When building a new digital product or updating current systems, be it a website or an app, you want to ensure that your product is something that your users actually want to use – not a painful experience.
You have a million dollar app idea. But you don’t have a million dollars to get it off the ground. How can you put together something professional looking to see if others would be interested - if you don’t have any design skills?
It pays to think about UX as a project owner even before you hire a UI/UX designer. If you’re lost in what’s a great user experience for customers, then engaging the services of a UX designer might be a good idea.
Whether it’s internal software within your organisation, an app you’ve developed for Android, or even an interactive website, every piece of software that requires user interaction can benefit from user centred design.
App users are surprisingly demanding. When they click on the download button, they expect an attractive and easy to use interface, infinite updates, great customer support, full documentation, and a fast solution to whatever problem it is they are trying to solve – all of this for .99 cents or less.
Developers that focus on user centred designs tend to come up with interfaces that allow users to operate and learn more quickly. These systems are quicker to manoeuvre, simpler to understand, and less prone to errors.
Fixed price contracts can be rather tricky in a Scrum environment. Classic software development and Agile software development are very different from one another, and things that work in one environment don’t necessarily work in another.
