Vehicle Credit Granting Platform for a Bank Image

Vehicle Credit Granting Platform for a Bank

Location: Brazil

Mobile and Web Platform

Overview: OMNI vehicle credit granting processes became less bureaucratic through the development of its first mobile platform, Omni+.

Murilo Silvério, Chief Operating Officer at Omni Financial Solutions, explains the challenge faced and how it was solved:

“Before we had a process of 18 fields to be filled in the simulator (desktop only), to get the

instalment payment amount to be due without considering needs of customer  guarantees.
Today with only 6 fields we are able to run a first screening, which performs a series of validations that ends up pre-approving the conditions of financing or refinancing the vehicle, relying only on the confirmation of the data informed by the customer".

By placing customers benefits at the heart of the process, Omni+ mobile and desktop platforms revolutionized credit analysis and are expected to benefit over 222k people, from retailers, credit officers to consumers.
APP Omni+ performs credit analysis and simulates the financing conditions of a vehicle within minutes. It is also possible real-time adjustments of purchase conditions to the customer’s needs, by simply touching the screen.

"All the agility needed to solve the problem of bureaucracy that put the sale at risk were provided. We applied UX development to Omni+ with real end-user concern. The project was based on processes that ensured on-time deliveries and low rework rate".  

A team of ten experts were selected to develop Omni+, taking only a bit longer than two months, with nearly 300 deliverables generated.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

As a result of the project, the client was able to significantly reduce their risk in the targetted processes, completely satisfying project requirements. The DB1 Global Software team is collaborative at all times, making the project very easy for both sides to manage.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a project manager at my company, so I am responsible for our payments process and technical solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DB1 Global Software?

We were looking for a development partner to help us with a big software project that we needed to complete.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

There were several specific upgrades that we needed to implement in order to meet requirements for our payment systems, and we don’t have a team inside our company with the capabilities to do that. They primarily worked in PHP to develop the system architecture.

What is the team composition?

We work about six people from their team.

How did you come to work with DB1 Global Software?

I had worked with several outsourcing companies in the past and had not had very good experiences. Because of that, we started this process by visiting our potential partners and getting to know their processes and team. We really liked what we saw with them, especially the personal touch that they bring to their work, so we decided to go with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $50,000 with them in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in November 2019 and is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

There weren’t a lot of metric outcomes with which we could measure the results of the project, but we have been very pleased with the outcome so far. We were able to significantly increase our operational risk mitigation in the payment process that they developed for us. Beyond that, the quality of the code and the structure of our site architecture are really impressive.

How did DB1 Global Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We used a suite of programs to manage our work and communication with them, including JIRA, which worked very well. They collaborated within our processes for requirement documentation, as well as Microsoft programs to make sure that we were always up to date on their progress.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They conduct their business with transparency, professionalism, and integrity. That level of service makes it very easy to work with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

If anything, they could stand to be a little bit less formal in how they communicate with their client. We appreciated how polite they always were, but there is some room for being a little bit more easy-going at times.

Feedback summary: 

Bridging the gaps in the client’s expertise, DB1 brought a unique skill set to the table. Their flexible contract offering was a great advantage, and the partnership has been fruitful thus far. While more creative freedom could be appreciated, they’ve proven to be a competent and reliable partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a manager at a software development company based in Brazil.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DB1?

We were seeking an outsourced development partner because our current project was outside the scope of our expertise, which is PHP and cloud computing infrastructures. We needed help in creating a web app that would facilitate payments across Brazil and Latin America.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They focused on integrating the systems of different international companies in creating this functional payment application. They needed to implement an API to connect the different databases. Since we’re only familiar with cloud-computing infrastructure (and not on-premise infrastructure,) DB1 provided support on this front, as well.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and 3­–4 developers. They worked with our 50 or so in-house developers.

How did you come to work with DB1 Global Software?

I’m not qualified to answer this question, because the collaboration pre-dated my onboarding at my company. I imagine they were selected for their technical expertise and the flexibility of their contracts.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend roughly $20,000 every month, so we’ve spent close to $500,000 at this point.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2017, and it’s an ongoing collaboration

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

They offer a unique skill set that has been a great asset in terms of development. Their methodology of quality assurance and continuous integration has been very effective. They’ve improved the quality of our software.

How did DB1 Global Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We used our own tools and project management model, so that was mostly on us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their strong technical skills and their flexible contractual offering are both great advantages to working with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re a little too laser-focused on getting the job done, instead of widening the scope of technology they could bring to the table. Our company could benefit from the complete scope of their skills and suggestions.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the team manager at a digital banking platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DB1 Global Software?

We needed someone to develop our mobile and web app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DB1 Global Software developed our app for iOS and Android. They also developed the web version of the app using Java. We asked them to create a purchase solution for tokens that we use in our digital bank solution. They developed a similar platform to work with the tokens, which is embedded in our applications.

What is the team composition?

We worked with around seven people from their team.

How did you come to work with DB1 Global Software?

When I started working here, they were already a supplier. We still work with them because they’re very close to us and highly collaborative.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May 2019, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’re satisfied with the results. The other IT manager who works with them also has good feedback. As we continue to grow our IT projects, we’re expanding the number of resources from DB1 Global Software.

How did DB1 Global Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We use agile methodology, working in sprints, and tracking our project using Jira. DB1 Global Software has a Scrum master. They attend all the daily meetings and inform us about the status of the project. They ask us for any recommendations or improvements we want. They feel like a part of our company.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

We have a very challenging scenario here in Brazil, with things changing quite rapidly. I appreciate that as soon as we receive any urgent demands, they understand the urgency and work fast to provide the outcome.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’re implementing a tool to check the quality of software. While there are no issues in terms of their software, they just need to follow our new standard in terms of software quality.
