This investment forms the foundation of the organisation’s strategy for a transparent and results-driven IT infrastructure that has the flexibility to meet the organisation’s needs now and in the future.
CRMworks Ltd, a leading implementer of ITIL based solutions, has been commissioned by Gocompare.com to deploy Cherwell to underpin its service management strategy and enhance processes and procedures. With more than 15 years’ experience, CRMworks will deliver a phased solution that will help Gocompare.com to reach its goal of becoming a World Class IT organisation.
After evaluating a number of products on the market, Ben Wigley, Head of IT Service Management at Gocompare.com, found that Cherwell provided the required flexibility to adapt to the changing requirements of the business. “Gocompare.com is a young, vibrant and rapidly expanding company, so we need to work with people who understand our business objectives and provide good advice. The team at CRMworks has demonstrated this already by showing us that Cherwell will provide us with the framework to formalise our processes and procedures,” commented Ben.
Based on the system implemented by CRMworks, Ben’s team is already getting great feedback from Gocompare.com employees. “Initial results have been very promising and internal customers have noted improvements straight away. They are reporting much better incident resolution times and significant improvements in communication with the department. We are confident therefore that the combination of Cherwell and CRMworks is going to provide us with a solid basis on which to build.”
Commenting on the project, David Knowles, Managing Director, CRMworks Ltd said,“We are delighted to be working with Gocompare.com and are thrilled that they have chosen to work with Cherwell, as it is the ideal platform on which to build any business workflow. Its open API also means that it will integrate with existing technologies to provide a ‘joined up’ view of an organisation that is vital to the decision making process, especially in a price sensitive market.”

Gocompare.com launched in November 2006. It was founded by Hayley Parsons, who has worked her entire career in the insurance broking and aggregator markets. It was the first comparison site to focus on displaying product features rather than just listing prices, and it was this philosophy that led to Gocompare.com becoming the only price comparison site to be invited to join the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA).
Today, Gocompare.com has become one of the most successful comparison sites in the UK, with the equivalent of a quote being carried out every second during 2011. It provides one of the most comprehensive online car insurance comparison services in the UK as well as comparing home insurance, pet insurance, breakdown cover, and bike and van insurance.
With Gocompare.com, customers can also compare a wide variety of other products and services, including credit cards, travel insurance and business products, plus gas and electricity and other household services. Gocompare.com is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
