Many customers won’t comply with KYC (eg: FICA) regulations because it’s too much hassle. For accountable institutions, the process is costly due to resources required, a slow onboarding process and often fines due to non-compliance.
We created DocFox, a sophisticated but easy-to-use web app that helps customers submit their KYC documents electronically in just a few taps. With many verification processes built into the app, accountable institutions can easily verify the authenticity of the client’s documents.
When new financial products are launched its often complicated to explain them to sales teams, financial advisors and clients.
We created a game which can be used in training sessions or for individuals to go through independently which simulates financial products. In this game the player can manage their client’s portfolio within the bounds of the specific product while engaging in a fun experience using scores to drive healthy choices.
The old way of incentivising staff or rewarding clients was to offer the same reward to everyone. But that doesn’t account for people’s unique tastes. Not everyone wants a spa day or movie tickets.
We built Moments, an app that uses a client’s unique information – age, gender, location, budget and personal preferences – to find rewards or experiences that it knows the app user will love. A novel way of rewarding clients with individual treatment.
Financial Services providers often struggle to maintain a consistent quality of service across large sales forces. In addition to this independent financial advisors can't always keep up to date on all the latest market events and products whilst having to contend with time-consuming admin and processes.
An indispensable tool for banks, asset managers and independent financial advisors , Robo Advisor takes into account their client’s financial goals and attitude to risk, and then curates an appropriate investment portfolio immediately. Using rich visuals and an engaging user interface it educates the customer and offers a transparent, easy to use investing tool. It also offers advisors a tool to allow for immediate proposal creation.
When a business needs a specific skillset, they often hire externally or use outside consultants, incurring high costs. But, as is common in large companies, the ideal person may already work for them. Many staff members have ‘hidden’ skills and the company simply isn’t aware of them. Someone in payroll may also be a good designer or an analyst may also be a talented writer.
We created a simple-to-use web app called Skills Market Place that matches staff members with unique ‘hidden’ skills to openings around the company, be they jobs or part time projects. Now HR managers and company directors can tap into a rich pool of talented people.
Millions of coloured desert cacti and succulents will be planted in an area the size of 66 soccer fields to create a mega-sized version of the South African flag. This project will create hundreds of much-needed jobs for locals as well as offset approximately 200 tons of carbon per year.
We built the Giant Flag website, which facilitates a complicated system of crowdfunding processes. Donors, from all over the world can select any of the succulents or cacti that represent one of the colours of the Giant Flag and adopt it or give it as a gift. This was a massive undertaking, with many moving parts and tricky processes built into the site.
We swing both ways.
Yip, we don’t stick to one discipline.
Some days we’re Software Engineers. Others we’re App Developers. Sometimes we’re a Tech Firm, then we’re Entrepreneurs and even Business Consultants.
Sometimes we start the day as one discipline and end it as another. It just depends on our client’s needs and what we’re building for them.
This is how we roll
Most days, we use a mashup of engineering, tech design and business thinking. And when we work collaboratively with you, it usually looks something like this:
We put our consultant hats on to completely immerse ourselves in a business problem. Through interviews with domain experts and extensive research we come out with a number of potential starting points for development.
We iteratively develop, test and revise versions of the product with actual users. Testing a real product is how we validate our assumptions about the right solution.
Once the product has been rigorously revised and validated in concept, we can proceed to the high fidelity build with all the bells and whistles. We do this knowing that each feature of the product has been tested and is necessary.
