FA Platform is a modern web-based solution for investment management that enables investment managers to operate their business anytime, anywhere and on any device. The transaction-based, multi-currency platform is highly configurable for different business and regional needs.
Building desktop-like apps for the web
FA Solutions were investigating the best way to build an application for investment portfolio management. The objective was to find a technology that would enable FA Solutions to build desktop-like applications for the Web. Vaadin Flow was chosen as the technology for the product as it hid the complexities of web development and enabled the team to focus on the business logic while the framework handled the rest.
In late 2016, FA Solutions decided to engage with Vaadin to develop their new product, FA Front.
A highly-usable, modular & responsive web app
Vaadin consultants worked together with the domain experts at FA Solutions to design the architecture and develop the user interface of the new product. The application was built using Vaadin Flow and Spring, to enable a modular and responsive application with superb usability and a customizable look & feel. The collaboration between FA Solutions and Vaadin has since expanded and Vaadin is a key development partner for FA Solutions.
The Vaadin technology has enabled us to build applications that are efficient, desktop-like, and usable anywhere by professionals in the financial industry.
