If structures are understood, navigation is considered helpful, important features are found and users consistently find their way through the website, will be evident with qualitative tests and quantitative analysis with users and customers. There are also generally accepted standards and empirical value about Usability – their compliance will be reviewed by our experts.

Evaluation methods for for Usability & User Experience

You will get valid statements about the strengths and pain points of your system with our methods for evalution. Additionally we will offer concrete recommendations for parts of the system that have potential for optimisation. With these recommended actions, costs for personnel in customer support or optimisation of internal processes (factor “efficiency”) can be clearly lowered.

Also on the turnover-side increases are possible by implementing the recommended actions, which are expressed for example by optimising the conversion rate, positive mood of the customers or higher usage. Usability and User Experience are measurable and therefor improvable.

Services in the phase of evalution (excerpt)

Scientifically based methods (e.g. Usability test, Accessbility evaluation) and state-of-the-art technics (Eye Tracking, physiological measurements like EEG, mobile device tests) help us to evaluate your systems or products. We come back to user-based as well as expert-based methods:
