Creation Process
Product vision

We developed a tailored vision through market research. Our team collaborated closely with the client's team to tailor the solution to the tight MENA legislation for fintech. Based on the results, we continuously refined the vision to ensure the best possible market fit.

Product design

Once we had established a clear feature list, our team created wireframes that were specifically tailored to the chosen target audience. Our goal was to develop a concept that not only offered ease of use but would fit into the determined budget.

architecture design

We took into consideration all the needed functionality and regulations in order to create a scalable solution. By taking into account all the benefits and drawbacks from the perspective of business, technical, compliance, and security, we suggested an adaptable solution architecture that was cost-effective and user-friendly.


Our team of 12 engineers developed  a cross-platform iOS and Android app. We helped our customer secure the open banking technology and integrate 24 banks into the solution. This was a challenge as the reliability of the application hinged on seamless compatibility with integrated services. We encountered hurdles but overall the solution ended up being non-cumbersome and highly functional.

Maintenance & Support

Following the release, we proceeded to incorporate new features, modernize software, and work on hot-fixes based on feedback from clients.
