Due to rapid growth and ambitious business goals, 4finance found themselves in a situation where they quickly needed to extend the capacity of their IT team.
Recruiting, on-boarding and training adequate IT specialists was a time-consuming and costly process and 4Finance needed a much faster solution to support their services with minimum disruption.

Enterprise Loans Platform
We worked on a project where we developed two modules for their Enterprise Loans Platform – an accounts building module for registering loans and a campaign management module for loan marketing.
The aim of the modules was to improve the ease of use and maintenance of the Enterprise Loans Platform.
This familiarity with Future Processing meant that 4finance was confident to choose us again and, in December 2016, we started to provide 4finance with a support and maintenance service.
We delivered an experienced development team consisting of back- and front-end developers and a quality assurance expert.
Initially, our role was to provide support and maintenance for all 4finance products operating in Poland. We were responsible for ensuring operational continuity – solving problems, going through change requests and for the deployment of new versions to the production environment.
With time, the organisational structure of 4finance changed and the area we support was extended beyond Poland to include Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Romania.
Future Processing‘s team has helped to maintain the continuity of the client’s services through minimised impact of individual incidents thanks to fast response and resolution times. Since the beginning of our support and maintenance service, 4finance has seen high availability of its services.
