Reimagining benefits administration system while improving UX

Global corporate payment solutions provider

An online benefits administration system was dated and urgently needed a refresh to address new required features and an improved user experience. The project was behind and open enrollment dates loomed near. They desired to roll out new features and updates incrementally so that they could address immediate needs without waiting to rewrite the entire massive application at once.


Angular 15


They had already heavily invested in a new design system based on Angular 15 when theylearned that Angular 15 was not compatible with their existing code base. Due to resource limitations,they sought York as a reliable partner capable of delivering the entire project and deliver by thedeadline.

Ensuring Compatibility Through a Proactive Proof-of-Concept

Proof of Concept Verifies Predictable Outcome York quickly offered a solution to the compatibilityproblem and assigned an internal technical team to create a proof-of-concept application to verify thetechnique before the statement of work was even written. York was entrusted with UI consulting,software development, project management, and quality assurance responsibilities. To get movingquickly York agreed to a fixed price for the immediate deliverables within the tight time window eventhough there were still some unknown issues.

applications using the customer’s new design system. The customer reported that York’s team came
up to speed and delivered high quality more quickly than any other team they had ever encountered.
