StraightPay is a revolutionary payment system that links businesses to customers via their mobile devices, allowing customers to make payments safer and more conveniently than with credit cards - right through their mobile phones.
For a high-availability, high-security system such as a PCI-compliant payment processor and gateway, Northgate Digital began by applying years of expertise in high-volume client/server system design to determine the optimal structure for both the transactional and analytical data schemas. At the same time, the design team created the user interfaces and functional specifications for the mobile app and web applications with wireframes, comps, navigational flows and use cases.
Using an Agile methodology, each system was developed a feature at a time in order of priority to the business; RESTful web services, a cross-platform mobile app, data schemas, and high-availability clustered web applications. Continual security and performance testing throughout the development lifecycle ensured both regulatory compliance as well as proper function and system scalability.
On an ongoing basis, Northgate Digital provides support and maintenance for the application, servers, and related infrastructure used to power the world's most innovative payment processing system.
