Delta Financial Systems provides market-leading pension administration technology for the self-invested pensions of the UK's lifetime savings market.
With an unrivalled 25-year track record of maintaining its solutions against a backcloth of continuous legislative and regulatory change, Delta delivers functionally-rich capabilities to manage complex assets and deliver straight-through processing with other mission-critical systems - particularly in terms of investments and payment processing.
Delta is committed to developing the next generation of talent, having been named Microsoft Apprentice Employer of the Year in 2012 and 2016, and is sponsoring the Innovation in Education Award at the 2021 West Midlands Tech Awards.
The company has a training and development policy that is embedded in its culture, ensuring that each employee can spend two or three days per quarter on training and development activities, which are monitored through a robust system to ensure every employee has the opportunity to learn.
This policy has been well received by all teams, with several employees across the business having progressed to further their studies, completing level 5 and 6 diplomas, degrees and masters degrees with support from Delta.
Currently, the company is in the process of introducing a graduate intern and recruitment programme, acknowledging the fact the West Midlands tech industry is growing at pace, with Delta at the heart and offering support to those who want to pursue a career in this exciting sector.
Over the last five years, a key component of Delta's digital transformation strategy has been to radically overhaul how it works to become a true agile software factory that has embraced best practices including:
Optimised development teams (developers, test developers and SMEs)
Acceptance criteria based user stories
Automated testing (96,000+ tests)
Formal ceremonies including cleansing, sizing, scrum of scrums and retrospectives
Continuous integration and deployment
Delta's longevity and confidence to deliver fit-for-purpose solutions for the next 25 years is driven by its ideology, based on core values of knowledge, excellence, reliability and empathy.
