Staying connected

RDT is a company committed to innovation and research and development, which leads to technical advances and business benefits that we pass on to our insurance clients.

That’s why we employ software engineers who have a creative energy and an aptitude for learning – key attributes that enhance our reputation as a technology leader. It’s also why we embrace the latest technology developments and attend and participate in relevant technology conferences and seminars. In particular, as a Microsoft Gold Partner for many years, we are supporters of the annual Microsoft Global TechEd Conference. (more…)

Rapidly expanding technology company RDT has announced two major appointments to help drive its growth


The insurance software provider, which has nearly doubled in size in the past year, has hired Rob Grigg and Michael Boucher as part of its expansion programme.

Grigg joins RDT as Chief Technical Officer after two years as Head of Architecture at ASOS, the UK’s largest independent online fashion and beauty retailer. Grigg is an authority on Agile software development, a methodology where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration in cross-functional teams, thus promoting the early delivery of fully-functioning software. His knowledge of Agile will help consolidate RDT’s recent implementation of this progressive way of working. Commenting on his new position, Grigg said:

“RDT is entrepreneurial and has a strong culture of continuous improvement. It is a creative and innovative workplace with a very bright and motivated team, so I’m delighted to be playing a part in RDT’s future growth.”


RDT adopted Agile methodology in 2012, and this year the company moved to a bigger HQ, in West Malling. The new office has team areas and plenty of informal meeting spaces to support the collaborative work style that is fundamental to Agile practices. (more…)
