Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Using Xamarin

For this project, we worked in a large team comprised of New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF) managers and server-side developers. NYSIF required that the original website design schema be preserved, while the app designs met specific legal and accessibility demands. NYSIF Where’s My Check and NYSIF Find My Underwriter was developed during this project.

NYSIF Where’s My Check & NYSIF Find My Underwriter

We worked on the New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF) Mobile App project from the ground up. We worked with the client to define the project requirements and high-level goals. We developed multiple iterations of the UI/UX App Designs. We used the client’s feedback to guide us to the final app designs. We took the developed designs and technically developed them into iOS and Android mobile applications using a development framework called Xamarin.

We worked with the client’s back-end team to tie the client-side app into the server-side API and database. After development was completed, we tested, debugged, and adjusted the iOS and Android mobile apps to meet the demands of the client.
