01 Challenge
Smartum is an employee benefits provider for Finland, allowing people to participate in cultural events, sports activities and to visit restaurants. For many years, the Smartum system was based on printed coupons, but as the company grew, it proved to be inefficient. The company decided to invest in new, custom and scalable software.

02 Solution
The Software House crafted native iOS and Android applications for end users of Smartum (i.e. the employees) with an intuitive search system that enables easy venue browsing. We also implemented digital vouchers which allow users to forget about carrying printed coupons and a mobile payment system which makes the whole process much faster.

Meanwhile, Smartum decided to also refurbish its administration panel and asked us for help. We’ve prepared a completely new platform, based on Symfony and React, with dedicated panels for every type of user: employers, employees, venue owners, cashiers, admins and more. Everything is based on our custom white-label design system which allows new clients of Smartum to brand their company profiles in no time.

03 Effect
Both solutions – web and mobile – allowed Smartum to elevate their business. By improving the user experience on every level, the new platform resulted in an increased user base. Now, Smartum is the biggest employee benefits provider in Finland and The Software House became its strategic technological partner.

I’ve done many IT projects, and things were never this smooth. Many of the other providers we’ve used had to be babysitted through the projects, but we haven’t had to do this at all with The Software House. We can give them requirements, discuss how to do the work, and have it delivered on time and on budget. The Software House is the best we’ve worked with, out of all our partners.
