About

Coincidently, our client has the same name as ours. The only similarity that he lacks in the name is “.guru”. Our client “DigiPay” is a leading e-wallet service provider in Ivory Coast backed by Digital Afrique Telecom (DAT).

Challenges

To make the app compatible with Multi-languages

Our client was aware of not everyone on the earth is well-versed with the English language. He knows his target audience and wanted to give them a personalized experience incorporating native language in the app.

Our client was clear with his vision. He wanted the app with the ability to introduce new languages in the application as and when required. He wanted functionality in the backend, where he simply wanted the automation of the backend.

He wanted a solution where he can operate for adding and updating any new language in the future without the help of a developer. In a nutshell, he wanted a complex process to be simplified.

Top-Up and Bill Payment Middleware Integration

The client wanted to allow his customers to enjoy more services rather than just sending and receiving money. He wanted his users to use his app for any kind of financial transaction. One of the financial transaction that every working human do is Top-up and Bill Payment.

Our client wanted his customers to pay their bills using his application. Moreover, he had a long roadmap with many more 3rd party tools to be integrated in the future. He wanted a one-time solution to add new vendors of his choice as and when required. In short, he wanted access to the driving seat of the admin panel and add new vendors by himself without the help of an expert.

Payment Gateway Middleware Integration

Another challenge client had was to eliminate the dependency of the developer whenever it is about adding the payment gateway into his application. The client wanted to offer his users multiple payment options within his app.

He wanted us to integrate payment gateway middleware to make the admin panel able enough that can allow him to remove & add new payment gateways whenever needed at his fingertips.

Solutions

Made the App multilingual

Instead of using the old school method of using Google Translate. We leveraged our expertise and made an extension in the admin panel. As Google Translate does not provide accurate translations, we built a smart extension for the app.

The extension has the entire content file. The client can download and save it offline. He can write manually the translation, make changes or addition to the content offline. And then upload the same updated file.

This simple 3 step process of download, amendments, and upload has saved client time consumption, helped him in killing the developer’s dependency, and saved costs that he would have to pay in the future without incorporating this innovative extension.

Made the admin and the app Able

Leveraging our decades of experience in development, migration, and integration. We successfully integrated the top-up and bill payment middleware making sure the structure of the app remains untouched.

Simplified the complexity of adding new vendors for the client by giving more power to the admin. Made the app and the admin both able. Now, they can dynamically integrate any 3rd party Top-up & Bill Payment APIs without the need to come to us.

This solution not only empowered the client but also has added wings that will help him reach new heights of success offering new solutions to the users.

Integrated Payment Gateway Middleware

We fulfilled our client’s requirement of integrating Payment Gateway Middleware. Our team of expert developers used a standard integration method to successfully integrate the Payment Gateway Middleware.

After integrating, our team performed a testing session to ensure that the integration is successful. Our aim was not just to integrate but to provide a seamless experience to our client’s end users.

This integration made our client receive a lifetime solution. Now, he can add any new vendor of his choice without the need for a developer in the future. The solution is not just making the client receive integration but eliminating the need for developers in the future for any Payment gateway Integration. This saved his time, energy, and money.
