4Finance is a global leader in digital consumer finance, using cutting-edge technology and data to offer fast and convenient loans to customers around the world.
The client came to us to solve a recurring problem: the development process behind software releases was taking too long. We were tasked with developing a solution as a proof-of-concept of our new approach.
We conducted an in-depth analysis of existing 4finance projects and concluded that two main factors were to blame: it was taking too long to make the front-end for websites and it was hard to find developers experienced in the technological framework that was being used.
To speed up front-end development, we worked alongside the 4finance team to deeply understand the problem, the product, and the people. This investigation lead us to reorganize the multidisciplinary development teams, which improved the communication between back-end and front-end developers, thus reducing the time needed to complete the process.
Taking into account the need for more skilled developers, we researched and selected React.js as the best platform. Besides bringing in more development power, React.js allowed us to reuse more code, significantly reducing development time.
The project was a resounding success. Zaplo.dk demonstrated how work could be completed more efficiently, created better communication, and improved code structure — setting a precedent for their future projects.
