    Tan Shen Zhe emerged as this year’s award recipient, celebrated for his groundbreaking contributions that have propelled JurisTech to new heights. Shen’s innovative approach to workflow optimisation, particularly his acceleration of the ClickUp card creation process, has significantly enhanced our overall response efficiency. His achievement, particularly noteworthy as he has self-taught software engineering in addition to his role as a Business Analyst, serves as an inspiring example to aspiring innovators within JurisTech and iMoney.

    Previously, the manual review of tickets generated by our ticketing system and the creation of corresponding ClickUp cards by JurisTech’s Business Analysts were necessary. Shen’s implementation has streamlined this process, reducing wait times for SEs and idle time between ticket receipt and ClickUp card creation. This optimisation has not only enhanced overall response efficiency but also allowed product teams to allocate more time to strategic Business Unit activities, thereby improving accuracy and reliability in managing and responding to customer tickets.
