential both for customer advisories and internal evaluations.

    The approach

    The Transformation of Transpower

    Our approach was a strategic combination of innovation and efficiency. We recognized the need for a comprehensive overhaul, with a primary focus on the front-end technology. Our goal was to revolutionize the user experience, making it responsive, and, above all, economically efficient. We envisioned an application where data flows seamlessly in real-time. By harnessing cutting-edge technology and design principles, we aimed to streamline a once labor-intensive, nine-hour manual process into an agile solution.
