Head of Product at Monito Joined almost 3 years ago
Exactly two years after sharing with your the 11 digital tools I use every week as Head of Product at Monito, I'm back with 7 new tools!
I think it is even truer today than it was at the time: having the right “digital toolbox” is key if you want to succeed as a startup.
The last time around, I received tons of interesting feedbacks from the community, so it would be great if you could share what are the digital tools that you couldn't do without!
If you're clients are sending you money from abroad (in another currency than you're account), then comparing your options is key in order to optimize your transfer and avoid losing money on bad exchange rates and fees. PayPal, for example, is a solution to avoid when doing international transactions.
Some mentioned Payoneer already, TransferWise's borderless account may be an even better solution, you can compare all your options at www.monito.com (I'm one of the founders of the platform).
Thanks a lot for your feedbacks, I think you're spot on with your comments.
I agree (of course) that there would be much more to do in order to create a comic book by using Prisma (or any other AI smart filter tool) than what I did in what you rightly called a proof of concept.
I got the idea of transforming my vacations photos into a graphic novel via Prisma in the middle of the trip, so it wasn't planned ahead. I did try to change the way I took pictures to better serve the story and the constraints and needs of a graphic novel, but now that I have the hindsights of actually building the story, I know that I would approach it very differently if I were to start the experience again !
Thanks! I made a typeform, where users could listen to our different names and were then asked to write down what they heard in the field below. I recruited testers via UserInput.io
You actually don't need that big of a sample for such a test, but we tested our name versus several versions of potential names, so we had a lot of results for our own name.
Thanks ! It was really insightfull to make these radios tests (and actually quite easy to do), it was a great way for us to validate our name.
Hi Cesar ! Thanks for your message. Yes, we're well aware that monito means "little monkey", although it's totally non-related to our market (Monito is a comparison website for international money transfers), we think it add a nice touch to it ;-)
Our user-tests showed us that our previous name was bad, so we changed it. To make sure not to make the same mistake again, we tested potential new names through a series of user tests.
TawiPay's new name is now Monito !
Would be great to have the opinion and insights from the Designer News community on this question.
Hotjar is one of the key tool in our Analytics / User research toolbox at TawiPay. Really enjoying the recordings feature.
Hi ! Thanks for the feedback. I am interested to hear why you think it is too many ? Concerning the homepage, do you have specific feedbacks or comments, it's always good to hear what people think !
