FinTech Connector is an exclusive and virtual professional membership network that connects fintech start-ups and entrepreneurs with global professionals, organizations, and investors to collaborate on fintech opportunities around the world. FinTech Connector was established in 2017 and now has thousands of members in over 100 countries.
The rapidly growing community requires new tools to effectively connect with members, explore new business opportunities, and collaborate on innovative fintech initiatives.
FinTech Connector's mobile app is your day-to-day partner for fintech innovation.
While designing the mobile app for FinTech Connector, our key goal was to come up with solutions to match the following challenges:
Working together with Angel Lorente, CEO of FinTech Connector, we set an ambitious goal to design and deliver the application in an impressive 3 months! To this end, we implemented some tools and processes to facilitate the collaboration.
Cross-platform helped us reduce the time needed to complete the project. The technology of our choice was Flutter. This cross-platform language is used to build and maintain top-quality Android and iOS applications in a quick and cost-effective manner.
The first iteration of the project was focused on communication functionality. It allows members to search for new peers and communicate with them easily using the built-in app messaging feature.
This was achieved by employing a contrast between white background and intense color scheme, usually associated with business communication and professionalism.
We paid attention to intuitive navigation: users should be able to shift easily between app screens and functions. To this end, an easily accessible bottom menu was implemented. Spacing between elements is designed to increase the visibility, while each component has enough room to display information which is necessary for the user.
Dashboard view allows users to have a quick view on the latest updates. Users can scroll through the newest community members who have joined the platform or check how many new unread messages they have in the inbox.
It also provides a quick search functionality when someone is looking for a specific community member.
Effortless search for members or business opportunities - an ultimate timesaver for busy professionals. Set relevant filters and find people in your location who are interested in specific fintech initiatives.
Scroll through all historical messages or create new message threads in a flash.
Message threads with real-time messaging designed for easy and efficient communication. Add new members to the communication anytime you need it. Easy access to the member profiles helps maximise business opportunities from each conversation.
Profile view provides detailed information about each community member, including: Professional information, Fintech ecosystem, Areas of business interests
For maximum transparency, some of the sections are displayed as pills and tags, which helps highlight the key information.
