Java solution helps customers with complex searches in huge database

Sogeti develops a Car Search Engine for an European car leasing services company

Background

Athlon wanted to optimally assist its lease drivers in their search for the ideal lease car. In order to provide lease drivers with insight into the current possibilities, Athlon developed a digital car search engine. The lease prices for the cars depend on different criteria and this requires daily updates. It also requires a daily rebuild of all calculations to determine the lease price.

Solution

With support from Sogeti, Athlon managed to design and develop a complex car search engine and car configurator. The development team was co-sourced by Sogeti with three senior Java experts.

Benefits

Athlon has more than 100,000 lease cars in 13,000 different versions & designs, which can all be leased for different time periods and kilometer packages. Supported by the car search engine, lease-drivers can perform searches as per each version/design available. Using 20 to 30 different search criteria they will be able to find the perfect car within seconds and configure the car with all the options and accessories they want. Because of new technologies the website responds within milliseconds in a database of 15 million records.
