Embedding UX (UX Office)
Making UX an integral part of your (development) processes
Many companies are leveraging digital technologies to create, improve, or change the way they operate. However, digital solutions aren't merely adopted because they're digital, they need to match the user's expectations, needs, and mental models.
User Experience design is a way for organizations to ensure their solutions are not only usable, but add value. The integration of UX research, design, and testing is vital to the success of organizations and their digital solutions.
A better User Experience has various proven benefits for users:
- Faster adoption of new solutions (lower learning curves)
- More enjoyable solutions
- Fewer mistakes during usage
A better User Experience also has various proven benefits for organizations:
- Less customer service
- Less rework
- Higher customer loyalty
Yet Incorporating the different elements of UX such as research, design, and testing in an organization can be trickier than it sounds. We support you to make UX a part of the daily activities within an organization so that you can create solutions for internal or external users that aren't just usable but enjoyable.
