The Client

Computershare is a global entity with presence in over 20+ countries and primarily provides stock registration and transfer services to companies listed on stock markets, but also offers technology services for stock exchanges, investor services for shareholders and employee share plan management. They have over 16,000 employees globally and over 16,000 clients.

The Need

Computershare acquired Datacare Software Group in 2007 for it’s governance related software products, GEMS and Boardworks. While they initially tried to enhance and continue to develop the product internally, they decided to outsource it to SpurTree over a period of time.  The primary need was to modernize the product and build out mobile versions of the product on the iPad, Windows Surface and Android tablets for use while on the move.

SpurTree has a 15 member dedicated team for the past 5 years and continue to develop new features and maintain the entire product suite for Boardworks. This includes 4 different streams, viz. iPad, Windows Surface, Android tablets and the web portal.

The mobile application was built using Xamarin technologies. Xamarin was chosen as it gave us the ability to build a single code base multiple platform approach. Also the ability to provide a near native UI experience with no limitations to features such as offline capabilities, data sync processes was much needed. Xamarin provided a set of enterprise tools for distribution, testing and verification that ensured an enterprise quality product was delivered into the hands of CxOs across the world.
