How It All Started

A FinTech startup got in touch with us with an idea of creating an app that would allow students who often owe tens of thousands of dollars to pay off their loans faster by aggregating cashback money from merchant deals and transferring it into their personal student loan accounts. Later on, our team and the client made a decision that the system should be further extended by introducing new services such as sending money to other app users and transferring it to their savings accounts.

In order to start using the respective services, a user would need to download the app, sign in to with their bank account, review and claim available special deals, and finally use their credit cards directly at the checkout and receive the cashback. All the other operations will be performed by the app.
