Almost a year before the startup officially launched, Nonlocal was working with its founders to prototype a proof of concept for a spend control management platform. Through that prototype, we demonstrated how advanced spend control and expense management tools could be a user-friendly experience suitable for small businesses and their bookkeepers.
With funding secured, Nonlocal was brought on to lead product design from the ground up. We began designing an MVP in direct collaboration with the founding team. As product managers, engineers, and marketers were brought on board, Nonlocal continued to be ClearSpend’s embedded product design team. Not only did we shape the design of the product, we were defining the role of design in a fast growing startup.
