What we've done for them

Calendar Options

The CEO of KPMG required an A3 excel spreadsheet that represented his yearly calendar. The data for this calendar is imported from a complex XML appointment file.

  • The XML input file was derived from a vendor application which was used to book appointments
  • The solution was developed using VSTO

Global Desktop Version 4 (GDV4)

The GDV4 project involved migrating the global operating system at KPMG from Windows XP to Windows Vista. This was a large-scale systems development project comprising compatibility analysis, redevelopment, implementation and support of in-house as well as vendor applications.

HR Letters

Revium was requested by KPMG to supply technical resources to make substantial changes to a large range of MS Word document templates. The templates form the basis for much of the record keeping and correspondence generation in the HR department of KPMG Australia wide.

  • The process required a knowledge of VB script and MS VBA
  • Report writing also formed an important part of the overall service delivery

QAR website

KPMG requested that Revium establish a functioning web based document management system to service internal specialist professionals. It was designed to serve as a model illustrating cutting edge software design and implementation on which the in-house development team could base future developments.

The project had four distinct components:
  • Development of the web site using contemporary technologies;
  • Documentation of the process;
  • Development of software libraries for the standardisation of future development and
  • To serve as an in-house training tool.
