Find the best loan conditions
The project is a loan application that allows users to find the best conditions and receive a loan. The application has a friendly interface with a bunch of functions and descriptions which help to interact with the interface and close user needs. Users are able to use the calculator on the home page and choose the necessary amount.
We were given a task to develop a frontend part for the application cooperating with a python developer that had been already hired by the client and developed some part of backend functionality using the Django framework. The application should have been interacted with users who need to get a loan and with banks that were going to offer loans and specific conditions for each user.
The pilot country to launch the app should be Ukraine. And then the client has ambitions to scale the app in other countries. Having passed the first screen with the calculator a user should fill additional fields and choose prerequisites. Involved banks should make an offer and conditions based on the information provided by users.
What we did
What we did
The UX/UI design was already done and we received it. After checking them there were defined weak places in the app's logic and flagged as functionality that needs to be finalized and then developed. We created a branch in a repository and started doing markup development because the app had no pages developed. There was only a coded backend side that needed to be finalized according to the design and business logic. We started to interact with the python developer and code the logic and functionality.
Each week we had calls with the developer and the client in order to be synchronized and be sure we are on the same page. Surely interacting with a developer out of the staff is not easy. There are time gaps, some moments of miscommunication, and many other things that affect the development process and the final result. However, we built our process and discussed all points concerning endpoints, technologies, etc, to have everything to work for close days. This way we minimized almost all risks that had been able to affect our cooperation. All design screens have been converted into a code and delivered to the client.
As the result, we've developed a good loan application that was feet to all client's requirements. The application provides people with the ability to get a loan and use the costs for particular needs like education, car buying, etc. It works without standing in queues, the system gives all the information and generates loans. It's very comfortable to have a smartphone inside a pocket and be able to receive a loan in several clicks. The client was very happy and launched the product.
