HSL's mission is to provide top-notch public transport. Their priorities are ensuring an excellent customer experience, an efficient network, foresight and renewal, active cooperation, and efficient finances. The Jore registry is essential for HSL’s strategy as it functions as the master database that serves multiple other operations and functions. For example, Jore transfers data to other systems like the HSL app which is widely used by end users for journey planning and ticket purchasing. The registry is also used for contract management and compensation calculation.
The current version of Jore dates back to the 1970s. An update of the system, called Jore4, was needed to reduce data integrity problems in the system, streamline processes, facilitate workflows, and reduce errors caused by manual work.
The collaboration between Vincit and HSL is based on transparency, shared goals, and an agile mindset. The goal has been to focus on the end-user experience, maximizing the compatibility of the system, and implementing an agile working model. Having chosen us as their partner for digital acceleration, HSL gets all the competencies required for this huge undertaking from one team while still enjoying an agile way of working.
The project requires complex problem-solving which, in turn, calls for a variety of competencies from the Vincit team. At the same time, the agile project model makes it possible to change direction and implement customer needs on short notice. Throughout the project, we’ve worked closely with HSL to ensure the success of the Jore4 registry update.
