Agile testing: quick results, lasting impact

A financial services company that had never integrated testing in development needed to improve their existing FX Trading application. We built a better version of their app, with integrated smart testing practice.

A Scandinavian financial services company engaged us to deliver a replacement of their existing FX trading Java Applet application with a modern Single Page Application.


Building a better application

The application had to work across a range of devices, and be quicker and easier to use. It also needed to integrate with their research platform, to enable users to easily change their positions based on the market.

We wanted the app to look great and be simple and intuitive. The team at Scott Logic made things very easy for us – there was no cumbersome project planning, or long winded specification process.

The results

The project was a success: the new app is more enjoyable to use, more powerful, and fully maintainable. We couldn’t have completed the project so quickly and effectively without smart testing.

Not only was the client delighted with the success of the project, they were also thrilled to see the impact that integrated testing practice could have.

We’re proud to have helped them transform their approach to testing – a shift which will have long-term positive benefits for their future projects.

This project resulted in Scott Logic being shortlisted as a Finalist in the European Software Testing Awards 2017, in the Best Agile Project category.
