The Software House was chosen to help with developing the platform, thanks to our experience in the fintech market. The main challenge was the fact that we had to recreate existing components and make sure that the new platform will integrate seamlessly with existing online banking systems and accounts. Moreover, we had to connect with the backend part of the system, developed by mElements in-house team, without actually seeing it. Our responsibility was to build the frontend and link it to the existing core of the system.
We also designed a private npm library, which allowed to share components between the platform’s numerous services. To make deployment to Azure as seamless as it’s possible, we made use of Docker. And, last but not least, we performed thorough QA and QAA tests using the TestCafe framework. During the whole development process we had to integrate the new solutions with the existing online banking systems for corporate clients. It was a pretty demanding task, but we managed to satisfy mElements expectations – thanks to the use of aforementioned technologies and the experience of our developers.
The initial feedback was very positive and the development platform, as well as the merchant panel, are now available for the potential partners of the bank as test-drive versions, allowing third-party developers and eCommerces to test out the mElements API environment.
This way, they can be one step ahead of the competition in terms of providing solutions for eCommerce.
