The Business Awards is an Iconic Australian brand built around recognising the achievements of Australian businesses. In 2014, Black Nova Digital was approached to redesign and redevelop the entire organisation's Enterprise Management System (EMS).
In addition to this powerful business tool, The Business Awards also required an online Digital Experience for its front facing users. This included businesses, voters and sponsors who interact with the Awards themselves online through various devices.
This necessitated an extremely fluid, well designed Digital Experience that integrated all the functionality of the enterprise management system, but now for users. The system would allow those businesses, voters and sponsors to be able to login, access and edit their personal, business and sponsor information as well as now obtain votes online through various social media platforms.
"Black Nova Digital continually exceeded our expectations when it came to understanding and simplifying the way we do business."
- Steve Loe, Director, Precedent Productions.
Because of the unique nature of the Business Awards, Black Nova Digital had to plan an extremely dynamic platform that could adjust accordingly to the requirements of a specific awards program. This required powerful database driven architecture and an administration panel designed to be extremely simple to use for a range of different age groups.
The new Business Awards website was designed to be striking in it's appearance while allowing for easy accessibility to the most common functionality. Since it's inception, the Business Awards Digital Experience has been praised unanimously for it's improved design and functionality.
NEP approached Black Nova to design and develop an Android NFC Application for use by field technicians and maintenance staff for that would allow for the digital tracking and labeling of cables and equipment. The Android Application was developed to allow NFC Reading, NFC Writing, Information Storage and Email Integration functionality utilising portable NFC tags, while also conforming to NEP's interface design standards.
"Black Nova designed and developed a mobile application to cater for our increasing workforce and workload. Within 3 months we had the first version of the app deployed to our workforce and haven't looked back since."
- Robert Clemson, NEP Inc.
NEP's app was an evolution of one of their business processes and led to an increase in field efficiency. Black Nova took into account the need to increase efficiency and simplicity when designing the look, feel and experience of the app which led to a user friendly and business process focused product.
Indue provides customised financial payment products and settlement services in a collaborative relationship with their clients. There is a high value placed on the client's experience, and that required a well designed and effective prepaid card web interface.
"We called Black Nova Digital because we needed something done and it we needed it "yesterday". They are an agency that truly go above and beyond when it comes to client satisfaction."
- Matt Adney, Indue
Indue's focus is on melding services and software to provide a unique combination of customer benefits, so when they undertook the development of their own proprietary Online Debit Card System to integrate with its established banking platform, Black Nova Digital was approached to design and develop the user interface and customer experience.
Black Nova worked in conjunction with Indue and integrated the design with Indue's new and existing business processes to develop the required outcome. The final design has now been rolled out into several high profile banking organisations around the world for prepaid debit card solutions.
