Pulaski Bank, a customer-centric financial institution, was facing challenges in tracking and resolving issues that arose during the pre-close, pre-shipping, or suspense load processes. The bank had phased out its existing issue tracking system and was in need of a new, efficient system that would provide visibility and ownership to each issue, ensuring timely resolution. The bank required a system that was tailored to their specific needs and could streamline the process of issue tracking and resolution. The absence of an efficient system was potentially affecting the bank's customer service and overall operational efficiency.
About The Customer
Pulaski Bank is a customer-focused financial institution that understands the importance of timely issue resolution in the pre-close, pre-shipping, or suspense load processes. The bank is committed to providing excellent customer service and recognizes the need for an efficient issue tracking system to ensure this. Pulaski Bank is proactive in identifying and addressing operational challenges and is open to adopting new technologies and methodologies to improve its processes and services. The bank values collaboration and worked closely with the TDK team to develop a new issue tracking application tailored to its specific needs.
To address the challenge, Pulaski Bank collaborated with the TDK team to develop a new issue tracking application. The foundation of the project was established by defining the user experience, application vision, and technical foundation of the new system. The TDK team worked closely with Pulaski stakeholders, subject matter experts, and internal users to define the major themes, application vision, and design. The user experience was identified as a critical component of the issue tracking application, and TDK made it a priority to understand the personas and goals of the users. The application and design vision were implemented in development iterations through a highly collaborative process. TDK utilized an Agile development methodology based on time-boxed iterations, which allowed flexibility to implement the right features at the right time and pivot as needed throughout the design and development periods. The final iteration provided an opportunity for TDK to complete a robust quality check and code validation of the issue tracking system without the development of any new features.

Real-time In-vehicle Monitoring
The telematic solution provides this vital premium-adjusting information. The solution also helps detect and deter vehicle or trailer theft – as soon as a theft occurs, monitoring personnel can alert the appropriate authorities, providing an exact location.“With more and more insurance companies and major fleet operators interested in monitoring driver behaviour on the grounds of road safety, efficient logistics and costs, the market for this type of device and associated e-business services is growing rapidly within Italy and the rest of Europe,” says Franco.“The insurance companies are especially interested in the pay-per-use and pay-as-you-drive applications while other organisations employ the technology for road user charging.”“One million vehicles in Italy currently carry such devices and forecasts indicate that the European market will increase tenfold by 2014.However, for our technology to work effectively, we needed a highly reliable wireless data network to carry the information between the vehicles and monitoring stations.”
Safety First with Folksam
The competitiveness of the car insurance market is driving UBI growth as a means for insurance companies to differentiate their customer propositions as well as improving operational efficiency. An insurance model - usage-based insurance ("UBI") - offers possibilities for insurers to do more efficient market segmentation and accurate risk assessment and pricing. Insurers require an IoT solution for the purpose of data collection and performance analysis
Smooth Transition to Energy Savings
The building was equipped with four end-of-life Trane water cooled chillers, located in the basement. Johnson Controls installed four York water cooled centrifugal chillers with unit mounted variable speed drives and a total installed cooling capacity of 6,8 MW. Each chiller has a capacity of 1,6 MW (variable to 1.9MW depending upon condenser water temperatures). Johnson Controls needed to design the equipment in such way that it would fit the dimensional constraints of the existing plant area and plant access route but also the specific performance requirements of the client. Morgan Stanley required the chiller plant to match the building load profile, turn down to match the low load requirement when needed and provide an improvement in the Energy Efficiency Ratio across the entire operating range. Other requirements were a reduction in the chiller noise level to improve the working environment in the plant room and a wide operating envelope coupled with intelligent controls to allow possible variation in both flow rate and temperature. The latter was needed to leverage increased capacity from a reduced number of machines during the different installation phases and allow future enhancement to a variable primary flow system.
Automated Pallet Labeling Solution for SPR Packaging
SPR Packaging, an American supplier of packaging solutions, was in search of an automated pallet labeling solution that could meet their immediate and future needs. They aimed to equip their lines with automatic printer applicators, but also required a solution that could interface with their accounting software. The challenge was to find a system that could read a 2D code on pallets at the stretch wrapper, track the pallet, and flag any pallets with unread barcodes for inspection. The pallets could be single or double stacked, and the system needed to be able to differentiate between the two. SPR Packaging sought a system integrator with extensive experience in advanced printing and tracking solutions to provide a complete traceability system.
Transforming insurance pricing while improving driver safety
The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the car insurance industry on a scale not seen since the introduction of the car itself. For decades, premiums have been calculated using proxy-based risk assessment models and historical data. Today, a growing number of innovative companies such as Quebec-based Industrielle Alliance are moving to usage-based insurance (UBI) models, driven by the advancement of telematics technologies and smart tracking devices.
MasterCard Improves Customer Experience Through Self-Service Data Prep
Derek Madison, Leader of Business Financial Support at MasterCard, oversees the validation of transactions and cash between two systems, whether they’re MasterCard owned or not. He was charged with identifying new ways to increase efficiency and improve MasterCard processes. At the outset, the 13-person team had to manually reconcile system interfaces using reports that resided on the company’s mainframe. Their first order of business each day was to print 20-30 individual, multi-page reports. Using a ruler to keep their place within each report, they would then hand-key the relevant data, line by line, into Excel for validation. “We’re talking about a task that took 40-80 hours each week,” recalls Madison, “As a growing company with rapidly expanding product offerings, we had to find a better way to prepare this data for analysis.”
