David also worked at mFoundry, the mobile banking and payment company. While talking to hundreds of banks of all sizes throughout much of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, David often encountered institutions in need of objective assistance in developing and executing their mobile strategy. David also saw example after example of institutions repeating costly mistakes that other institutions had made.
David realized that banks and other businesses had little access to objective metrics and best practices information relating to mobile. Furthermore David also realized many of our ecommerce approaches to commerce need significant altering to fit the mobile context and the target device.
