Our Work

CLAI SaaS Product Revamp

Key Challenge

The primary challenge was the complexity of CLAI's payment systems platform. 3Leaf was tasked with understanding and simplifying this intricate system while ensuring the end product was both effective and aesthetically pleasing.

Client Profile


Sophisticated payment solutions

Situated at the nexus of financial technology and software, CLAI offers sophisticated payment solutions. Their platform, primarily serving Spanish-speaking markets, required enhancements in accessibility and user-friendliness to broaden its market appeal and reach.

3Leaf's Approach

Initial Assessment

The project began with a task analysis of the current payment system configuration process, led by CLAI’s configuration experts. This step was vital in understanding the existing workflow and identifying areas for improvement.

Strategy Development

Our strategy focused on identifying key problem areas within the legacy system. We aimed for quick, achievable wins rather than an extensive overhaul, ensuring realistic and impactful changes.

Design and Implementation

Through iterative rounds of wireframing and high-fidelity prototyping, we addressed the identified problematic areas. The focus was on transforming CLAI’s ultra-legacy software screens into a modernized, streamlined, and organized UI flow.
