A quick news update from Lemonade!
With global happenings in such a fluctuating state, we wanted to share a quick news update on what is happening at Lemonade.
In many ways’ things are normal, we are still busy working away on our core software projects, meeting deadlines and hitting the quality levels we are used to delivering. We are extremely fortunate as a business that to be productive we do not need a factory or a laboratory or need to have face to face personal interaction with many people. One feels for those organisations during this time.
With our core offices in Belgium, Spain, Argentina and Sweden, COVID-19 has affected every country we have a physical representation in, and you can be assured that health guidelines are being followed meticulously and beyond. Again we are fortunate that as a company spread across several countries and locations, we have been utilising systems, techniques and tools to enable remote working for many years. These investments have always delivered value and results, and that is, even more, the case now. Co-creation across distributed teams and customers is inbuilt in our business and cultural DNA. You can read more about international working on complex software projects in our focused blog here >
We recently released a couple of case study reviews on our website, for two long term ongoing projects. LARS is our pupil wellbeing platform that currently handles and effectively shares data for 1.2 million pupils in Belgium, connecting education, healthcare, careers and wellbeing – we very much care for the project because it delivers a great tool to society. You can read the full case study here.
Another case study we have released is the ICS2 (Import Control System 2.0) customs software platform. Its primary function being the monitoring and tracing of risk-relevant information on goods that are entering the European Union. Lemonade has extensive experience in working on European Union software development projects. You can read the full case study here.
In a couple of areas, we have tried helping the community over the past weeks. Instead of funding the office fruit bowl and nutritious snacks in Barcelona, we have supported the Disfruta & Verdura project that delivers food to health workers and other non-profit organisations. We have also supported a local school in Belgium in enabling a video conferencing system to have quality contact with pupils. Small things from a lot of individuals or businesses can make a difference, and you see many great things happening across the planet like these examples right now.
We send everyone best wishes at these challenging times.
