Cross-platform Mobile App for Online Credit Assistant

Customer

The Customer is GeoCredits, an intermediary between banks and clients looking to get a loan on the most favorable terms. On their website, GeoCredits lists the best credit offers so that a visitor could find the most suitable one and submit a credit request. The Customer then coordinates the requests with the chosen bank and later informs customers on the bank’s decision.

Challenge

GeoCredits’ business activity is completely website-based. To make their services available for mobile users, the Customer wanted to create a mobile application that, they believed, would be more convenient in use than a mobile version of the website. They also embraced the idea of cross-platform mobile development on Cordova and Ionic for the app to be available on both Android and iOS.

Solution

As soon as the Customer specified the application design, ScienceSoft proceeded to implementing the project. The Customer chose to add some functionality to the app’s requirements in the course of development, thus extending the work scope and prolonging the timeframe from 1 to 3 months.

The application allows users to conveniently fill in the loan application form and immediately submit it to GeoCredits. The main menu lists banks’ cash loans and credit cards offers.

App users can also read guides on applying for a loan, join discussions in the comments or contact the customer support of GeoCredits to clarify some information.

Results

The Customer was pleased with the application quality and performance. On their website, GeoCredits now offers their clients to download the application both from Apple Store and Google Play for free.
