Business Goals

The founders of the American-based startup SmartStart wanted to build a compelling app for users who lack knowledge in wealth management.

The goal was to come up with an all-in-one solution that would track all the spendings, loans, analyze spendings, and set up financial goals.

The app should have looked accessible for any type of audience, have multiple integrations with American banking systems, asset and property management platforms, and contain forecasting algorithms.

Solution

Our business analytics team developed a concept of all-in-one financial application that would let users take full control of their spending and financial goals.

The application was divided into 3 components:

1

Spending monitoring and Market analysis, it included general spendings, segmentation and categories, future spending forecasting and personalized notifications when users approached the spending limit.

2

Financial portfolio. It included asset management, setting up goals for potential savings (like apartment or car), property management (like rental income), and personalized offers for investments.

3

Loan opportunities. The team developed a special algorithm that synchronized data with banks and provided the options with high probability of getting a loan.

Each component underwent numerous testings by focus groups and QA testers in order to make it easy to understand and control personal funds for people with no experience.

As for security measures, we used Two-Factor Authentication with the use of OAUTH2 login security protocol.

The team behind the project

The team comprised 14 specialists.

Development team was responsible for developing both iOS and Android applications simultaneously. The architecture of the app had to be somehow similar for future scalability and improvements.

Our design team provided over 10 concepts and prototypes in order to highlight the best practices and combine it into the final version of the app.

The QA team launched multiple automated tests in order to find security breaches because the app integrated with banks. The whole number of tests reached 200. The whole team also collaborated with DevOps specialists to ensure they followed secure SDLC guidelines and selected the suitable cloud provider.
