THE CHALLENGES

UI & UX

With BookMyForex, one of the biggest challenges was to build a beautiful UI and an intuitive UX. Since BookMyForex offers a lot of solutions, we had to keep easy navigation in mind. App works with many currencies of many countries, which proposed a challenge to display effectively within the app.

API ACCESS

API was a big challenge. BookMyForex though has a web API, but it was not mobile ready. Also API data validation was a big task.

STRONG BACKNED

One of the app's important features is to display the current forex exchange rates. The rates are updated constantly so a strong backend is required to handle the server queries

PLANNING & SOLUTION

UI & UX SOLUTION

We initiated with stakeholder interviews, to understand the target audience. The next step was storyboarding followed by user-testing. A test flight was sent to more than 70 users from varying backgrounds; who provided their feedback on the prototype. Based on the feedback from regression testing and from their experience, multiple designs were created by our UI and UX expert designers for the app.Currency symbols along with country flags were used for user's convenience.

API ACCESS SOLUTION

Our Expert team worked closely with BookMyForex team to fix any mobile API compatibility issues. Our teams worked closely to make sure the user data and transactions are always carried out in a secure manner.

STRONG BACKNED SOLUTION

Our server experts worked with developers on optimization of queries. Our experts also optimized the server resources in order to provide the always updated forex rates to users, in a quick manner.
