RS Components choose Godel to help engineer customer loyalty platform

RS Components (RS), part of Electrocomponents plc, has chosen Godel as its nearshore software development partner to help re-engineer its ‘My Account’ customer loyalty platform using a Java and Node.js microservices methodology. The Godel development teams will work closely with the RS in-house team on a continuous delivery approach.

My Account’s ambition is to become the global channel of choice for customers – so they can experience fully personalised journeys to connect, discover, purchase and manage their orders & relationship with RS in the simplest and fastest way.

“We chose the nearshoring model as it’s important to us that our software development partner works closely with us and delivers more than quality code. Belarus has a two-hour time difference and our teams are able to communicate via video links for daily stand-ups” said Guy Magrath, Chief Digital Officer, RS Components. “Godel will support our goal of moving from a project to product mindset, with teams embedded within the overall Product team, working collaboratively towards common goals as colleagues.”

“Many of our clients are looking for a development partner that can share best practices, help to refine processes and ultimately input into the software delivery process – Godel makes sure that it delivers software that functions seamlessly, but also meets the needs of the business,” said Paul Green, chief commercial officer, Godel.
