Engineering a Platform For Growth

Mobile Banking Platform for 25+ Financial Institutions


The banking industry saw a 51% increase in the use of smartphones to access bank accounts in 2016. The way people accessed their bank evolved quickly. Most users demanded the capability to make a secure deposit with a smartphone. Security was the utmost concern to make sure data would not get into the wrong hands. Looking at how the existing system functioned, it was best to build a new platform in its place. 521 Dimensions was able to redesign and rewrite the banking platform without any outages or loss of data.

Intelligent Design

One codebase, 18+ custom mobile apps

Creating a secure and scalable web platform is one thing, but the other challenge was how to build custom-branded iOS and Android apps for every different financial institution. All of this had to be achieved without creating additional repetitive processes or increasing overhead to add on customers. 521 Dimensions developed a method that automated the build of custom applications from one code base -- making the process extremely efficient and not expensive to maintain.

Achieved Through

  • Custom API Architechture
  • Standardized design patterns
  • Open-source build tools
