Godel chosen as software development partner by major British multi-channel retailer, Boden

Godel, a leading agile software development company, has today announced its latest exciting Retail client win, successfully being chosen as a strategic software development partner by major British multichannel Retailer, Boden.

Founded in 1991, Boden, with a focus and strong passion for supply of ethical goods, employs over 800 members of staff and sources products from 160 suppliers worldwide.  Boden ships 12,500 parcels per day to clients globally.

With online Retail sales growth increasing competition for customers is becoming increasingly competitive. Retailers face constant pressures to be able to deliver the right products but also to deliver an outstanding shopping experience. With this comes huge demand on the technology division of these Retailers to be ahead of the game and define a competitive edge.

After receiving a referral about the quality of work delivered by Godel from a member of his team, David Petronzio, IT Development Manager at Boden invited Godel to discuss how its services could increase the capability to meet these challenges.

‘We wanted a partner who had the same no nonsense approach to software development as ourselves. The aim was to be able to add talented resources to our team to keep up with the demands of the business whilst not compromising on the quality of our delivery. A tall order I know, given the strength of our own team, but given Godel’s reputation, and based on the signs so far, they seem to be up to it.” explained David.

Godel’s extended software development team have visited our HQ in London to learn about us and the project. This allowed them to build up their knowledge of the systems and our processes and has also allowed our in-house team to build their relationship with their new team members which we believe is an important factor to ensure a successful partnership.”

James Blake, Sales Director at Godel talked of the company’s delight in announcing the commencement of the partnership,

“We are excited to be working with Boden. They are an impressive Retail brand with an extremely talented team. Working with online businesses that are fast paced and work in an agile manner is a sweet spot for Godel. This agreement is a reflection of that capability.”

Recent client wins for Godel include: Laterooms.com, Mitie Group, Tesco, NetNames, CACI, Earthport plc, Grafton plc, SIG plc and many more.

Nearshoring agile development is becoming the prefered method for sourcing hard-to-find technology expertise for company’s in the UK. Belarus provides a two hour time difference, staff who speak fluent English and have a hungry ethos to work with English companies whilst being excellent problem solvers and talented software engineers.
