The Story

Since 2009, Paga has built a safe and simple financial ecosystem enabling people to digitally send and receive money throughout Nigeria and other developing countries. After their 2017 initial market launch, Paga approached AgilityIO with a desire to improve the user experience for their mobile app.

    Balancing software development of system functionalities for both native iOS and Android, simultaneously, is quite challenging. To maintain on-time deliverables, our global team of UX/UI Designers and Frontend Developers maintained seamless communication and collaboration with Paga's Backend & QA teams in Nigeria.

    Keeping a solid line of communication amongst globally distributed teams is a best practice for Agile Methodology. We value working with the client rather than for the client.

User Experience

Beginning with our Product Discovery Workshop, we collaborated with Paga's product and marketing teams to help identify new core features and areas for improvement.

During continuous, time-boxed sprints, our UX/UI Designers worked with Paga to design and implement new app features and enhancements.

We were able to simplify Paga's existing layout and workflows, rework an onboarding process despite having a lack of user instructions, and modernize visual UI components.
