What is it? An on-line used car buying site for employees, which, typically, is accessed via a company's Intranet. It attempts to address the imbalance between those who do and don't get a company car and increase the scope for voluntary benefits.
Rating The site works well and the design is clean. eDefined has done a fair amount of usability testing and it does a good job of building up a relationship with the customer. It also addresses their needs immediately, letting a user choose which car they want at which price. We did note there weren't as many cars available as we thought there might be and would get a fed up of repeated "cannot match your search criteria" messages coming up. eDefined acknowledges this on the site and you can request a car and it will go off and search for it.
What is it? A concierge system for time-starved employees to readdress their work-life balance. It acts as a middleman between the employee and the service they require, which ranges from booking theatre tickets to keyholding. Cost is £55 per month per employee.
Rating It's impossible to glean from the site how well Enviego works since it is merely an interface to a range of services it offers (prospective clients are able to trial the system properly). It's a minimally designed interface which takes the user quickly through to the range of services available. After choosing the service you want a list is given of options to book. These aren't as comprehensive in some sections as we expected – one trainer was listed in Health and Beauty and a single dog walker under pets. What remains to be seen is how it will cope with demand when the service takes off. Service providers are linked to the Enviego system which automatically notifies them of a job request. Enviego collates and compares the quotes submitted and then forwards them to the users for approval. We didn't actually book a service but given that the suppliers are all linked to the system, it should work well.
