At Saga, a joint development team of Mendix, Saga and Mendix Solutions has been able to collaborate with key stakeholders to ensure applications closely match the business requirements. The visual development environment and agile project management capabilities empower small, cross-functional teams to build applications in short, iterative cycles together with end users. The result is faster time to market and greater business agility, which means that organisations can better capitalise on new opportunities.
With development taking just 12 weeks, around half the time of using other technologies, the application allows nurses, health care professionals and back-office staff to interact with Saga online.
The next phase of the project will provide patients and their families with access to key information via an online portal, which is being delivered by Saga’s own teams.
The application has allowed Saga to enter a new market very quickly, enabling the company to respond to rapidly changing demands and opportunities. The Mendix platform has also enabled the business to be self-sufficient.
