Welcome to MoneySavingExpert Credit Club

Software Engineering experts ‘Cake Solutions’ have been working in close partnership with MoneySuperMarket.com for over five years, and the MoneySavingExpert’s Credit Club is the latest product to be successfully delivered, developed, tested and deployed by Cake’s engineering team in Manchester.

 

A Brand New Platform

MoneySavingExpert (part of the MoneySuperMarket Financial Group), accounts for 20% of the group's revenue. When MoneySuperMarket decided on building a new platform for growth (one of their biggest undertakings in 2016),  they knew who to come to. Cake Solutions have taken the project by its horns, and were able to provide the technical expertise and project delivery experience needed to deliver on the project.

A fantastic achievement in delivering this. There is a vast amount of information and this is the beginning of an incredibly powerful tool to help our users take more control of their financial status. Well done and thank you to everybody who made this possible.

From POC to MVP

The public beta of the Credit Club was launched in July 2016 after 4 months of building a proof of concept (POC) and then delivering the MVP using the tried and tested Cake Delivery Process. The platform and application was architected and built across multiple sites including Ewloe, London, Nottingham and Manchester. A true example of remote, blended, polyglot teams working together.

Credit Club is a web-based and mobile-responsive way to get credit scores, MoneySuperMarket’s Credit Hit Score, tips to boost your score, and eligibility for financial products - for free. Credit Club was one of the first Credit Report offerings to the market and the Credit Hit Score remains a unique way to clearly see how your credit chances are improving over time.

 

A Truly Reactive Experience

Written using modern web standards and tools including AngularJS and a Java 8 RESTful framework, the Credit Club leverages NoSQL databases and a micro-services architecture. The application is fully secure and has been independently audited, communicating with several internal and third-party services to deliver a fully reactive experience.

  • MVP defined and delivered in eight weeks
  • Project managing over 30 team members across 4 sites
  • Quick release pipeline where new features are launched in days
  • Microservices design with built in responsive and elastic architecture

‘The user feedback received is that it is quick, easy and user friendly to request and the report layout is great to navigate. Superb job – thank you.’ – Julie Fisher – Chief Operating Officer Credit Club
