NEW YORK, November 12, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Rosbank Business is a banking application created by Rosbank for its corporate clients. The Smart Bank concept which is at the heart of the application, presents a center to solve all the banking problems and needs of the bank’s customers.

The first version of a universal application for legal persons was launched by the bank in early 2019 and covered basic functionality. Then, as the app grew in popularity with customers, the bank decided to speed up the launch of new features and chose Flutter as the technology capable of accelerating and facilitating the growth of its app.

Flutter is a cross-platform software development kit (SDK) used to build applications. The main advantage of Flutter is that it uses a single code base for Android and iOS and therefore saves up to 50% of the cost and time. This helps reduce time to market and extend market reach for each platform. Flutter also offers excellent performance and high quality animations thanks to the possibilities of Dart, a language developed by Google relatively simple and very efficient.

“We announced a call for tenders for the development of a Flutter application, then we looked at the portfolio of companies, the relevant experience and the cost. reasonable price. We’ve done a really good job as a single product team, ” Andrey Davydov, Mobile Manager, Rosbank Corporate Digital.

The design of a new application was created by Rosbank. Surf’s task was to study it from the point of view of business logic and adapt it to the format and structure of the data on the server.

Tight deadlines did not allow the backend of a new application to be developed from scratch, so the existing backend was used to run some services. To make the interaction correct and smooth, Surf has integrated a middleware server which is a layer to connect the new mobile app to both the old and the new backend.

The Surf team completed the development of the first version of the new application in 2020. The Rosbank team took the project in hand and continued to develop the application internally.

The transfer of the project from one team to another took about two months. Initially, the bank’s developers interacted closely with the Surf team by participating in reviews and releases of features based on the adjusted processes and flows practiced by Surf. At the same time, the bank was setting up CI / CD to facilitate the development process.

In 2021, the Rosbank Business app received gold as the best app for financial / insurance company by Tagline Awards, which is the largest digital competition in Europe for the most innovative and qualitative projects.
