Cresol is a financial cooperative with more than 600,000 cooperative clients and 1,877 municipalities covered in Brazil.

They partnered with Cheesecake Labs to develop a react native mobile app for Android and iOS.

The Challenge.

A reasonable sum of Cresol’s client base lives in rural areas with no ATMs around 20-40 miles away. They came to us wanting to build an app that would be a better way to withdraw cash using a network of local businesses. People would use the app to manage their accounts and scan a QR code at the supermarket checkout to withdraw money.

Designing the interface.

We added an important research layer to the design project. Our expert UX Designers personally visited one of Cresol's agencies to interview some clients.

After that, we guided Cresol on the right technology to use considering their bank's system requirements and the rural clients' needs, who have difficulty using digital products.

Design System.

We then developed a complete Design system, which will also be used for future digital products at Cresol.

QR Code Withdraw.

We developed an easy to use QR code reader to withdraw cash or use it to shop in local businesses without the need for a credit card.

Account Management.

We’ve connected the app with Cresol’s backend system so people can manage their account balances, view transactions and manage spending from anywhere.

Quick, easy and secure.

We added several extra bank features to the app, such as cell phone recharge and savings account. We also implemented a biometric reading to sign in quickly and securely with their fingerprint.

They accepted and accommodated any changes we needed.
