Oranj Launched Real-Time Notifications Developed by Intern Team

Oranj, an end-to-end wealth management solution that helps independent financial advisors streamline business and create a collaborative digital experience for their clients, today announced the launch of its real-time notifications feature. This new feature enables advisors and their clients to receive critical notifications via text and email without having to log in to the Oranj platform. The real-time notifications feature is available immediately on the Oranj platform, which is free and easy to use. Plus, based on requests from advisors using the platform, a number of other features were also rolled out including an enhanced insurance dashboard, bulk tagging and new notes capabilities in client contact records

The new notifications feature was developed by Oranj’s team of four summer interns, who worked to take the project from prototype to launch. The 2019 interns were recruited from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Illinois Institute of Technology and were led by a 2018 returning intern, who served as product manager and development lead.

“Oranj conducts a rigorous recruitment to select high-performing interns with the skills and personality to harmonize with the company’s dynamic, fast-paced, team-oriented culture,” said David Lyon, founder and CEO of Oranj. “The goal of the intern program is to identify, train and potentially hire top engineering talent. During their internship, interns are embraced with company-wide support to ensure they are successful. Since the program’s launch in 2017 by our CTO Perry Moutzouros, four interns have been hired as either full-time employees after graduation or part-time employees while attending their final year at college.”
