Construction Loan Management
1st Tribal Lending needed to standardize and streamline their construction loan process, especially when it came to interacting with home builders.
Loans closed (2020)
Appivo provided a custom web and mobile application to manage home builder evaluations and construction loan project management, including pay scheduling. After the initial launch, four additional releases were planned to add new features and functionality.
Appivo held numerous planning sessions to understand the business process, the people involved and the data tracked. 1st Tribal Lending was able to provide paper-based forms and fictitious examples to further clarify their requirements. Once the scope was refined and finalized, we were able to proceed with design.
The design process involved transforming a paper-based, manual business process into a series of application screens. Careful attention was paid to balance standardization with the required level of flexibility, accounting for process quirks and exceptions. The color palette was pulled from the 1st Tribal Lending website, ensuring an on-brand experience.
With the design done, the code started to fall in place. Some requirements evolved over the course of the project and were easily pulled into scope, while others were placed on hold for a future release. Knowing that there were likely additional versions ahead of us, extra effort went into making the application extensible.
