Success Story
DKB Code Factory

Best-in-class mobile banking apps and future-proof FinTech APIs

The DKB is one of most well-known online banks in Germany. With its 100% subsidiary, the DKB Code Factory, their goal is to improve banking with digital solutions and boost funding for sustainability-related projects. Four million customers have already placed their faith with them.

The Challenge

Despite tight deadlines and ambitious goals of this new DKB venture, the Code Factory was facing these challenges head on. Hence, they have been looking for an experienced partner to support them on the endeavor of kick-starting their new flagship banking app and FinTech API. IT Experts are more in demand than ever.

What we did

ElevateX provided a team of IT Freelancers to start new high-profile projects in several areas. In particular the mobile Android app– and backend service development.

Android Banking App

The Code Factory trusted us with hands-on development, architectural decisions, as well as guiding and growing their in-house team of app developers toward a future-proof world of natively developed banking apps with slick UI/UX and highest security standards.

FinTech API

On the backend ElevateX freelancers design, develop, and support the creation of a modern, state-of-the-art FinTech API which serves as the foundation of the banks digital service offerings.

As a result, the new banking app was released in August 2021 and marks a big milestone reached by the DKB Code Factory – in close collaboration with ElevateX and its IT-Experts.

Get it on Google Play

Since the beginning of our collaboration, the highly qualified team at ElevateX has been significantly involved in the development of our apps. With a proactive, communicative, and fully committed way of working, ElevateX has been laying an important foundation for the success of our projects. ElevateX is an ideal partner for us.
