BELECO • CASE STUDY
Adjusting for the future
More than 65% of the Nordic population believes that we can solve the climate crisis. But they think that there are no businesses that in an easy way make it possible for them to contribute to solving this, and that is why Beleco decided to do something about it.
Beleco is a furniture rental company that has its heart in a circular economy, “a world where you don’t own anything and in that way you’re not owned by your things.”
We joined a collaboration journey with Beleco to build a platform that through their service, makes it easier to decorate sustainable.
During our collaboration with Beleco we developed their digital platform by providing them with a team to complement their existing tech department. In order for Beleco to launch their business according to plan, we stepped in with a broad variety of tech competence. The skill sets within our team ranged from specialized frontend and backend developers, but also with project management skills.
A digital platform for sustainability – reducing emissions by enabling companies to share furniture in a user-friendly way.
We helped Beleco to move from their previous CMS-driven system to a new tailor-made microservice based system, in order to support their development in future phases.
We also helped Beleco to improve their general development processes. For example by implementing certain scrum/agile practices, making it easier and more transparent for stakeholders to provide input and track it’s progress. As well as creating a large-scale roadmap for every stakeholder to approve, in order to reach alignment within development.
Main technologies used
Express (Node) for backend development, in order to create the new microservice based architecture.
React.js was used for frontend development, in order to efficiently create intuitive user interfaces.
PHP was also used somewhat in order to move from the previous CMS-based system.
“We got even more than we expected from VNTRS, fast help to develop the platform, but at the same time not having to sacrifice quality. The only negative part was that we couldn’t steal their CTO” Sebastian Rudenstam Co-Founder and CBDO of Beleco
