Global investment bank.
Our client required advice, design and the development of an application to allow access to its FX, Fixed Income, Equity and Quant Strategies research on mobile devices.
The rapid increase in popularity of iPhone and iPad devices within the investment banking community, (and the perception that their brand image would be eroded if they were left behind) combined with calls from senior internal staff for iPhone support prompted demand for a mobile version of the research portal.
Following on from our strategy advice and architecture consultancy our client decided to develop an application for both the iPhone and the iPad.
The advisory team consisted of Scott Logic consultants with expertise in the mobile application space.
