Case Study by Nukomeet  ·  09/2012

The SOCOTEC Group is a leading player in testing, inspection and certification (TIC). SOCOTEC ensure the integrity and performance of assets and people’s safety, helping clients around the world manage risk and improve performance throughout their projects’ lifecycles.

Project background

Benefits For You is a Swiss startup that aims to digitize benefits („tickets restaurants”). Instead of using paper, employers can simply manage their employees benefits from a web interface. The employees have credit cards that are automatically loaded by the system. The web application made by Nukomeet is the core process as it interfaces between the bank, the employer, the employee and Benefits For You team.

Our involvement

The role of Nukomeet was to define the architecture and build of the application from the scratch. Through consulting with the client, we defined the needs and established detailed architecture that was used as a roadmap during development.

Services we have provided

Mobile
API

Technologies

We used Node.js, CoffeeScript, Socket.io, jQueryMobile.

Node.js

Node.js

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code server-side. Historically, JavaScript was used primarily for client-side scripting, in which scripts written in JavaScript are embedded in a webpage's HTML and run client-side by a JavaScript engine in the user's web browser.

CoffeeScript

CoffeeScript

CoffeeScript is a programming language that compiles into JavaScript. It adds syntactic sugar inspired by Ruby, Python and Haskell in an effort to enhance JavaScript's brevity and readability.

Socket.io

Socket.io

Socket.io is a programming language that compiles into JavaScript. It adds syntactic sugar inspired by Ruby, Python and Haskell in an effort to enhance JavaScript's brevity and readability.

MongoDB

MongoDB

MongoDB NoSQL database. It uses JSON-like documents with schemas.

Impact

The impact of our work was to allow the client to start his business on a sound basis with a solid application built with up to date technologies for the long term. The application allowed the client to automate most of his business processes (managing credit cards, invoicing…) from day 1.
