A Breakdown of Pinnacle Transportation Clients

Chief Technology Officer

CTO’s juggle a challenging ever shifting landscape, where improved digital business assurance is of paramount importance to managing risk, quality, cost and speed of delivering IT Change. There is ever increasing pressure to see successful implementation and adoption of digital systems, without negative local or national press. CTO’s and their budgets are under the spotlight, as demand for “complex integrated digital” services increases to be critical to the success of delivering a best in class modern customer centric experience in seamless transportation services.

Continuous change and rapid implementation and integration of complex legacy and new transportation platforms continually increase the risk of impacting key business functions. Impacts include an increasing risk of production failures from defect leakage, and business teams being taken away from their own critical job roles to support IT change projects.

Pinnacle consultancy and services enable CTO’s and their IT teams to directly address these challenges and enable effective and scalable quality transportation transformation at speed without increasing production risk. Pinnacle do this by leveraging our international industry experience, providing our leading expertise, innovation and solutions, to allow transportation IT and business teams to achieve better digital outcomes.

IT project teams within digital transportation programs are at the forefront of needing to implement and deliver successful quality program outcomes.

Pinnacle work with IT project teams to support and enable successful delivery of their digital modernisation and transformation programs.

Testimonial details…/> “we focus on ensuring the general public are able to successfully and confidently use the public transportation network. We want ALL of the public to enjoy a usable, performant and seamless experience anywhere on the network. Our systems are using the latest industry technologies and integrations to deliver digital services to the traveling public, although as a business team we are not technical. We used to spend lots of our time on IT projects. Since working with Pinnacle my whole team has more time to focus on our jobs, the public user experience and the acceptance of change without all the effort to support IT. Now use Authorise to automate much of our UAT testing, along with business processes and reporting. Best of all, as business users we can understand and build our own automation to have virtual workers run activities for us. I am happy they that work all day and all night on supporting IT projects so I no longer have to”

Manager of Customer Experience
Testimonial details…/> “I have know a number of the team at Pinnacle for many years, from delivery of transportation programs in Australia and Europe. We have recently engaged Pinnacle for some consultancy here that focused on trouble shooting and improving our current delivery. They helped us to target and close out over 80% of our current defects in the upcoming project releases and with in production. Resolving our technical backlog issues was a problem for us for a long time, and Pinnacle completed the outcome in just 2 releases. The cost of the defects we were carrying was significant, incurring contractual financial penalties. Working with the Pinnacle team meant that we are now no longer incurring production financial penalties, and the savings made in just the last 2 months have more than covered the engagement costs many times over. We will continue using their automation services, as they continue to provide me with savings in this and other parts of my business”
