Adapting to a changing landscape
The Acuris product development team were witnessing a growing trend in customer behaviour. Subscribers were no longer being constrained by a physical office or standard working hours; instead, they increasingly needed to access their financial news and intelligence from anywhere and at any time.
As a result of this feedback, Acuris launched a competitive process to identify an experienced and trusted partner to develop a mobile application that would help them adapt to the changing customer landscape.
I’m very pleased to announce that the Acuris Global mobile app is now live. I want to thank all of the team behind this, including our friends at Scott Logic. Well done and thank you!
Ross Heritage, CTO, Acuris
Deep sector knowledge
Scott Logic had worked on a wide range of mobile application development projects for other financial services clients and had a deep understanding of users within the sector. These factors, combined with a strong user-focussed approach, made Scott Logic a natural fit to deliver this project.
The project kicked-off with our multidisciplinary Product Manager, UX, Test and Development team getting together with Acuris at their London offices to discuss collaborative ways of working. The teams settled on Trello, Slack and regular conference calls to quickly discuss ideas, raise issues and share knowledge.
The app was developed in short iterations, with regular releases to stakeholders through Test Flight, and incorporating the feedback into the next iteration of development. A lightweight agile approach which centred on Trello allowed our team and the client to clearly see progress and the current project status.
