The Business Need
With assets exceeding $80 billion, this State Pension System provides both pension and health care coverage health care coverage to more than 200,000 workers and beneficiaries. The Pension Systems members can purchase service years to accelerate qualification for retirement benefits. Skilled employees well versed in the business rules use a cumbersome, error prone manual process to complete these purchases with limited support form outdated legacy systems.
Centric’s High-Impact Approach
The Pension System asked Centric and its partners to develop and implement a new Transfer or Purchase System (TPS). The new system will automate back payment and early retirement incentive calculations, while greatly improving both tracking and reporting capabilities. In addition, TPS will integrate with multiple other systems.
The business tier incorporates Spring’s Dependency Injection, also known as Inversion of Control, along with Spring’s support with Hibernate (ORM Library). The integration tier uses Hibernate for persisting the Domain Model of TOPS.
TPS will provide substantial benefits to the Pension System’s customers and staff because of improvements in business processes and the use of browser based applications. Due to the dramatic reduction in manual processing, back office staff productivity has increased, and paper correspondence has greatly reduced.
