    Understand your users with usability tests

    In a usability test, users of your service or product complete tasks based on the key use cases. 

    • Discover usability issues and problems before they affect your users by testing prototypes and test versions before launch
    • Continuously improve your services with regular usability tests 
    • Boost e-commerce sales by solving usability problems and understanding user behavior

    Improve service usability with expert evaluation

    Our experienced specialists evaluate the product or service by utilizing heuristic evaluation tools and their extensive experience. Expert evaluation is especially well suited for iterative development where quick and agile feedback is needed at several stages of service development.

    Provide accessibility for users with disabilities 

    How accessible is your service? The European digital accessibility act obliges several players in different industries to provide accessible online services and mobile applications. Our accessibility experts have extensive experience in evaluating the accessibility of services. Make your service accessible to all, including people with impairments such as vision loss, hearing loss, and age-related limitations. 

    Accessibility evaluations are based on WCAG 2.1 guidelines. We can also test services with actual users by complementing an accessibility evaluation with users from special user groups. We create a clear report with the findings and concrete suggestions for improvement.

    User and customer research increase customer understanding. User research is especially important in the early stages of service development where you’re trying to find out what your users are like, and what kinds of products or services they need.   

    • Gain valuable information about the actions, goals, needs, and use cases of your users
    • Validate ideas and concepts
    • Find focus and priority in your projects and make sure your requirements really create user value
