Compare the Market

Comparethemarket.com and Godel win two awards at the national Real IT Award 2019.

Comparethemarket.com and nearshore software development partner, Godel won in two categories at last night’s national Real IT Awards 2019. The combined team won Partnership of the Year and Agile Project of the Year for their work in growing the comparison site’s capabilities whilst migrating its products to its modernised Comparison as a Service (CaaS) tech platform.

The judges heard how closely the companies work together in partnership across teams, geographies and time zones to deliver an online experience for customers to compare across insurance and other financial services products and services.

“At the outset we had two clear objectives for our partnership with Godel – the first was that there should be no discernible difference between a team based in the UK and a team in its centre of excellence in Belarus – both should be totally committed to delivering slick, user-friendly software to make comparison simple for comparethemarket.com’s customers,” explains Paula Giacchino, senior manager, nearshore operations, comparethemarket.com.

“The second was that we wanted a transparent and honest relationship with Godel – not a standard supplier relationship. Over the past two years, the partnership has grown enormously in terms of headcount and strategic significance within both businesses – and it will continue to scale.

“Our success has been achieved by monumental amounts of hard work from dozens of stakeholders from comparethemarket.com and Godel and these awards are a wonderful icing-on-the-cake recognition of that.”

Neil McMurdo, managing director of Godel said: “It’s always great to be recognised in your industry for the work you do from a technical perspective, but the win goes much further as it demonstrates how seamlessly our organistions work together on a daily basis to deliver the best product possible for comparethemarket.com and its customers – huge congratulations to the team.”
