BlueTape is a payment solution for material suppliers and
contractors. It covers from payment management to credit access.
Currently, small businesses have no easy way of making payments when their sub-contractors and representatives go to purchase material for the jobs. Typically What happens is that a sub-contractor goes to a supply store and when they get to the cashier to pay for their purchase, the cashier have to make a call to get the payment information from the head contractor, which is a time-consuming and inefficient process, with lots of back and forth between different actors, including the store cashier, sub-contractor and head contractor.
Lack of access to online payment solutions.
Designed the entire material suppliers
and builders app for Beta01, from conception to delivery.
To build a solution for builders and material supplier to solve the payment complications.
To create a system to make payments through an online payment solution, so the whole payment aspect of purchased can be done by a few clicks.
First, I gathered information to understand the user and the business
goals and shared the findings in an agile format to adapt the startup's
high-speed process. The following is a list of the methods I used to study
User interviews with targeted users.
Observation of the user journey without our product on the site.
Designed a "pre-launch form" in order to collect essential data about our users and be able to identify their needs and expectations in the market.
Primary Personas and their needs
To avoid having to read the card number and be on the phone
every time they want to pay for a material, they need hassle-free
Manage their payments without sharing their card information
with their employees for purchases.
Using mobile devices
Streamlining the payment process for the builders so they
don't have to contact them every time they need payment.
Maintain a directory of the client's accounts and keep track
of their bills and payments.
Using mostly Desktop
Based on the user journeys, the final solution
was to build a platform that addressed both parties' needs within
Builders application, is a mobile-based
application for builders to receive and pay invoices and apply
for LP credit and pay over time. The app helps them to see and
manage all their payment activity.
Web-Based vs Mobile App
There were 2 main reasons why we decided not
to build a mobile app and launched the Beta versions on a website.
We needed to earn users' trust before asking them to
download the app.
The technology constraints didn't allow us to release the
product as an app.

to Wireframes and prototypes.

Created Design System structures: I mentored one of the
junior visual designers to continue creating atomic
components in the design system and keeps evolving it as the
Establish a close working relationship between the
development and product teams: I included the dev lead to
the design sessions to make sure the dev team has enough
visibility into the design decisions and inform us about
the technology constraints early in the process.
Maintained a close relationship wirth the marketing
team to stay informed about the business growth goals
andstrategies and prioritize the design accordingly and
keep the language consistent.
