CHALLENGE

Founded in Dusseldorf, identity.TM is a leading tech corporation that develops customer-oriented regional and nationwide B2B and B2C know-your-client strategies and identity management software solutions for safe and secure identification of natural persons and corporations. The services of identity.TM are certified to the highest standards available.

To keep providing the fastest identification software products, identity.TM needed to expand their in-house mobile development department. In the middle of 2018, they hired Brightgrove.

We faced the following tasks:

Establish an effective workflow and communication between the team and the client.

Clean up the legacy code and take over the mobile development cycle in compliance with German laws.

Provide development and integration of the brand-new highly secure iOS and Android apps that increase conversion rates in all possible industries from e-commerce to online gaming.

Develop new features and support the existing system based on the customer’s packaged SDKs.

SOLUTION

The first stage of our cooperation was to find 1 iOS and 1 Android mobile developer with deep senior expertise (4+ years of experience) and great knowledge of English. Our Recruitment Department accomplished this task in 35 working days, hiring and onboarding these specialists after our customer’s representatives interviewed and approved the candidates personally via Skype calls. Later, identity.TM requested to expand the team with junior developers (1+ year of experience) for both iOS and Android platforms.

A year of our work includes such results as:
• We cleaned up the legacy code by fixing bugs and reducing the overall number of code lines to make it more stable and optimized.
Also, we updated the software to Gradle 5 and AndroidX and integrated such architectural solutions as Clear Architecture; SOLID; MVP; Dependency Injection.
• Following German laws and up-to-date security standards, our team set up a continuous development and integration flow and built the first apps’ MVPs that then grew into the brand new iOS and Android apps for online identity verification and management. The features we developed include reading e-cards via NFC technology and video software development kit (SDK) integration.
• Based on identity.TM’s requests and assignments and using their packaged SDKs, our experts developed and implemented new features and provided full support for the existing system.

• Our dedicated team didn’t have the equipment to verify German identity documents, and that got in the way of developing particular features. Our experts developed a test-drive MVP that worked for scanning Ukrainian documents. After that, they visited colleagues from identity.TM’s team on-site and improved the MVP, customizing it appropriately to German laws and standards, and transforming it into a fully functional Android app. 

RESULTS

  • Selected and hired top tier mobile developers, retained all team members since 2018.
  • Set up seamless two-way communication.
  • Cleaned up the legacy code.
  • Developed new features and implemented modern UI designs.
  • Took over the creation of the iOS and Android apps, promptly finishing the development and prepping for the release of the initial applications.

WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW

identity.TM is happy with our collaboration and has no need to change the vendor, which reduces their overall expenses on direct in-house development, employment and recruitment, local taxes, administration, payroll management. Our Legal Department fully protects identity.TM’s Intellectual Property Rights. The releases are made every 3 months.
