ChargedRV is a new start-up which works with insurers and brokers to provide replacement electric vehicles for policy holders with cover following an accident. With a shortage of electric vehicles available to hire, ChargedRV provides a pool of electric vehicles to ensure a replacement electric vehicle is available whenever it is needed.
Bespoke administration portal for replacement vehicle service
With a marketing website in the final stage of development, ChargedRV approached Naked Creativity to develop an administration portal to manage the replacement vehicle service online. Naked’s team worked closely with the client to create a long-term development strategy which was budget sensitive, flexible and scalable to support their phased plan for business development. The solution meant building a basic bespoke system initially, which could be easily upgraded to include more sophisticated features in the future as the company developed new services.
Naked’s technical team developed the portal using the MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express, Angular and NodeJS). This technology powered a fully searchable job database with downloadable reports for analysis and client billing. As well as this, the portal included a clear user interface which enabled staff to manage all elements of a job, from recording customer details and car requirements, to geographical location to assist the sourcing of a replacement electric vehicle. The system also included a full audit history to show job updates.
Initially the portal will rely on the manual input of data, but the next phase of the project will be to automate areas of the portal, particularly in taking instructions from insurance clients and automating billing using integrations with Xero.
In addition to designing and developing the portal, Naked’s graphic design team created a new identity for ChargedRV. Working with the client’s initial ideas, the team transformed these into a cohesive brand identity with a refined logo. The client is delighted with both the portal and design work, particularly as the whole project was completed in just four weeks. With such a positive outcome, the relationship will be continuing into the future with Naked supporting the next phase of development.
From start to finish I was impressed with Naked Creativity, their transparency and the way they developed a budget-sensitive solution to meet the long term goals of our business. I found Jordan very knowledgeable and accessible, in fact the whole collaborative style of working was a highlight.
