About the National Equity Fund
The National Equity Fund (NEF) is a nonprofit Chicago-based affiliate of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation and a leading syndicator of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC). They play an integral role in creating affordable housing options, revitalizing communities, and strengthening local economies.
NEF needed assistance developing a user-friendly mobile app that allowed its users to easily navigate the locations of each of the NEF real estate projects. NEF chose the Xamarin platform for their mobile app. Optimal performance and system stability were of the utmost importance due to the dynamic capabilities the app needed to have.
Customizable mobile app
End-users of the NEF mobile application can customize the layers that will be displayed.
App speed and stability
Pumex built in optimizations to ensure that the corresponding KML files were downloaded to the user’s device on-load to ensure faster access and improved application stability.
Android or iOS functionality
Due to the choice of using Xamarin, the mobile app will operate on any platform (Android or iOS) a user chooses while only using a single code base.
Native app effects
Since Xamarin can access the phone's native API's, this results in faster development time, easier maintenance, and lower development costs.
