Mobile app built in 24 hours for banking

I have participated individually in a hackathon organized by a bank and had a concept in mind that would help bank customers chat with an advisor competent in their field.

I’ve built a platform that had a real time chat, a browser based web app that would be more suitable for Customer Support or Advisor (also a mobile app was available if they were on the go).

The pitch:

Simplifying issue resolution for customers by matching them to advisors and saving time for both sides.


I have open sourced my solution with screenshots.
