The Hl Live iPad App Wins Best Financial Services Campaign at MOMAs

Thursday 22 May, 2014
HL Live for iPad, the number one funds and share trading app on the App Store in 2014, has been awarded the Best Financial Services Campaign at The Drum MOMA Awards 2014. Created for Hargreaves Lansdown by Mubaloo, the UK's leading enterprise mobility developer, the app has resulted in a drive of customer engagement and trades on mobile devices.

Chris Worle, Head of Digital, Hargreaves Lansdown ,

“The number of clients using the HL Live smartphone and iPad apps has been way above expectations. Over a quarter of a million downloads tells its own story. Mubaloo has been the ideal partner for us and this accolade is a testament to their intelligence, creativity, and ability to understand and work with the Hargreaves Lansdown business.”

After successfully designing and developing one of the first ever live trading apps on smartphone for Hargreaves Lansdown, Mubaloo was asked to extend their offering by building a brand new iPad app. The decision to move to iPad was based on customer feedback as visits to the HL website from iPads have increased more than 17-fold in the last 2 years. The app, which went live in December 2013, was downloaded 27,500 times in its first week and accounted for 2.3% of all trades.

The HL Live iPad app by Mubaloo is a customisable live investment trading app that enables users to manage their accounts, as well as place share and fund trades quickly and easily. The iPad app gives users another channel to manage their stocks and funds and find out up to date information about the financial marketplace. Users are also able to create a more personalised experience within the app by choosing their own tiles of information in order of relevancy.

Mark Mason, CEO and Founder, Mubaloo,

“HL Live for iPad was designed to be the easiest to use financial services trading app on the market. There is a huge amount of data and information being fed into the app, which needed to be displayed in a way that any user can access. The app has remained in the top 10 free finance apps on the App Store and is actively being used by non-Hargreaves clients as the go-to place for financial information.”

The MOMAs (marketing on mobile awards), organised by The Drum, identify all of the great work being done in mobile and awards those who are delivering effective strategies and campaigns. Here is the video which supported the award entry http://youtu.be/TJ71LxUx3-k

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
