Project background

We developed a mobile banking app for a fintech startup and needed to integrate it with our current client’s digital banking platform. To iron out some of the platform integration details, we got in touch with the client’s development team – and that’s how our story began.

 

A short time later, the client decided to develop their own white-label mobile banking app and turned to us to implement the project, as they had already seen our engineers in action and were impressed by their expertise and strong communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.

 

After the successful app delivery, the client gave us another project. We were tasked to develop new features for the existing mobile app that another software development service provider had developed for our client.

Target audience

In addition to providing digital banking services, our client helps its partners with banking app development – for this, they sometimes bring in external software development vendors to close specific skills gaps and reinforce their in-house team. The application we worked on was developed by such vendor for a financial services conglomerate based in Europe that offers banking, insurance, investment, real estate, wealth management, and retirement products and services. The target audience is therefore the conglomerate’s customers, i.e. Europeans who have bank accounts and want to manage their money securely, quickly, and conveniently without having to visit a bank branch.

Project challenges

Tight deadlines

Our client is committed to keeping the app’s time to market as short as possible. Therefore, we work under tight deadlines, which puts some pressure on our team. Thanks to our well-established teamwork and vast experience in software development, we meet the deadlines without compromising on quality.

Development process

The Itexus team was responsible for developing the front end, while the back end was developed by the client’s in-house team. Our task was to add new functionality to an existing banking app.

Initially, we enabled a fully digital onboarding flow, where users could scan their documents for KYC and profile completion, and the app would automatically recognize the required information and fill in the appropriate fields. For a while, we worked concurrently with the client’s previous vendor, but over time we took full ownership of the project.

After digital onboarding, we continued to implement additional features. The project was executed on a milestone approach, with each milestone relating to the development of the defined functionality. We reported on costs every month.

Results & future plans

In 6 months, we implemented all required features according to the client’s requirements, within time, and on budget. The app is up and running and is available to its users within the European market. Meanwhile, our DevOps team is planning code refactoring, i.e. editing and cleaning up the code written by the previous vendor, to make it more efficient and maintainable. We also support and maintain three other banking apps created by that vendor for our client and their partners.
