Business challenge

Dialog pioneered a peer-to-peer mobile cash transfer system named eZ Cash aiming to disrupt the banking market in Sri Lanka. They had developed a backend and an Android mobile app but needed the support of an external vendor to develop the iOS version of the app in no time. A fast turn-round time, reliability and adherence to the highest security standards was expected.


Calcey was chosen for the project and worked closely with the Dialog team to design and develop the iOS version of the app. Calcey also integrated the app with Dialog’s APIs required for authentication and financial transactions that formed the app’s core functionality.
