    Enhancing User Experience and Driving Business Growth


    Health Assured, the UK and Ireland's largest independent employee assistance programme (EAP) provider, faced a challenge with outdated technology supporting their services despite rapid business expansion. Their website and mobile app were built separately, leading to maintenance issues, content disparities, and reduced usability.

    Recognising the need for inclusivity and adherence to accessibility standards, Health Assured sought a modernised platform within months to retain and attract customers while improving internal team efficiency. Collaborating with Codurance, a trusted technology partner, they aimed to address these challenges and enhance user experience while meeting evolving business demands.

    We selected Codurance as our preferred partner to rebuild the Health Assured platform. The team built a world-class solution that fully met our objectives, within our required timeframe. We were always kept informed of progress throughout the project and the team built strong trust with our stakeholders. We could not be happier with the outcome and I would have no hesitation in collaborating with Codurance again in the future.

    Website and App Replatforming with UI Enhancement and Backend Refinement


    Codurance commenced their collaboration with Health Assured by conducting a thorough product discovery phase. This involved defining user groups, product purpose, and establishing a clear product vision with success metrics. By analysing user feedback and conducting stakeholder interviews, they identified key user groups and areas for improvement. Success measures, linked to the overarching mission and vision, were defined using OKRs (Objectives and Key Results). Prioritisation of features focused on enhancing user experience, ensuring that only impactful items were added to the backlog.

    In addition, Codurance prioritised accessibility, adhering to the WCAG 2.1 AA framework to accommodate users with disabilities. Following the discovery phase, an implementation plan was devised, emphasising incremental delivery to gather early feedback. This involved replatforming the website and mobile apps, creating a new UI for improved navigation, and enhancing back-office processes and reporting. Codurance provided comprehensive documentation and support as Health Assured transitioned the new assets in-house, empowering their product owner to maintain and iterate upon the improvements. With a quarterly review process in place and a focus on user needs, Health Assured is equipped to continuously add value to their offerings.
