Mobile Website and Application Usability Guidelines
Research shows that mobile websites and apps are becoming a large source of interaction with you and your business, but often contain major usability problems. A well designed mobile application can provide pertinent information to mobile users, through new forms of interaction (such as tapping, swiping, gestures, and notifications). Usability research can help prioritize high-level tasks and goals for mobile users, helping to design a functional mobile application or website that best suits their needs.
Designing the Perfect Dashboard: Simple, Usable, Slick and Actionable
Slick dashboards can give an appealing look and feel, helping users to reengage with software or a website. However, dashboards can be difficult to design since different types of users expect different information that is relevant for their needs. A well-designed dashboard can create powerful interaction by presenting summarized data in a usable way. Usability research can help prioritize high-level tasks and goals for users, helping to design a dashboard with clear calls to action when appropriate.
Gamer Psychology – Designing Hit Video Games
What can game companies do to raise their success rate in building profitable, hit games? User experience research may be the key to raising the success rate, but misconceptions of what it entails and confusion with QA testing often leave it on the backburner.

Choosing Usability Research: Which Is Best For My Product?

Watch this webinar to discuss how usability research can improve your bottom line, with specific guidelines on choosing tests that make the most impact on the quality and performance of your product.
Designing Interactive Software and Products
What are users saying about your software or product? A recent study by Karat & Lund described savings on customer service costs, following a user-friendly redesign of a product: “an improved experience by Schneider Automation resulted in $2 million saved in call center support costs over the first 10 months after the change.” Incorporating usability expertise ensures that the final product aligns with business objectives: with increased revenue and market share, as well as happier users and better brand perception.
Making Informed Decisions About Your Website Needs
Unlike your office or shop, your website can keep you open for business 24/7, and making sure yours is running at peak efficiency is key. Unfortunately, according to a recent survey, 83% of business people believe that their website doesn’t meet their needs.
