The Client Challenge
Spear headed by seasoned Wall Street professionals, Acquirors, a Baltimore fin-tech company, was the first truly social platform for company acquisition teams. The Acquiror team was looking for a partner to build their backend data aggregation systems, design their user interfaces, and implement their user experience front end.
The Bytelion Solution
Starting from the ground up, the Bytelion team took a lean startup approach to prioritize the platform, lay out a comprehensive plan, and start tackling the most risky pieces first. The riskiest aspect of the platform was the need to scrape/aggregate large sets of stock data from multiple sources into a unified theme. In addition to sorting through financial information, the team built out a robust parsing engine for RSS and Twitter feeds. Bytelion completed this work, deploying large scale data acquisition systems over Amazon Web Services to run 24/7. Once the data aggregation risk was minimized, the team set out building a powerful set of well designed interfaces allowing Acquiror users to navigate complex financial transactions in a few simple clicks.
