Our solutions
AUTOMATION

DX Solutions supports clients with a flexible automation service, including the option of time and materials, or outcome-based engagements. This approach ensures that handover is transparent, that ongoing costs are reduced, and that Intellectual Property is retained. We can also help to upskill internal teams to self-manage automation, or can provide a managed service.

PMO FRAMEWORK

DX Solutions developed a unique PMO Solution that is light and adaptable, to help our clients reduce project clutter and overheads, and create synergies across their project portfolios.

This flexible framework supports Project Management Offices by providing the tools, templates and structure required to maximise productivity.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

With an exceptionally strong history in engineering and integration in the telecommunications industry, we pride ourselves on understanding the nuances of solutions across radio and core networks, provisioning, billing and business intelligence.

We are the only Australian supplier with the level of expertise required to provide this capability.

DX Solutions have completed some of the most significant projects in the region, including inter-operator roaming, global roaming, Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) and currently, Voice Over (voLTE).

Our work
VODAFONE

In December 2013, we began work with Vodafone on the LTE 4G mobile program.

We provided outcomes for engineering, integration, test and vendor management for the Core Evolution Program, which replaced the Nokia Siemens Core Network with the new CISCO Core Network for legacy voice and core network services. Additionally, we consolidated the network through cloud-based delivery of 2G/3G/4G mobile, Wi-Fi and fixed services. We are currently working on the Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE).

NOKIA SIEMENS NETWORK ON BEHALF AUSTRALIA GOVERNMENT

With Nokia Siemens Networks, we delivered the Federal Government Network Emergency Warning System (NEWS) solution for Vodafone and Optus.

Within our program, the networks and testing teams verified, integrated and then managed the government trials for acceptance of the network event and cube calculation system. The system warns subscribers across all mobile networks, in real-time, about potentially catastrophic events and is used heavily during the bushfire season.

WILLIAM HILL

The Sportingbet (William Hill) acquisition of TomWaterhouse.com created the need to integrate its people, processes and systems into the Sportingbet business. This included the design and development of a new responsive website.

We managed the entire program and supplemented their project team with consultants specialising in Transition Management, Test Environment Management and Test Analysis.

PERPETUAL LIMITED

In December 2013, Perpetual acquired The Trust Company and, in early 2014, the Integration project began to merge them. Two streams were introduced into the project portfolio: shared technology and business systems.

We provided Project Management services to deliver the shared technology stream. This stream was required to deliver a combined network, email, video-conferencing, storage of data and physical relocations. Currently in progress is the migration of 1,000 seats from various email platforms (including Lotus Notes and MS Exchange) to Office 365.

TOYOTA

We are responsible for quality assurance on all Toyota Finance Australia’s (TFA) major programs, as well as a large percentage of business-as-usual work, including end to end test management, integration services, and governance across the projects for Fleet Management, Finance, Call Centre, automated IVR and Customer retail lending systems that support ongoing demand for vehicle financing.

The most recent example of our success was TFA’s Collections implementation. This project involved implementing a completely new debt collection, credit reporting, defaulting and BI capacity to the finance, risk and compliance division of TFA which interfaced with existing systems, some being 15 years old.

Our key successes were:

  • Over 600 defects identified and resolved
  • Accolades from all customer stakeholders for our agility, testing expertise and professionalism, and recognition from the CEO and CIO for outstanding partner performance.
SALMAT

We provided strategy development for testing the service transition of Salmat’s data centre migration, a $375M business process outsourcing unit to Fuji Xerox, which consists of more than 80 enterprise systems and shared services.

OPTUS & VODAFONE

The Spinifex program enabled Vodafone subscribers to improve their coverage from 79 to 96% throughout Australia by roaming on the Optus network in non-coverage and rural areas.

We provided the project services for the program across requirements definition, business analysis, design and architecture, systems integration, project management, testing services, and post implementation support and activities. Additionally, we provided drive testing, customer experience and boundary testing for handover between the two carrier networks.
