What Is APIAX?

Apiax is a regtech company that builds a lean yet comprehensive solution to transform Banking’s complex regulatory landscape into digital and centralized rules and to manage the full lifecycle of digital regulations.

PROBLEM

Financial institutions face mounting pressure from regulators.

The ever-growing list of industry regulations is met with inconsistent interpretation and implementation across jurisdictions. This wave of regulatory challenges leads to surging costs, increased business risks and a deceleration in innovation.

SOLUTION

A tech-enabled approach to digest compliance data

Apiax breaks down the regulation (financial, fiscal, data protection) into machine-readable compliance rules that can be implemented through an API into existing technology stacks, offering advice to front office roles inside banks.

Key Challenges We Faced on the Product and Tech Sides

Creating Value for All Personas

Different stakeholders have to interact with different modules of the app:

Lawyers and compliance specialists have to interpret the regulation and translate it into binary rules.

Compliance specialists inside the institutions should be able to override the interpretation whenever this clashes with internal procedures or values.

Front office bankers that consume the digital rules and get advice on how to proceed regarding a certain deal.

Complex UX Scenario

Presence of a set of constraints and rules that have a great impact on the UX. Therefore, we had to find a natural flux that does not require extensive guidance for the users of the application.

How We Did It

Step One

Product Scope

We focused on the business vision and created a comprehensive brief for the project by gathering all the research on the market, competitor benchmarks and any other necessary information. Then we met with the client in an immersive session to craft a value proposition and set the main assumptions to prove. Finally, we created the ultimate list of user stories and features necessary to prove those main assumptions within the MVP.

Step Two

Product Rationale and Tech Scope

After an immersive session with all the stakeholders, we had all the information we needed to create the ultimate list of User Stories and features necessary to prove the main assumptions in a Proof of Concept (POC). Our experts in Product, UX/UI and Tech Architecture focused on finding the answers to all of the questions raised throughout the scope preparation. On the tech side we elaborated a memorandum tackling our suggested approaches for tech stack selection, database technology and orchestration. Together with Bocconi University and AlixPartners we started defining the useful datasets and the algorithm behind the lending decisions.

Step Three

Clickable Prototype

We developed a non-functional prototype to simulate user interaction. The experience of using the clickable prototype was very much like the final product itself, this was the adequate phase to test the information architecture, the UX and most importantly to present all involved counterparts a concrete outcome.

Step Four

Final UX/UI Development

With the decisions closed in the previous steps, we went on developing the product through agile cycles.
