Together with NerdWallet’s team, Solvd’s experts:

  • Developed a new retirement calculator
    Solvd collaborated with NerdWallet’s content and legal teams and developed a proprietary formula for their retirement calculator. This formula takes many key metrics into account which include: age, current income, retirement savings rate, inflation, salary growth, etc. NerdWallet’s retirement calculator empowers their end-users to make more informed and data-driven decisions concerning the financial side of their retirement.
  • Developed an auto loan calculator
    We built a powerful tool that takes all of the guesswork out of car financing by providing users with an instant estimate of their monthly payments and total loan cost. Our proprietary Auto Loan Calculator empowers users to make more informed decisions because of our meticulous consideration of vehicle price, interest rate, down payment, sales tax, fees, and more.
  • Improved user experience through customization and personalization
    Users reported higher satisfaction with our new personalized features and customizable settings. Our personalization capability upgrades increased both user engagement and their sense of ownership. The customization options we added empowered users to tailor their projects to their individual needs and preferences.
  • Enhanced project performance
    Our optimization techniques resulted in increased project speed and efficiency. The infrastructure enhancements we implemented improved the scalability and handling of heavier user loads. The critical bug fixes and testing that we made enhanced stability and reliability. We improved the CWV statistics by using the latest technologies that allowed Google to rank NerdWallet up to higher positions.

NerdWallet’s clear vision and Solvd’s comprehensive approach helped create a partnership that helped us conquer the challenges we faced effortlessly. From streamlined processes to clear and concise communication, our cooperation flowed smoothly like a river.
