For the app, Mubaloo worked alongside Hargreaves Lansdown to create a new user experience, designed around the iPhone and Android devices. To achieve the level of functionality that investors require, HL Live Mobile had to integrate with a number of different APIs and data, both from third parties and Hargreaves Lansdown.
To achieve this, Mubaloo helped Hargreaves IT team to create APIs for its own systems, that would be optimised for mobile. Due to the complexities of creating a highly secure mobile app, Mubaloo and Hargreaves Lansdown spent nine months, from inception to distribution, creating the app.
Usability was core to the experience, so the app was designed around helping users complete tasks quickly, with access to comprehensive information about shares, funds, market knowledge and personalised watchlists. For Hargreaves customers, the app enables them to manage their portfolios on the move, placing fund and share investments.
