    brief

    As design partners, we were expected to analyse Niyogins business goals, and undertake extensive user research to devise an efficient and streamlined design strategy for their product offerings.

    Developing user journeys that integrate physical components with the digital ecosystem to create an true omnichannel system was our prime goal.

    An ecosystem development comes with its own challenges of looking at different user segments and then creating a unified experience guideline.

    Some of the digital artefacts we created were their Corporate Website, User Portals (Partner, Customer and Employee), Loan Origination Journey, Partner Microsite, Videos for communication

    As the model was unique it pushed us to imagine the workflows from scratch without any reference points.

    Our aim, throughout, has been to declutter an otherwise tedious journey, with cutting edge digital tools, highly customized products, and personalized intervention - all culminating into a delightful customer experience.

    Also research, continuous learning and agility were two pillars on which we based our design journey.

    With robust and modular framework provided by Liferay we were able to quickly go to market and test our hypothesis and do course corrections.

    innovation

    Since the platform and the concept itself was very new to India, it got the best out of us. With so much happening in the financial space it was hard to stay away from the typical mindset of online financial journeys.

    Innovation lied in creating a living and breathing digital ecosystem which in turn powered the business model. This creation of digital ecosystem was built inside out which allowed the business to quickly adapt to the changing market conditions.
