Scala at Thatcham

Thatcham Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre provides data to vehicle manufacturers with the aim of containing or reducing the cost of motor insurance claims, whilst maintaining safety and quality standards. They research efficient, safe, cost effective repair of vehicles, and work with manufacturers to influence the design of new vehicles.

Ross McDonald, Web Technologies Lead Architect, explains in his article why the company moved to Scala for both their research work and their Web site. He summarises their experience by saying "With Scala we can simply do more with less code, and we can do it better."
