Challenge

A website aiming to help motorists find attractive deals on new and used cars, car lease, insurance, loans, warranties and much more with just a few clicks has to constantly improve user experience and embrace mobile technology amid growing competition. The client asked our team to expand the website’s functionality, modernize its interface and provide advice on whether it should choose native or cross-platform development for its future mobile apps.

We took on the following challenges:
Make the client’s web app more functional by adding many new features and ensure easy navigation between pages.
Pick the proper tech stack for frontend and backend development.
Describe the pros and cons of native app development and cross-platform frameworks, and help the client choose the right tools for building Android and iOS apps.
Implement testing on desktop and mobile browsers.

Solution

New website sections, including the Social Value and Media pages, that provide more information to visitors and result in greater user satisfaction
Integrated APIs enabling website users to get instant quotes from Car.co.uk partners for motor insurance and car warranties, book vehicle inspections, apply for car loans, get an instant scrap quote, arrange a car collection and get paid for their scrap car
A car finance calculator feature that lets users instantly learn the monthly cost of a specific car loan
A car valuation feature relying on an API integration that allows users to learn how much their vehicle is worth by simply entering its registration number and mileage
An API integration with the Zoho CRM system to process car scrap requests
My Account section where a user’s documents, quotes and purchases are stored in one place
Improvements to the ReactJS frontend code for boosting website speed

Impact

The website’s extended functionality makes it a one-stop shop for motorists who want to quickly find and book a wide range of services in their vicinity, get instant quotes and free car valuations, get paid for their scrap cars, buy insurance, apply for car loans, etc.
The project helped Car.co.uk cement its position as one of the UK’s leading providers of services to car owners
After consulting our team, Car.co.uk decided to choose React Native for developing mobile apps for Android and iOS
