Define and design their first product; an iPad application delivering secure, mobile integrated payments for SMBs. The design mandate was to create an iPad application which could allow SMB executives to approve payments using their iPad.


MineralTree had just incorporated and the founder had identified that the way SMBs make payments was insecure and poorly serviced. He wanted to deliver a solution he could sell to banks as a white-label product.
