The Obstacles They Faced
Being a fintech startup, SavvyMoney were looking for a partner that would help them to strengthen their presence on the market and keep costs low.
SavvyMoney aimed to leverage scaling up the development organization as they grew.
How We Helped
Romexsoft built the dedicated development team in line with the client’s business needs. We enabled SavvyMoney to take full advantage of having their business in the cloud by leveraging our proven AWS expertise.
Together with the client our dedicated team developed two new products:
- SavvyMoney Credit Score to monitor financial health based on the SSO solution for integration with financial business partner software systems
- Offer Engine Application which enables the system to make suggestions on loans and credits for refinancing based on the users’ financial profiles
Romexsoft’s Dedicated Development Team handled the full circle of Software Development for SavvyMoney’s key products.
SavvyMoney’s primary challenges included growing their audience (at the beginning of our partnership it was around 10K users) and improving the website performance and scalability by over 80% so the system could maintain a higher number of users.
Other important challenges were:
- development of the SavvyMoney Pro feature with options of registration, enrolling accounts, and personalized payment plans suggestions
- development of a credit product based on SSN and personal users info
- integration with the SSO solution and other web resources
Amazon Web Services
SavvyMoney decided to choose AWS as their main hosting platform due to its scalability, reliability, constant innovations, and low latency. Romexsoft has successfully utilized a range of AWS tools during the development of the SavvyMoney’s app, ensuring the app’s high performance, global availability, and security.
AWS services utilized:
- AWS CodeCommit
- RDS MsSQL
- ElastiCache Redis
- Amazon MQ
Solution Delivered by Romexsoft
Our dedicated team helped SavvyMoney to increase development speed, ensured flexibility in the development process as well as effective scaling of their technical capabilities. We helped the client to decrease their Total Cost of Ownership in comparison to establishing and managing an in-house team.
Romexsoft gathered and analyzed the client’s requirements, defined project roles and functions, established the SDLC, ensured team’s performance, and controlled quality and delivery of consistent results.
At the beginning Romexsoft provided Rescue Mission service and improved website performance from 80% up to 98% by using REST architecture. This gave an opportunity for the system to maintain big amounts of users without crashes.
The rapid traffic growth led to a need of adding resources on Amazon Web Services every time it happened and terminating such resources when the traffic fell for the sake of cost reduction. By adding the AWS auto-scaling feature we created a cost-effective model and reduced man-hours.
The dedicated team built the solution’s microservice architecture in Java Spring Boot framework.
For the solution to be even more secure our dedicated team used AWS CodeCommit which securely hosts private Git repositories and makes it easy for teams to collaborate on code, and AWS Parameter Store which provides secure and hierarchical storage for configuration data management. Please check our Secure and Effective Development without Access to Sensitive Data AWS Case Study to know more.
Our dedicated team developed the SavvyMoney Credit Score solution aimed at financial health monitoring which allowed the transition into the B2B model targeting credit union users and creating co-branding pages.
Key features included:
- credit report card and credit risk score generation
- personalized loan account
- custom payoff plan
- evaluation of debt and expenses related to user’s income
- production of personalized recommendations
- DIY Payoff Newsletter
- high level of safety and data encryption
- backup and restore strategies
Romexsoft ensured that the solution was in line with SavvyMoney’s vision and expectations and that it worked seamlessly 24/7.
