How to Build a Mobile Banking App: ScienceSoft’s Roadmap

Mobile banking app development is a way for banks to introduce a sleek, user-friendly application that provides convenient and secure access to banking operations, enabling customers to manage their finances from anywhere.

The banking app development process at ScienceSoft usually covers the following steps:

Step 1.

Discovery

We analyze your business needs and audience expectations, research the mobile banking market trends, and compose a detailed list of requirements for the banking app. Our experts define the development project scope, devise tailored sets of KPIs, provide high-level time and cost estimates, and outline potential software risks (security, adoption, compliance, etc.) and pragmatic ways to mitigate them.

Step 2.

Technical design

We introduce an optimal feature set for your banking app (including cybersecurity features) and suggest the functional scope for an MVP. Our mobile experts architect your app for high scalability and 99.9% availability and compose a cost-effective development tech stack. We use the final technical design to create a detailed plan of project tasks and resources.

Mobile app design involves choosing between native (iOS, Android) and cross-platform development approaches. In our projects, we analyze the economic feasibility of both options and suggest the optimal choice based on our client’s priorities in speed, budget, and development scope.

Step 3.

UX and UI design

Our UX/UI designers create a convenient UX and an appealing visual style for your banking app to streamline user adoption and drive high customer satisfaction. We tailor the app’s appearance to the brand book of our client and leave room for end-user customization of the app’s look, including accessibility features.

Step 4.

Development and QA

Our financial app developers code the back end of your mobile banking application, build APIs to enable the required integrations, and create role-specific user interfaces. We run full-scale functional, performance, and security testing of the app in parallel with coding to quickly identify and fix any potential issues.

Starting with an MVP of a mobile banking app helps launch the app faster, start collecting early user feedback, and introduce targeted improvements in the consequent software iterations. We can deliver an MVP of your app in 3–5 months and gradually upgrade it to a fully-featured solution with major releases every 2–3 weeks.

Step 5.

Integration

We integrate the mobile banking app with your core banking systems and the required third-party services (e.g., authentication, GPS navigation). Our QA experts perform extensive integration testing to ensure uninterrupted and safe data flow between the solutions.
