Cross-Platform Framework

Experience Omnichannel Banking

Today’s account holders want to bank when, where and how they want. Helios meets those needs by enabling a full-feature digital banking experience on any device or platform — tablet, desktop and phone. Best of all, Helios is a native cross-platform framework, which means it’s fast, stable, and device optimized.

Full-Feature Experience

Because it leverages our partnerships with digital banking providers, the Helios framework combines financial management and transactional functionality in a single, cohesive experience.

Financial Management

It also includes financial management features such as external account aggregation, auto-categorization, bubble budgets and more.

Develop once, deploy on all

Here’s how it works: We built an application layer in C++ that serves as the foundation for the entire Helios framework. We then wrote a light wrapper for each platform in order to take advantage of features specific to each device. For example, to make Helios work with the FireTV remote, we coded a section in NDK (the language specific to that device). This means that no matter what device your account holders choose, the experience is complete and cohesive.

Cross-Platform Code
Elegantly Efficient

By combining an application layer with a platform layer, we’ve create a framework that is far faster and more responsive than other cross-platform options. In addition, you save resources by not requiring a team to rewrite the entire codebase to fit each new device type that comes along.

Architecture Matters

This architecture is what gives your users the digital banking experience they’ve always wanted. It’s the ticket to attracting the next generation, winning their loyalty, and becoming their primary financial institution.

Runs on over 1000 devices.

Helios enables you to meet the needs of your account holders—no matter what device they choose. It’s the simplest way to give users a seamless digital experience across desktop, phone, and tablet. It’s so simple, in fact, that your account holders will thank you for it.

The Advantages of Native Cross-Platform

  • Fast (including load times and advanced visual effects)
  • Optimized for each device (e.g., can use FireTV remote)
  • Facilitates robust and scaleable testing
  • Looks and feels native to the device (because it is)
  • Secure (data isn't stored in a browser)
  • Works online and offline

Since Helios is built on a flexible framework and integrates with your current mobile offerings, it can fit your specific needs and become exactly what you want it to be.

From bubble budgets to bill pay, money movement to expense tracking — your private-labeled app, built with the power of Helios, can have it all.

We can also work with you and your technology partners to customize your app in many ways.
