Challenges  

The Fintech Platform, a micro-lending service tailored for the automotive repair industry, faced several challenges that impeded its growth and efficiency:

1) Legacy System Limitations:

  • The Fintech Platform initially relied on a third-party vendor for development, which resulted in a fragmented codebase with minimal documentation.
  • This made it challenging to maintain and update the platform.
  • The existing system lacked scalability and robustness to handle increasing user demand and expansion plans.

2) Documentation Deficit:

  • The absence of comprehensive documentation for the existing codebase led to significant delays and inefficiencies in development.
  • New developers faced steep learning curves, impacting the speed of implementation for new features and bug fixes.

3) Operational Bottlenecks:

  • The team experienced operational bottlenecks due to the lack of real-time support and responsiveness from the previous vendor.
  • Integration of new features and compliance with regulatory requirements was slow, affecting the platform's competitiveness in the market.

4) User Experience Challenges:

  • The user interface was outdated and not intuitive, leading to lower user satisfaction and engagement.
  • The platform did not fully meet the needs of its retail partners, who required a seamless and efficient experience.
