LifeCents

LifeCents is a wellness platform that inspires and motivates people to improve their financial health and well-being. LifeCents’ customers range from Fortune 500 companies to government agencies, financial service providers, nonprofits and employers. Their unique approach engages people to transform information into action and leads to lasting improvements in users’ financial IQ, Habits, and Mindset.

The challenge

LifeCents had seen rapid customer growth since its inception in 2005, but their product’s robust back-end was slowed down by legacy code and a UX that didn’t satisfy the modern user.

LifeCents turned to VentureDevs to help them transform their application into a platform fit for a high-growth company. We assembled and deployed a custom scrum team to rebuild their product.

"The most valuable quality that VentureDevs exhibits is their flexibility in resolving problems and incorporating new requirements as they arise. As a growing business, it is important that we can shift focus quickly and efficiently - and VentureDevs has facilitated that need on numerous occasions. Furthermore, they are knowledgeable about each layer of our technology stack, and their ability to identify new opportunities for improvement has been invaluable as we build our application.

From a development perspective, VentureDevs has been fantastic to work with. We anticipate an ongoing relationship that will continue for the foreseeable future."

“We continue to push the boundaries of software development as we build LifeCents an innovative product. Every day we are tackling new challenges, and we are constantly learning from and improving upon best-practice software development methods.

We all bring something different to the table, but what is most enjoyable is working together with the LifeCents internal team, as one unit, to build next-level technology.”
