Title Insurer Saves A$86,000 Per Year With Online Order Processing
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.
