NZ Transport Agency

The New Zealand Transport Agency is responsible for the national infrastructure of New Zealand.

NZ Transport Agency’s question

NZ Transport Agency is responsible for the national security policy when it comes to infrastructure and roads. To ensure this policy, the New Zealand / Netherlands based company Tulip Consultancy developed an Excel sheet that calculates grants to contractors and projects based on regional key figures. By using monthly cycles, money is granted and prioritized. Internet by Steenkuyl was asked to convert this Excel sheet to a web based solution.

Internet by Steenkuyl’s solution

Internet by Steenkuyl built a custom solution based on the Laravel PhP framework. All the features of the Excel sheet were converted to a web-based cloud solution and is offered as a Software as a Service (SaS). Also, the application features a variety of different communication methods that are triggered by specific events, user actions and time based events. The application is easy to maintain and a lot more accessible. Data storage is centralized and processes became more transparent because of these communication methods, reporting features and forecasting methods.

Hans Steenkuyl, Owner Internet by Steenkuyl about this project:

“We worked hard on this project together with Tulip Consultancy. Tulip Consultancy worked on the complex calculations and mathematical challenges. The collaboration is great. All development is being done in the Netherlands. Most of the time, we communicate with our client by using Skype, but occasionally we get to travel to New Zealand to discuss progress and implementing deliverables. A great international project!”
