Finance industry verticals
we have experience in

We’ve been active on the software development market for over 15 years now.

In that time, we’ve had plenty of opportunities to collaborate with clients from a variety of different industries, even within the financial services sector itself.

While our fintech background is extensive, there’s no vertical we’ve worked with more than lending.

Lending software development

What is the number one challenge lending services providers face? In our experience, it’s trust.

You’re asking your clients to trust you with their money. That kind of trust needs to be earned. The best way to do that is to build your app with this goal in mind.

A loan application platform has to be simple, accessible, and inviting. Your users need to feel encouraged to go through the whole process, and if they drop out at any step, you should already have their contact information so that you can reach out and keep talking to them.

Naturally, smart UI/UX design that’s easy to use is just the tip of the iceberg. You also need to think about: conversion, precision, visualization, customization, synchronization, optimization, integration—among many others.

We know all this. We’ve seen it before with our previous lending clients. We can help you like we’ve helped them.

Which fintech lending problems

can we help you with?
Having worked with many fintech clients over the years, we’ve seen our fair share of challenges they faced. Here are some of the problems we can help you solve if you decide to team up with us:
Problems with third-party integration
Lack of necessary know-how
Data synchronization issues
Poor and uninviting UI/UX
High maintenance costs of inefficient solutions
Bad system architecture
No API integration
Inability to attract new clients
Database mismatch to app functionality

How can we meet your
fintech lending needs?

Custom
design

Bespoke UI/UX solutions are a sure-fire way to build straightforward, effective, and visually appealing web and mobile apps.

Strong frontend drives conversion; it’s the key to attracting more clients who will complete more transactions. At the same time, precision of design and attention to detail are essential to building trust with your users. Success is impossible without making people feel good about using your product.

However, custom design also means smart design. Your platform has to look great and be user-friendly, but above all else, it needs to be as accessible as possible. We’ll employ tried-and-tested design practices to make using your app easy, quick, and effortless.

security
Data
security

Dealing with sensitive information on a daily basis means data security is of paramount importance to your business.

In order to store and process vast quantities of data safely, your app requires proper infrastructure and optimization. Luckily, building software and testing its security is our bread and butter.

We have the necessary expertise and technical know-how to meet your specific safety challenges. If you already have an app and are worried about its security, we can offer you consulting support and point out any flaws or gaps in your system.

icon-machine-learning
Robotic process
automation

Using cutting-edge ML/AI solutions, we’ll automate your complex business processes and take your fintech app to the next level.

Implementing RPA results in lowering your development costs, increasing the performance of your app, and boosting the overall software quality of your product. It also improves the security of your confidential data.

Moreover, Python is a great fit for RPA and makes its implementation much easier. Since we’re the largest Python software house in Europe, our expertise will definitely come in handy here.

Data storing
Data
storing

We can design, optimize, and build a wide range of data storing solutions for you, including transactional databases, data lakes, and data warehouses.

To help you solve any problems you may have related to storing and backing up data effectively, we offer compression, normalization, and selection of the right data mechanisms, formats, and structures.

We’ll also make your data easy to read and save, paying attention to its availability and proper access control.

Customer relationship
management

The CRM is the heart of every fintech company on the market. We’ll help you customize the existing solutions to best meet your individual needs.

Since the CRM is where you keep all of your client information, it is the key to hitting all the targets outlined in your sales KPIs. As your business foundation, the CRM needs to be implemented very well.

We know that and we’ll ensure this foundation is as solid as it can be for you. Plus, it will make your integration with third-party solutions a lot easier.

technology-consulting
Marketing
automation

Put your marketing on autopilot by linking your various marketing channels, workflows, and data points to create an integrated multi-channel strategy.

Thanks to marketing automation, you’ll be able to trigger personalized communications based on user behavior, demographics, firmographics, or CRM status—through e-mail, popups, digital advertising, chat messages, or the in-app offering itself.

Your engagement will grow, your lead nurturing will become more effective, and your results will be easier to track. All of this means you will save precious time that you can allocate to where it is better spent.

 

Our solutions to fintech
lending challenges

System Design and Architecture
System
architecture

Solid infrastructure is the crucial first step to building a robust lending platform.

Many of our clients benefit from our insights even at the earliest stages of development. We’ve been in charge of preparing both high-level implementation design plans and low-level technical system architecture.

System architecture design for lending in particular can be difficult when we first need to get familiar with outdated systems that might have been used to first build them. Luckily, it usually comes down to picking the right tools for the job, especially when it comes to integration.

digital-storyteling
Case
management

Store and track all your client data in a single location. Everything you need, right where you need it.

Loan application is a complicated process that is actually a number of smaller processes, like credit score verification, background check, underwriting, and a lot more.

We’ll use our thorough knowledge and understanding of your individual needs to implement specific solutions that will meet them best as a consequence of detailed and precise app design.

setup-environment
Third-party
integration

Integration with multiple existing systems is a must for any fintech company worth its salt.

Credit score calculation, bank account information, client identity confirmation, advanced marketing services, customer relationship management—there’s virtually no end to how many external systems you need to integrate with.

We’re acutely aware of it, closely familiar with those use cases, and able to tell you their pros and cons. We won’t be reinventing any wheels here, just applying tried-and-tested, readily available solutions.

Analytics NEW
Data
analytics

Collecting and storing client data isn’t the end of the story. The real key to success is knowing how to use it the right way.

To help you make better-informed and data-driven decisions, we actively support implementing solutions that generate insights. Every attempt to go through your loan application process, successful or not, needs to be monitored, saved, and stored to verify this data in the future.

We have extensive experience in product analytics tools and predictive models, as well as dashboards and reports that track your metrics both periodically and in real time.

 

ux-research
Solution
customization

No two lending platforms are the same. We’ll customize our solutions to your specific problems.

Experience, knowledge, and skill are everything in fintech. We know you seek not just software developers, but seasoned professionals who will immediately get exactly what you’re after and advise you on everything, from legal compliance to open banking.

Since we have expert know-how on the inner workings of finance, you’ll have no trouble communicating your business and tech needs to us as your partner, whether it’s finding B2C clients online or attracting new users through better design solutions.

Data processing NEW
Data
processing

Your app needs to process vast amounts of data. We’ll offer you scalable, reliable, and flexible solutions to accomplish that goal.

We’ve supported many companies in extracting, transforming, and cleaning their data. Instead of building new tools from scratch, we’ll use existing ML/DE solutions to help you build a more efficient data processing strategy.

Examples of those solutions in which we have the most experience include data pipelines, ETL processes, and batch processing.

unit-tests
Maintenance
optimization

Inefficient solutions are bound to cost you a lot of money. We can optimize them for you and lower your costs substantially.

Multiple factors may contribute to an increase or a decrease in the maintenance costs of your app. Everything, from the way you process your data to the way you provide access to your services, may play a part in this.

More likely than not, you have some leaks that could easily be plugged there. We’ll help you do just that, since cutting costs across the board is always a good idea—especially now, during a pandemic, when all savings matter.

data-vis
Data
visualization

Lending is a vertical where numbers are everywhere. You need to be able to make sense of them.

Spreadsheets, charts, dashboards, graphs—doesn’t matter if they’re simple or complex, in fintech, you’re dealing with hundreds of them, all the time.

The only way to process and present all this information is to have customizable data visualization services at hand. We'd be more than happy to help you with that.

At its heart, blockchain is all about innovation. Finding solutions to problems no one's ever solved before is the rule, not the exception, and nothing short of state-of-the-art software will suffice. It goes without saying that performance, reliability, and safety are all top priorities, as well.

We’ve worked with several cryptocurrencies, built entire projects around microservices, and designed atomic swaps—including one of the first ever documented!

Kim Steglich
Director of Operations @ BuildFax

We were able to scale up instantly, adding developers with the specific technical expertise that we needed and then rotating them out when the problem had been solved. At a much smaller firm that would have been very difficult. So far there hasn’t been any challenge that STX Next hasn’t been able to overcome.
