Interaction design - IxD

+ Hardware Device Integration


The process of defining the functional specs, interaction design, and creating hi-fidelity prototypes for task-based applications is by far my passion. I'll go on about this stuff forever, so let's jump into this project and see what I was working with.

Hardware Device Integration

+ Mobile view: quick & dirty


Defining the functional specification to integrate new hardware and functionality into an existing check cashing product was a challenge. However with the proper tools and a fundamental knowledge of the system, I was more than ready to take on the project.

The project

Integrate the Ingenico i6580 Signature PIN Pad into the existing Check Cashing application for VIP enrollment, electronic signature, and electronic receipt capture.

The result

Defining the functional specification to integrate new hardware and functionality into an existing check cashing product was a challenge. However with the proper tools and a fundamental knowledge of the system, I was more than ready to take on the project.

While the back-end development of this product integration was completed by, well... back-end developers, I worked as the product development manager to ensure that the finished product matched the original vision.

By taking the time to create an in-depth product specification including the necessary interaction design and screen-flow prototyping, the development and testing process was minimized so I could focus on maintaining the product's overall usability.
