Brief description of the company

The challenge

Banco Itaú had implemented a portal specifically designed for access from mobile phones. Given the growth of mobile devices use and the need of new functionalities, Banco Itaú decided to develop a mobile application for the two most important platforms within the country (iOS and Android).
To achieve this, Banco Itaú hired Hexacta to implement a new project with the following goals:


  • Incorporate a new technological platform for mobile
  • Migrate the existing functionality in mobile website
  • Incorporate new features to mobile home banking


The project was carried out using traditional methodology with agile management, defining iterations every 3 weeks.
Hexacta worked during the first weeks in defining the architecture, implementing and testing security POC, designing the interfaces with Itaú’s technological platform and defining the guidelines for usability and graphic design. To achieve this, we had to work tightly with the development and marketing team from Itaú.
During the following weeks, the development stage took place, with periodic demos with the client.
The main features of the application are: accounts and credit cards information, request transfers and checkbooks, see available campaigns, ATMs and branches, as well as corporate information and emergency data.
The project also includes modifications to the BackOffice platform through which campaigns, branches, ATMs and institutional content are managed.
