1 The Client
We built this solution for NAPAC, which stands for the National Association of Professionally Accredited Contractors, based in Pennsylvania.
2 The Challenge
Remodeling industry relies heavily on providing the right financing to its customers to win over their business. Remodeling cost can go upto six figures so the right lending solution matters for the customers. NAPAC wanted to build a solution for its customers who are remodeling companies. Sales people at the remodeling companies go door to door to assess the project and estimate the cost of the project. Sales people also needed a solution that they could use on their mobile device to show the cost of financing and various financing options available. NAPAC reached out to Simpalm since they did not have in-house expertise to build mobile solutions. Client wanted to build the app that works fast and in offline mode in the field, since internet access is not available at several locations. Simpalm took upon the challenge and built the solution.
3 The Solution
We build mobile apps, web apps and backend
We listened to the client carefully and proposed a solution by doing the wireframes and visual designs so that the client could review the app flow. We built the complete UIUX design for the apps in around 4 weeks. Once the designs were approved by the client, we started to do the development of both iOS and Android App. We also did the design for the web app and backend server. We assigned a PM, iOS Developer, Android Developer, Web developer to build different components of the application. We first coded the front end UI of the apps with all the screens to show the full working flow of the apps and then implemented functionality in the app. We also reviewed the APIs provided by the client to understand the backend database. We integrated apps with the APIs using the REST method. We tested the apps and finally delivered the apps in 2 months. This App offers several benefits to borrowers by comparing hundreds of loan programs quickly and accurately estimates payments. The App helps lenders match their program to the types of borrowers. The app is available on both App Store and Google Play to download at no cost.
