Sparrow Crest Marketplace Platform.
Client and idea
Sparrow Labs, Inc. is a fintech platform that helps students find the best offerings for their education financing. The idea of Sparrow Crest, in turn, was to enable third-party businesses to integrate lender networks and embed loan offerings into their websites or mobile apps.
Challenge & Goals
The main challenge our team faced was finalizing the product before peak demand for student loan services. Since this business is seasonal, we had to work under the pressure of strict timelines and evolving customer needs.
Solutions & Result
We designed a B2B Crest Portal web app that comes as a no-code student loan marketplace builder. It creates a more integrated experience for both borrowers and businesses with its array of features, including lender network integration, analytics tools, and no-code automations.
With the help of Marketplace Editor, businesses can design and customize their own student loan marketplaces without complex coding.
Members table & filtration
This feature provides users with a comprehensive overview of the student lenders available on the platform and empower them to refine their lender choices based on specific criteria.
Sparrow Crest's no-code builder includes a Chart Creation feature that allows users to generate dynamic visual representations of data related to student loans.
The Dashboard Creation feature enables users to construct comprehensive dashboards that provide an overview of key metrics and analytics related to the student loan marketplace.
The project was created according to the Waterfall development methodology. We created each part piece by piece, testing each of them iteratively and staying in close touch with the customer since the requirements were frequently changing as well.
We used Adobe Illustrator for creating icons, and Adobe After Effects for creating animations.
Chart types and states
Crest Portal enables work with complex data structures, and that’s why the lion’s share of our efforts was spent on creating custom visuals and data representations. Most of them were created using HTML/CSS and then animated with GSAP.
Sparrow Crest is a desktop-first platform since this is a B2B solution. Still, the website can be used from mobile devices as well.
