Fintechs are heralded by the media for their ability to bring new products and services to market at ultra-fast speeds, outpacing other competitors. They use advanced technology to develop personalized services that customers love, as well as create easily scalable processes and operations. From robo-investing; to lending services; buy-now, pay-later financing; peer-to-peer payments, and more, these startups’ services dominate the financial services industry. The fintech market notched nearly $6.5 trillion in revenue in 2021 and is slated to more than double in six years.

Yet even fintechs are struggling to deploy new software at pace. The reasons why vary.

Your fintech may launch a successful product, but then need to scale when consumer demand takes off. Small and nimble, your company may lack the staff, broad industry expertise, and extensive technology capabilities it requires to evolve a product line, diversify into new business areas, and make the most of your growth potential. You may need support developing mobile apps, integrating data and artificial intelligence (AI), and improving your user experience, among other imperatives.

Fortunately, there’s a solution for these challenges: partner with a proven technology partner to accelerate software development releases.

Let’s work together to increase your pace of innovation

FPT’s software development model enables you to launch new products and services at pace, moving from a proof of concept (POC) to minimum viable product (MVP) in just a few months. Our process typically involves:

  • Planning for success: We hold workshops with you to generate and refine product ideas, then develop prototypes and product roadmap strategies.

  • Developing a proof of concept: Next, we stand up a pilot team that uses onshore and offshore resources to create a value-based POC for review.

  • Turning on agile development capabilities: After that, we offer a full-scale agile software development team that works collaboratively with your product owner to develop and iterate on an MVP. After you accept the MVP, we then scale the concept into full production.

  • Transitioning to support: After the product is launched, we provide you with ongoing development, maintenance, and support to ensure that your new product can be evolved and sustained over the long-term.

FPT is the resource you need to maintain your desired cadence of product development in the highly competitive financial services industry. We can help you grow your customer base, revenues, and profit margins.
