Routes Planner for Bank Field Managers

Routes Planner for Bank Field Managers

Spring 2020. Lockdowns. Almost everything is remote. But some banking services 🏦still require physical contact between the bank and customer: opening an account for new customer, a new credit card, etc.

One of our clients - FinTech company that offers innovative banking solutions needed to QUICKLY build software for bank’s field managers - couriers that visit customers to provide services that can’t be provided remotely.

What did they want?

What did they want?

We were asked to develop a system that should optimally plan schedules and routes for hundreds of bank couriers, considering:

  • location of customers and desired time of visit
  • desired location of the start and end day of the courier
  • transportation of couriers by car or public transport
  • predicted and actual real-time traffic jam

Plus integration with other banking systems.

How we helped?

How we helped?
  • We quickly assembled a development team for the required technology stack
  • We selected SCRUM way of working and close collaboration with client’s product owner, and other teams with whom we should integrate our system.
  • We have designed the architecture and implemented all the logic: Route planning subsystem, Data validation subsystem, Reporting subsystem, Caching subsystem, REST API + Swagger for bi-directional integrations with other banking systems, Admin panel and rich end-user web GUI on Vue.js
  • We were using TDD, CI/CD process, and test environments with test data for all auto tests.

Results

Results
  • The system was quickly developed, deployed and started to work in the bank (our client’s client)
  • The system helped the bank to attract many new customers everyday. And the customers receive all services without visiting the bank.
  • The bank’s field customer managers are now utilized in the most optimal way: optimal route schedule for every day for each manager, monitoring performance in real-time, optimal replanning when visits should be cancelled / shifted / added
  • The system is ready for scaling for other banks - so our client will multiply the profit
