The Australian business was established in Melbourne in 2003, primarily engaged with Medibank Private to replace its core claims processing system with PBT’s proprietary iMed solution. With an 8-year ongoing engagement at Medibank, PBT Australia has a proven track record, with demonstrable IP and experience in providing specialized transaction processing and business intelligence solutions across a variety of technologies.
With the appointment of Daniel Tour as its Australian CEO in 2012, the company has consolidated its Australian presence and is now looking to expand its service offerings and key product lines for the Australian marketplace. Through collaboration with other IT companies and specialised business partners, along with the strategic development of PBT’s i2 business solutions platform, the company is now able to offer solutions into the broad base of industries beyond health insurance.
The Group is excited to announce that it recently acquired a majority shareholding in the ProgressClaim.com application, which is used by construction companies to manage the division of work, payments, partial payments and variations between owners, contractors and subcontractors on multi-vendor development projects.
