October 9, 2019


Vancouver-based Fintech Company Onboards Development Agency Convergence to Drive Platform Evolution

VANCOUVER, CANADA, Voleo Trading Systems Inc. (TRAD: TSX-V) (“Voleo”, the “Company”), a Vancouver-based Fintech company offering a unique, self-directed social investing platform, has announced a partnership with Convergence Concepts Inc. (“Convergence”), a cutting-edge software development, design and consulting agency specializing in enterprise-class custom platforms.

The partnership will leverage Convergence’s expertise in user-experience and AI development to advance the platform features and user experience of Voleo’s iOS, Android, and web applications. The collaboration marks an inflection point in Voleo’s evolution as a business, allowing the company to shift its focus towards growth, scalability and user success.

Mark Morabito, Executive Chairman of Voleo, comments, “This partnership is of significant importance to the future growth of Voleo. With Convergence focused on the robustness of the platform, Voleo is driving forward with a clear focus on commercialization.”

A key outcome of the platform evolution is a unified codebase across all three platforms. This allows streamlined, efficient rollouts of new features and agile testing of marketing and user journeys as the business looks to scale its B2C customer base. The new react-based platforms will also support more nimble, robust integrations with future B2B partners, including credit unions and financial institutions worldwide.

“Convergence is thrilled to become Voleo's partner for product engineering and design, and it is a privilege to work with such a professional and experienced management team,” said Matthew Housser, CEO of Convergence. “We believe that the Voleo platform has huge potential in both the B2C and B2B fintech spaces, and we're excited to help evolve and scale Voleo's core platform and unique user experiences.”

Thomas Beattie, CEO of Voleo, adds, “This partnership will allow Voleo to focus on its core – growth and scalability in both the B2C and B2B partnerships. We are hearing the feedback from our customers, and we are delivering. Later this year there will be more features and developments introduced into the platform, a direct result of customer interaction.”
