Pocketnest identified a serious gap in the wealth management market, namely that millennials were often overlooked by financial planners. They had a vision for penetrating this underserved market: build a mobile app to simplify money management for a new generation. They needed a development partner who could bring their mobile app to life.
Initially, Pocketnest began app development with a different dev shop. This vendor failed to deliver on promises, however, leaving Pocketnest in a tricky position: launch with a less than stellar product or to go back to the drawing board.
Disappointed with the progress and state of development, Pocketnest leadership knew they couldn’t launch a product they didn’t fully stand behind. They needed a new partner ASAP.
Shrine Development stepped in to build upon the existing software and continue development. Timing is key when it comes to start-up product launches and delays can be costly and sometimes even lethal. Shrine’s team was challenged with developing an exceptional product without derailing the launch timeline.
Shrine worked with Pocketnest to develop a roadmap and to ensure that progress was continuous and in-line with the original goals. Both teams committed to a shared vision and close communication, which was critical to the project’s success. Together, Shrine Development and Pocketnest were able to deliver a finished app ready for market launch.
