Mendix World Diamond Sponsor Spotlight: First Technology Talks Digital Transformation

Mendix World Diamond Sponsor Spotlight: First Technology Talks Digital Transformation by Maria DiCesare

“Companies come to us because they either want to become more digital, or they want to improve their processes and operations,” says André van Teeseling, partner and leader of the Mendix practice at First Technology. “Low-code and Mendix, for us, is the solution.”

As a long-time Mendix partner and Diamond Sponsor for Mendix World 2021, First Technologyhelps businesses digitally transform through the power of low-code development. We’re so excited that the First Technology team will be sharing their expertise and customer stories with attendees at this year’s virtual event. Without further ado, meet First Technology and get the stories behind their five Mendix World sessions.

Who is First Technology?

Founded in the Netherlands in 2006, First Technology provides data, technology, and consulting services for European businesses in industries such as insurance, finance, retail, logistics, and government. Their clients are typically facing challenges in various stages of digital transformation, with many needing to optimize and automate business processes — tasks where low-code development excels.

Low-code is an integral part of First Technology’s solutions portfolio. The company now has over 80 Mendix developers and consultants throughout the Netherlands and the UK, and is in the process of building a new team in Croatia.

Van Teeseling and his team have attended Mendix World since 2014, but this year marks a special occasion. In 2021, First Technology completed a merger with Valcon, a Scandinavian strategy and operations consulting group, and both companies will join forces at this year’s event.

Digitalizing underwriting and claims management with MS Amlin 

Insurance is one of the many industries where digitalization is in high demand. To better connect customers and brokers, MS Amlin, a ​​UK-based insurance provider, enlisted First Technology to build a new low-code solution for the underwriting and claims processes.

With Mendix, Van Teeseling and his team developed a solution for brokers, underwriters, and claim handlers to access product information, obtain real-time quotes, submit new claims, and manage policy adjustments. “The solution at MS Amlin is one of the biggest and most advanced solutions I have seen and built with Mendix so far,” says Van Teeseling.

From a monolithic to microservices application architecture with NCOI

NCOI is the leading provider of professional training and education in the Netherlands. Needing to modernize their existing legacy system, the company worked with First Technology to digitally transform from a monolith high-code solution to microservices using low-code.
