Can you please provide a brief description of your company and the role that you play there?
We're a small retail bank in Tajikistan. I am the CEO of the bank.
What was the business challenge your company was facing that incited the need for an application development platform?
We were looking for an easy way to setup internet banking and a mobile solution with someone who had experience with FLEXCUBE [Oracle's Financial Services Software], which is our core banking system. The biggest challenge was the finding a platform and team that understood FLEXCUBE integration.
How does your company implement Appzillon?
We use Appzillon for an internet banking application. We have our Internet banking application on top of Appzillon, and it's connected to our core banking system. Our app displays transactions and users are able to perform transactions. Our applications are available on Web, Android, and iOS.
Was your company considering other platforms? Why this platform?
Appzillon had a ton of experience with FLEXCUBE, so having our application based on their platform was the natural choice. This way we would avoid all the unforeseen integration problems with FLEXCUBE. With Appzillon, we were able to build our product very quickly. I wasn't looking platform by platform to see which one was better, and which one was worse. It was more about finding someone who has a development platform and knows how to do FLEXCUBE integrations very well.
What pricing plan does your company currently utilize?
It's around $1,500 per month.
RESULTS & FEEDBACK
Can you share any success, metrics, or overall results of your implementation of this platform?
Our app is running well. It was set up fairly quickly, and that was an achievement in itself. It's not like we were transitioning from another platform. We didn't have Internet banking before, so it was an achievement that we rolled it out so quickly. In terms of metrics, we are currently testing it in some of our branches. Once that's done, we are going to roll it out across all of branches in the country. We have faith that it will be very successful.
Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?
Appzillon is easy and flexible – that is good. Interaction with them for support was good, and they are prompt. But, it's the early days of the application, so things might take a little bit longer. In general, I'm real happy.
Looking back, were there any areas of the software that feel could be added or improved upon?
Unlike the other development platforms, I don't think the partner ecosystem is developed, which limits the scope a lot.
We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. What would you give the software for ease of use and implementation?
What would you give the software for desired functionality of the features available?
For support and responsiveness of the team or resources available?
For overall satisfaction with the platform?
How likely are you to recommend the software to a colleague or similar business?
