We've worked with Payaca to deliver a new brand identity, website and mobile application for the service.
Product strategy • UX design • UI design • Branding • Web development (WordPress) • Front end app development (React Native)
When Payaca first approached Haio, they asked us to bring our expertise in design and product strategy. Their existing website and app were hard to use, performing poorly and lacking a brand identity. We worked collaboratively to understand the market, refine the proposition and translate that into a new brand, website and app. All with a focus on creating a seamless and cohesive user experience across all channels.
- Increased business signs up by 680%, bringing in 258 new accounts in 5 months
- Increased consumer sign up rate by 300%, up to 4% in Q1 2019 from 1% in Q1 2018
- Reduced bounce rate of website from 72% to 18%
Starting with the user
Rigorous user testing at the design phase
For us, design is all about noticing the things that will make it easier for the user. We conducted extensive research, wireframing and prototype testing with users to better understand how they would use Payaca's service.
This led to key design decisions such as creating unique landing pages for each customer segment - allowing brand messaging to remain consistent across the board but with tailored copy for individual audiences.
"Haio has brought an incredible amount of value to Payaca. Harry and the team spent time fully understanding our business, engaging with customers and building excellent user experiences across our website and mobile app. The communication was always clear and they brought a valuable external perspective which has helped bring clarity to our brand."

Finance in a flash
Creating a mobile app for trades people in the field
The Payaca app is a tool for trades people to create and send out invoices which give their customers the ability to quickly access finance to cover the cost. An app which needs to work quickly and easily in the field, we designed a product devoid of complex and unnecessary features by striving for simplicity.
Building the brand
