User Research

Design

User Research

Ideas succeed when they translate to products, services, and experiences that users love. Our approach to user research incorporates best practices in equitable design, so your technology solution is built specifically for your users.

It’s All About the User

User research is essential to creating products and solutions that customers and users love. Whether we are relying on extensive existing research, or conducting research ourselves, user research is the methodic study of target users—including their needs and pain points—so designers have sharp insights to work with and design the right solutions.

It’s Smart Business

The cost of fixing an error after development is 100x that of fixing it before development. And the top companies leading in user experience outperformed the S&P index by 35%. We use leading methods to expose problems and design opportunities, and find crucial information to inform the design of our client’s projects.

It Fits In Any Schedule

Testing with just five users can uncover 85% of usability problems, and when organizations invest in user research during the concept phase, product development cycles can be reduced by up to 50%.

What Can This Solution Do For You?

Starting an effort with quality user research will reduce risk, reveal opportunity, and minimize re-work – while also reducing development cycles, which saves critical time and money. The user research can include a testing and validation process to avoid usability problems in production.
