The Challenge

JCT600 VLS have comprehensive existing fleet management software, however the customer-facing interface that it provides is quite traditional in its design and user experience and content. JCT600 VLS were looking to create a solution that harnessed the power of their in-house software whilst dramatically evolving the user experience and adding additional features and functionality for their customers and their drivers.


What We Did We created an easy-to-use bespoke online platform to speed up the process and automate specification comparisons.

We proposed creating an easy-to-use, bespoke online platform to enhance the end-to-end order journey process. This improved the user experience for the driver by enabling the comparison of both schemes and vehicles, to provide the driver with personalised costs, enabling an informed vehicle selection.

Throughout the design process, the question "How can we balance multiple scheme types and cross-reference key specification data within a simple, easy to digest application?" underpinned the solutions we suggested.

The development process was handled in sprints, tackling the high-priority areas of the application first, within an initial MVP release. The application development was then accelerated into a live release, which has been extremely well received since launch.

Technologies utilised include modern front-end technologies such as Vue.js and an optimised hosting environment to help deliver the level of performance required for swift page and content load times.


The Results A unique, market-leading online platform which provides real-time driver focused cost calculations.

The overall product called 'Origo' is a unique, market-leading online platform which provides real-time driver focused cost calculations. It provides the ability to calculate multiple cost and specification comparisons, in an easy to use system.

These features enable drivers to make cost-effective, informed choices with a seamless and comfortable order process.

It has proven to be a great success, fulfilling their initial aim of creating a bespoke online platform to improve the end-to-end order journey process.

The application also makes specific and complex use of multiple APIs such as their in-house software and CAP data to feed the system with car-specification information. These are handled in a balance between local storage and real-time information.

Fleet drivers now have full understanding of the running costs of their potential next vehicle, allowing them to assess the benefits more quickly and efficiently.

This is an active project, with further development and enhancements to the system continuing into 2022. 

Forthcoming phases of work include building out further administrative functionality to handle independent features for different businesses' requirements. 

What JCT600 VLS said...

We have worked with Ascensor, formally Blue Mantis, for several years and they have always gone the extra mile with every project.

Their willingness and ability to work within our technological and time constraints is second to none. They have repeatedly exceeded our expectations with both the designs and developed solutions.

The best testimonial I can give is that they are our trusted partner and their capability has given us confidence to push boundaries further to ensure we are providing our customers with market-leading platforms.
