Our user tests can be carried out during any phase of a project – from the first prototype right through to when the app or software is already published. The usability tests show you how your future users interact with your application and what complications they encounter while handling it. This way, design and development teams can identify problems and improve the user experience before complex programming steps are undertaken.
During a usability test, current or potential users carry out specified tasks in your software or in your prototypes. All test subjects go through the same test scenarios. Additional interviews and questionnaires provide extra insights that help you to further develop and optimise your mobile app, website or software. The test subjects must correspond to the future user group exactly in order for you to be able to extract the right insights. When it comes to medical products or services related to medication, especially, “real” users are crucial for relevant results. We can recruit test subjects who are precisely tailored to your needs, thus ensuring valuable results.
Using simple paper prototypes, we answer questions about the functionality of your planned mobile app in a cost-effective way before the design process even starts.
Our observations during early ergonomics tests form an important basis for the interface design of your large touchscreens and digital signage.
Usability testing with people with disabilities is essential for products in public spaces. This way, we ensure accessibility without compromise.
By means of online tools, for example, using heat maps, we are able to provide answers as to whether your website or online shop has any weak points.
Depending on the requirements, our usability testing is carried out at the future application location (e.g., train station or hospital) or in a staged laboratory situation. All testing is supervised and recorded by a moderator and an observer.
