Ready for the future

The independent financial services provider, HypothekenBörse AG, specializes in the mortgage business. They actively manage mortgages with a value of almost three billion Swiss francs and annually issue property loans of between 400 and 500 million Swiss francs.

HypothekenBörse AG is a successful company but they were working with an outdated software that provided no support whatsoever for new business models.

This changed with „Hypoplace“. The new portal solution links multiple data sources, so that employees and customers can see at a glance all the relevant information on mortgages, total loans, and the financing objects in question. Hypoplace‘s intuitive interface makes it a cinch
to use and integrate new functions. Requirements for the portal development also included a brief time frame (short time-to-market) and very tight budgetary constraints.

Tight budget, major impact – the milestones:

  • HypothekenBörse AG informed Zühlke of their plans and budget.
  • Zühlke analyzed business and requirements.
  • Zühlke started developing the new platform in a small team. Thanks to agile development, the customer was able to test the first prototype short after.
  • Merging a variety of data systems enabled an intuitive representation of the data. The modern interface offers private and business customers an optimal customer experience. Furthermore, new services can be easily integrated into the system.
  • Success! For HypothekenBörse AG, the new customer portal provides both a competitive advantage and a versatile marketing tool.
