Back in 2015, the Connected Insight team had put together a MVP version of their app. As a financial services startup, they wanted to build a platform to put structure on their process and help their clients visualize data to make informed strategic decisions.
We had no idea what that meant, but we leapt at the opportunity to help them do it. We took their MVP, redesigned it and developed a fully-fledged product ready for market.
Getting there was no easy feat. We started by getting the team together in Dublin to do a deep-dive into the bewildering world of corporate finance. Days later we emerged as fully rounded professionals, throwing terms like “KPI”, “FTE” and “FLC” around with confidence.
Knowledge in hand we went about designing a completely new user experience from the ground up. This was an opportunity to do something exciting in an industry not typically known for its app usability. We think you’ll agree: the result were breathtaking.
We then had to build the thing. To cut a long story short, this was hard. We don’t want to talk about it. Neither to they.
We built a full-stack web application using Django and Ember.js to give Connected Insight a modern application stack that they could use and sell with confidence.
Since lauching the app in 2017, we’ve helped the Connected Insight team to grow the product by becoming their on-hand technical team. We’ve been maintaining their infrastructure, fixing bugs and helping them to add new features for their growing client list.
