Getting Started

Here's how we'll work together to build your custom platform:


Initial needs analysis

Mako engages in new discussions with financial institutions by determining the scope of the project and stakeholders, while gathering information about existing forms and workflows. This information allows our team to create a customized demonstration of the platform.


Custom multi-stakeholder demo

All parties involved with digital transformation are invited to participate in a demonstration catered to the needs of the institution. Here each stakeholder can ask questions about the needs of their department.


Due diligence process

Our team will engage in an in-depth due diligence process with your compliance, security, legal, operations and management team as needed.


Service Level Agreement (SLA) and legal review

Our team will work directly with your legal team to provide any additional details or documents needed to facilitate the SLA.


Configuration, testing, validation

Once both teams have validated the custom configuration, a final version is launched and training is scheduled with all stakeholders and you’re all set.
