Secure, Automated Fund Transfers
Develop a secure financial banking mobile and web app to support automated fund transfers between separate banking entities when predetermined conditions are met.
Building capability in:
Working with a small joint IBM and NearForm team, we identified and articulated the main customer story. By humanising the technical requirements, we ensured that the digital solution enhanced the overall customer experience.
A multi-platform app that uses one codebase for web, Android and iOS using React Native
Working multi-banking transactions against live open banking APIs
Authentication and authorisation across accounts while encrypting the data in transport and at rest
Within the app, the screens show all the customer’s financial information and the call-to-action buttons are complemented with default and customisable input fields. In line with OAuth 2.0 authorisation protocols, the app connects to the chosen bank for their specific authentication and authorisation processes.
Within just three weeks, we developed a fully operational, leading-edge, open banking app that enables a complex, real-world customer journey.
We underpinned the modern light design with a reference architecture that accelerates a consistent, optimised and secure, multi-platform solution.
