Using a variety of leading-edge cloud technologies to help an innovative employee benefits provider
Challenge: Neyber needed to design and develop a multi-service, user-friendly, and resilient platform offering financial instruments and an application for taking loans as a form of an employee benefit.
Approach: We provided both technical and business expertise, recommended solutions, and ensured compliance and security of the platform. Thanks to our hand-on approach, we ultimately became a long-term, trustworthy partner.

About the client
Neyber has been included in KPMG’s list of the top 100 fintech companies, recognised as Ethical Financial Services Provider of the Year at the Money Age Awards.
Neyber, an award-winning fintech, partners with employers to support their workforce’s financial wellbeing with access to financial education, savings and affordable, salary-deducted loans – all at no cost or risk to the employer.
The company became the first alternative lender to be accredited by the Lending Standards Board and has also been recognised as one of the top 50 most disruptive companies in the UK by Real Business and won “Benefits Innovation of the Year”, at the Workplace Savings and Benefits Awards.
In July 2017 Neyber was looking for a partner with the competencies necessary to increase the development capacity and speed up the rollout of their products using a variety of leading-edge cloud-based technologies.
We were able to show operational agility by scaling the team up and down, depending on Neyber’s changing business requirements. First as a team of five, we reached over 20 people working on three different projects. Once the first milestones were achieved, we smoothly scaled-down, wrapping ourselves around our client’s needs.

Solution we delivered
We are proud to be working with Neyber because our organisations are truly aligned – both our companies aim to create solutions that empower people and make a positive contribution to human life.
This was seen in the project which was a portal aimed to improve financial awareness and educate people on how to manage their money better. It allows access to guides with tips on how to be better-off and tools such as an easy-to-use savings calculator, built to give a clear picture of one’s finances.
Beyond software development
We proved our technical expertise by helping with Business Analysis and proactively agreeing on the requirements, trying to find the best answer to address Neyber’s business challenges.
We also shared our knowledge, recommended solutions and helped with Neyber’s innovative software by verifying the business value of new technologies, such as a Proof of Concept with Machine Learning.
Building a long-lasting relationship, it was necessary for us to become a self-organising team that required the minimum need for client management, following a mature development process based on ‘inspect and adapt’.
Compliance and security are very important to Neyber as a regulated business therefore, in addition to software development, our Security Team conducted a series of Penetration Tests.
