We were approached by the Wealth Management division of ANZ Australia to develop a calculator illustrating how insurance fees would be changing for members from the 1st of July 2020. They required a calculator to be in production on their servers by April to meet regulatory requirements.
In just a week we had: developed a spreadsheet prototype for the calculator, built the UI and calculation engine for the tool, developed a UI design for the display of results, set up automated testing between the tool and spreadsheet to validate results, performed internal QA, transformed and imported the client-supplied data, and provided the client with their UAT environment. All whilst still adjusting to our new working from home arrangements due to COVID-19.
GBST and Athena teams took an iterative approach to deliver a unique tool combining eight of our calculator engines.
The custom calculator allows users to experiment with home loan hypotheticals and integrates Athena’s Home Loan Hacks; customers can see how extra repayments, repayment frequency and loan terms impact their mortgage and how much they could save by switching to an Athena home loan.
Customers who use the calculator before they apply are 2.5 times more likely to sign up as an Athena customer than an applicant who hasn’t run their numbers.
ANZ New Zealand asked GBST to build a calculator that will allow their customers to determine how much money they would need for the retirement lifestyle they wanted. KiwiSaver’s Account Calculator helps you to work out whether you’re on track to achieving your retirement savings goals.
By inputting details around your current superannuation position and desired retirement goal, it gives you your expected result at retirement and whether you will have a contributions surplus or gap based on your desired retirement goal.
Equity Builder is a NAB product that offers investors a simple way to borrow for investment in shares. NAB engaged GBST to design and develop an Investment Calculator to reflect their Equity Builder product and simulate the monthly repayment obligations for different combinations of loan size and term, whether you decide to choose a Straight Line Method (SLM), Home Loan Method (HLM) or both.
CUA wanted to provide users a quick way to estimate how much they could borrow and what their home loan repayments would look like without redirecting them from the home loan landing page.
Taking into consideration design, layout and UX, we developed cut down versions of the Home Loan Repayments and Borrowing Power Calculators to be easily embedded within the home loan landing page. They give a user a high level estimate on how much they can borrow and their expected monthly repayments.
The University of Queensland’s Institute of Continuing & TESOL Education (UQ ICTE) Department asked GBST to develop a Course Fees Calculator to allow prospective students to obtain an estimated cost for their courses, course materials and accommodation.
The calculator allows you to email or print your results, as well as apply directly for the course you have selected. To cater for international students, you can change between currencies, with the latest currency rates provided via a web service API.
