Empowering people and businesses to manage their own tips and adapt to an increasingly cashless world by building a new Fin-tech SaaS product

In a world where cash is almost ‘extinct’, there is a challenge for those wishing to give small monetary gratuities or “tips” to others.  The process was outdated, and there was a lack of an efficient and modern solution that bridged the gap between the physical act of tipping and the digital age.  Tippmee approached WeAgile, an app development agency, to design and develop a platform to solve this problem. The mission was to create a completely digital and cashless solution to tipping that’s low-cost, accessible and simple to use. The solution would need to scale internationally from the UK & EU countries to countries where the tipping culture is more prevalent, such as in the USA.  We would also need to find ways to empower the user to take control and gain more tips for work in their field, focusing particularly on low-income countries to help people generate additional income, such as Sri Lanka and India.

What we did

After thoroughly analysing the current market landscape and closely examining the competitors, we identified noticeable gaps that presented unique opportunities. With these valuable insights in mind, our team of designers and developers devised a one-of-a-kind product that fills these gaps and delivers added value to our target customers. WeAgile’s team focused on making sure the users will benefit from a seamless, innovative, and efficient digital tipping solution.

In our pursuit to create the perfect digital product, we did a series of design sprint workshops and technical workshops. These workshops were instrumental in bringing together creativity and technology. Coupled with intensive research, we determined the most cutting-edge and suitable technologies to be incorporated into the product, ensuring its scalability, especially in regions like the UK, EU, and the USA, where tipping is deeply ingrained in the culture.

Before introducing the Tippmee digital product to the public, we prioritised the validation of the product. We reached out to potential end-users and stakeholders to get feedback, ensuring that our solution was practical and user-friendly. Every positive or negative critique was factored in, refining the product to meet international standards and diverse cultural expectations, especially for countries like Sri Lanka and India, focusing on enhancing income for low-wage earners.

With the product refined to perfection, we dove into creating a robust launch strategy. Our main goal was to introduce the product to the market and ensure it experienced steady growth in its initial stages. By leveraging organic channels, we aimed to generate substantial revenue for the client. Furthermore, our strategic first wave of marketing was executed to effectively grow and captivate our target audience, ensuring that Tippmee became a recognised and trusted name in the digital tipping solutions market.

Recognising the potential of Tippmee and its global appeal, we sought investment support. Our team prepared meticulously to support the client for the first round of funding, ensuring we presented a compelling case to potential investors. This financial backing was crucial, as it would accelerate the product’s growth on an international scale, with a significant focus on penetrating the massive USA market.
