The First American Title Insurance Company of Australia (First Title) protects real estate transactions for Australian property lenders and owners. The company had built a proprietary insurance-product ordering system for its first Australian corporate client, but had to keep modifying it to accommodate subsequent customers. In 2007, the company decided to build a new web-based application from the ground up. It turned to Microsoft for help, adopting a range of development technologies including the Microsoft .NET Framework and Microsoft SQL Server. By incorporating each Microsoft product upgrade, First Title built a highly stable and reliable platform. It has saved on operational costs, including real-time processing and reporting, and improved risk management.
