Allstate Northern Ireland, the new name for Northbrook Technology, was established in Belfast in 1998 and provides high quality software development services and business process outsourcing solutions in support of its U.S. parent's global operations.
Allstate NI plays a strategic role in developing, transforming and maintaining the various technology platforms used within Allstate, to support it in its day to day business, looking after the different systems that you might expect one of the world's largest insurance giants to run.
Allstate Northern Ireland started recruiting in January 1999 and established its first office in Belfast's Corporation Street. The company quickly outgrew that location and moved to its current building at Lanyon Place in February 2002. For strategic reasons, including a large labour pool and growing demand for services, Allstate NI opened a second facility in Derry in August 2001, followed by its Strabane location in June 2004. Currently, the company employs more than 1900 people in these facilities.
Allstate Northern Ireland is focused on delivering the highest quality customer service to Allstate and has a proven track record of delivering on-time, high quality information technology and business process outsourcing solutions at a globally competitive price. The development environment is IBM mainframe/midrange/PC with all the associated technologies. Allstate NI is committed to software process improvement and in October 2007 achieved CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) Level 3. The commitment is highlighted by the formation of a Business Process Group to help develop better practices and to oversee quality assurance and verification.
Allstate Northern Ireland is committed to helping promote IT within the province with alliances with a number of bodies such as Momentum - the Northern Ireland ICT Federation, Northern Ireland's Centre for Competitiveness, Invest Northern Ireland, the British Computer Society and both of the universities in Northern Ireland, Queen's University Belfast and the University of Ulster.
