This is the first blog post from the team at Invox Finance. Invox’s founding team has spent over half a decade building a successful invoice financing company, ABR Finance. Using this experience, Invox Finance is setting out to disrupt and revolutionize the outdated and inefficient, traditional Invoice Financing methods.
Earlier this week, the founders, sent their first draft white paper out to the continually growing Invox Finance team. After several months of hard work and reflection on the industry’s current state, the founders have perfected their idea. They were ready for the entire team to work together and action specific elements of the paper. These team members were made up of specialists in blockchain, digital infrastructure, UX, UI and branding.
Over the weekend several members of the founding team met in person with the Invox technical leads from Bitcoin Brisbane, Lucas and Steve, and the Invox UX and UI leads from Madewithply, Mark and Zoe.
The first day began with a morning session on the technical side of things from Lucas and Steve who presented their advice after having read the white paper. The Invox Finance team spoke about the necessary features for a system, from a minimum viable product, to the final finished product. The conversations focused on the interactions between the components within the Invox system.
The second half of the day was a workshop lead by Mark and Zoe. The core element of the workshop was the user story mapping exercise. This was a exercise in which the team followed each potential user’s interactions from start to finish within the system. User activities, user tasks, and task details were written down on stickies, and placed onto the walls sequentially. Several key details were fleshed out, and a core operational element was refined to ensure the system will function as intended.
The second day focused on ensuring that each team member knew exactly what their deliverables would be for the next two weeks. The Invox Finance team has committed themselves to meeting internal deadlines, however to ensure quality is not compromised, a discussion on timeframes was critical in the deliverables meeting. The technical team committed to creating a proof of concept before the pre-ICO launch, to show the market that the Invox Finance team has the technical expertise to execute the ideas within the white paper. After an in depth discussion on what the proof of concept will entail, as well as defining the core deliverables in the lead up to the pre-ICO, the weekend was over and the team is now ready to hit the ground running with a list of action items in the lead up to 2018.
