Advancements in Innovation within the U.S. Financial Market

The Sunwest Bank Challenge

Sunwest Bank wanted to streamline, modernize and expedite various financial market processes, including opening new accounts and applying for loans.

Luby has proven to be a valuable partner for Sunwest Bank, contributing not only to the enhancement of their portfolio but also to the seamless management of day-to-day operations. Presently, Luby oversees a portfolio of seven projects in collaboration with Sunwest Bank.

The Luby solutions integrated into this project:

Financial Innovation

Project: SNAP
SNAP is a web application that allows Sunwest Bank customers to open digital accounts in 500% faster than before. Luby participated in the conception of this product, created prototypes and wireframes to validate it with the business, development, and testing teams, and currently plays a role in day-to-day operations.

Project: Loans
Loans is an online lending platform that allows customers to apply for and track the status of loans entirely digitally, without leaving their homes. We were involved from ideation with prototypes and wireframes to product development and testing.

Project: Selfcare HSA
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a special bank account offered by companies as a benefit, where users can use the funds to cover medical expenses. Sunwest Bank identified an opportunity to improve the administration of this benefit for companies and their employees and developed a complete online platform. Luby was involved from ideation and conception to development and testing of this platform.

Project: Sunwest Bank Banking as a Service
Sunwest Bank provides banking services and products to the Homeowners Association (HOA) market. These associations establish rules and regulations to maintain a certain standard in the community.

Project: Third Party Integrations

Our cybersecurity solution ensures the security of our customers’ data and operations through integrations with key and recognized market players.

Client Review

Sunwest Bank has been a Luby client since 2017, and the Luby team has done an excellent job for the bank on various development projects. As with any software development engagement, setting expectations and having solid requirements, use cases, and test cases are key to success. Luby is certainly one of the best application development teams I’ve ever worked with (and I’ve worked with many offshore teams in my career).
