Thomsons Online Benefits is a global leader in the field of benefits management and employee engagement software. Their vision is to bring much needed change to the benefits industry and help the world’s leading organizations to transform their employee reward strategies. Among others, they serve global brand giants such as Cisco, Deutsche Bank, IBM, Google, Apple, Facebook and GFK.
Darwin is Thomsons’ flagship software solution. It automates employee benefits related processes, streamlining the benefits package administration, while also enabling employees to take control of their benefits and understand the real value of their total rewards package. Darwin – true to its name – constantly evolves to meet business needs and legislative changes. It also lets employees adjust their benefits to fit in with their changing lifestyles.
Qubiz provided a dedicated “augmented” development team that worked side by side with Thomsons’ own development team. The two teams joint results so far are: code refactoring of the service module, reward center module, new features added to existing modules, and improved overall performance of the software. In the next phase of the project a control center module will be developed.
