Defining and Informing the Complex Field of User Experience (UX)

Since launching in February 2011, MarketInvoice.com has grown rapidly, channelling over £160 million to over 500 SMEs through thousands of transactions, with funds being sourced from over 150 professional and institutional investors. The company has been praised by the press as a disruptor of traditional bank finance, and has won multiple awards, including the City A.M. “Innovation of the Year” 2012 prize.
