The Growing Importance of Usability and Responsiveness

Today, almost everyone is using technology. Smartphones, laptops, and tablet devices have made it easier than ever before to access services, applications, and content – anywhere and anytime. This new level of accessibility has driven up expectations in the business world too. Your employees have grown accustomed to the speed, responsiveness, and usability of the apps they use in their day-to-day lives.

Creating New Business Opportunities with User Experience

However, in times of big data and digitization, there is a higher risk of information overload. In order to work more efficiently, your employees need an intuitive and consistent user experience (UX) across all devices. This calls for responsive design and simplified user interfaces (UI). But in addition to simplification, a sound UX strategy enables real-time responses, fact-based decisions, and clearer visualization of large volumes of data – opening up entirely new opportunities for your business.

Investing in user experience not only increases user satisfaction – it reduces the effort required for training and minimizes errors.

User Experience (UX) – Much More Than Just User Interface Design

Thanks to advances in technology, there is virtually no limit to the modern user experience. Voice control, for example, enables users to interact with solutions in a more natural, hands-free way.

Artificial intelligence, on the other hand, opens up the opportunity to deliver smart, automated customer service through the use of chatbots. And augmented reality and mixed reality technologies could revolutionize the way people work by enhancing the physical world with digital information.

The Four Main Aspects of Modern UX Design

Simple

To reduce the risk of information overload, user interfaces should be kept as simple as possible. This increases user productivity and helps prevent errors.

Role Based

An effective user experience should be role based. Filtering out any information that is not relevant to the task at hand significantly improves usability.

Responsive Design

Today, employees work in many different ways. They demand a consistent user experience that functions perfectly no matter what device they are using.

Easy to Adapt

As user interfaces evolve at an increasing pace, backend integration can pose a challenge. Decoupling apps from the backend can increase flexibility.

Business Benefits of Effective UX Design

  • Enhanced productivity: Thanks to responsive design, you can now provide a consistent user experience on any device. This increases the productivity of your employees – whether they’re in the office, at home, or on the go.
  • Reduced errors: Usability is key. With a well-designed user interface, you can save time and reduce the risk of human errors.
  • Higher user adoption: By providing an attractive user interface that is fun and easy to work with, your employees are much more willing to embrace new solutions and technologies.
  • Lower training costs: By leaving out all unnecessary features and keeping your UX design simple, you can significantly reduce training costs. You enable your employees to perform tasks themselves, without programming skills.

UX Design: New Challenges for IT

In light of the shift towards lean and intuitive user interfaces, IT departments now need to change their approach. To ensure that your UX strategy is a success, you should consider the following challenges:

  • Personalization: To reduce complexity, the UX needs to be tailored to the actual needs of each individual user. However, this can eventually lead to a rising number of technologies and solutions.
  • Interoperability: IT infrastructure now has to be compatible with the systems and processes of your vendors, suppliers, and customers. This means your IT department no longer has full control over some aspects of your landscape.
  • Diversity: When developing a user interface, many different operating systems and devices have to be considered. This poses the question: Which platforms and standards should be used?
  • Integration: While native apps are better able to take advantage of device functionality, they require separate development processes for every platform and, sometimes, every single device.
