Work History

Intelligence Sytems Developer

DAC Beachcroft

From July 2011

As the intelligence systems developer, I am tasked with creating the technology products that stand DAC Beachcroft out from our competitiors, and streamline the efficiency of processes and identifying potential fraud within huge sets of data provided daily by various clients. DPA compliance and security of data is of paramount importance, as well as the integrity of the data that I deal with daily. I invented, designed and created (as well as use daily) an Excel and web based intelligence product that effectively identifies potential suspicious claims from a clients dataset, and ensures any new instructions received within the business is screened for potential fraud. It compares the data through secure and complex algorithms that I designed, to provide a confident match against potential suspect elements of a claim. I have also designed and project managed the dashboard MI system from creation right the way through to it's broad use as an MI tool for the clients and the DAC Beachcroft Senior Management team. As technology improves, I also look at ways of implementing new systems to improve upon what we are already doing successfully.
