The new features speeded up and enhanced Alphabet Partner’s journeys through the icon system as well as refining the process for quoting in the new system. Craig Judson， Operations Manager from Codeweavers commented
When Alphabet approached us about releasing a new feature each day as part of a 12 days of Christmas campaign I was both excited and apprehensive. I was certain we had the capabilities，resources and knowledge to achieve 12 features within 12 days but knew it would be a unique challenge. Our teams at both Codeweavers and Alphabet Partner came together to overcome plenty of hurdles and practical challenges to deliver 12 quality， fully functional features to the icon Point of Sale (POS) system. Each of the new features had huge benefits to the Alphabet Partner customers who are using icon everyday.
The new exclusive point of sale system，icon. was released in September 2014 after just 4 months development time. icon was designed to enable vehicle finance brokers to provide a full range of finance products for businesses and business users. The system has re-defined technology in the UK Broker market， offering an unrivalled level of flexibility， multi-device access and most importantly a great and intuitive customer experience.The range of new features that were delivered over the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ included Partners being able to discover the technical details of a vehicle they have selected when compiling a quote， a 'Comparison Tool' where partners can compare finance packages at a click of a button， as well as a new 'Quicker Picker' vehicle selection tool.
The new features were delivered to Alphabet Partner and the icon system last month and already Partners feedback has been extremely positive on the improvements and the overall enhancement of the Alphabet Partner user experience.

Our Alphabet Partners really looked forward to seeing what the next day would bring in terms of a development to an already industry leading system. The enhancements also kept up our momentum with Partners over the seasonal period.
