As part of their strategy to better protect and manage portfolios, they asked Keyrus to accompany them in the project governance, the requirements fit-gap analysis and the development of a new core application for their operations. A modern take over their previous application that was very time-consuming: often leading to input errors, nested with bugs and lacking in terms of performance and user-friendliness. The real challenge was the choice of a technology fitting the needs of our client, as well as our ability to deliver operational and visual bits of the application within agreed timeframes.
- The old software was studied to reveal the needs and requirements of the new application - After careful consideration, a proof-of-concept was developed in Flutter, Google’s cross-platform framework (open source UI software development kit) - The application was progressively created in a fully agile environment, displaying the disruptive nature of this technology on the market - The app viewer was built with instructions sent by the server: this groundbreaking approach to development was made possible by Flutter, allowing to dynamically render the screens and easily shape the massive amount of data handled by our client’s requests.
The new application enabled a boost in terms of efficiency and execution. The software is now able to handle heavier and more complex requests faster: improving our client’s speed and effectiveness in trading rooms. Our client is now able to fully focus on his mission and garner the potential of a powerful application to provide an all-rounded better service for its customers.
