the challenge

Creditplus’s philosophy of bringing technology and traditional processes together provided them with the vision of creating an impartial car finance platform. Their concept for the platform was to provide consumers with all the information they need to select a car finance package after comparing the best deals available to them, along with clear and impartial information on each deal, putting the power back in the customer's hand.

As an established business Creditplus have strong relationships with a variety of lenders, they also have an award-winning set of process in place, that if implemented effectively into their new solution would provide consumers with a superior experience.

With such powerful tools available the key challenges were to have the variety of systems and process combine into a system that effectively communicated between all the systems whilst providing an intuitive, fast and informative view for the consumers.

Creditplus needed a development partner that understood their vision and had the technical ability to integrate the variety of systems and API’s together.

the solution

Creditplus selected Cold Banana Studio because of our experience creating robust .NET API’s.

Following our selection as Creditplus’s development partner of choice, we sat with Creditplus and a variety of key stakeholders to scope the project further. This key step in the process ensures that we are all working towards the same goal and provides the platform to develop the best solution. During this scoping process, it became clear that to deliver the best solution for this new platform it would need to be built as a SPA (Single Page Application).

Creditplus agreed that providing all consumers with a SPA would indeed be the best way to deliver a fast, responsive and intuitive experience. This was achieved by developing the application within VueJS and building it on .NET. Developing this solution on .NET meant that we can have different API’s communicate with each other to deliver the information needed by consumers.

In addition to creating the SPA, we also had to develop a finance calculator API that would work alongside their existing car finder API to ensure that the output from an application journey provided the user with a complete view of the various options available to them. Which resulted in the Compare Car Finance site which has been a great success.
