Background of the Field
For any company working in the software product landscape, good user experience is necessary for survival.
AFour Technologies has be practicing UI/UX design and development services since long for various software products.
Today, designing a product doesn’t just mean creating an aesthetically pleasing interface, but also demands a user-centric problem-solving approach that leads to innovation.
Keeping the end-users in mind, we assist product companies craft features that their users need and are comfortable and delightful to use.
UI/UX Design and Development: Services We Provide
Our UI/UX design and development services span across the entire software product design-timeline.
These include but are not limited to devising user experience strategy, conducting user research studies, building information architecture and designing interactive prototypes.
We have also partnered with companies to create and maintain scalable design systems for their products, or to execute a visual makeover of their existing legacy product.
UI/UX Design and Development Services: Problems Solved for our Customers
We have partnered with several customers spanning different verticals to create new or improve the existing design of their products.
One of our customers working in the oil and gas industry wanted us to create a cross-browser platform. That can be used to configure, manage, trend and report solutions as well as allow field technicians to make necessary changes to the individual configurations.
Among other things, a critical yet straightforward problem which we identified was that the truck drivers, who constituted one of the primary users of the interface, were facing troubles using the system keyboard as their fingertips were diametrically more extensive than the average user.
Our UI/UX designers designed and implemented a custom keyboard for the entire product interface, which brought in a lot of positive feedback from the end-users.
Recently, we finished off a User Research Study for a leading telecom operator, wherein we identified the usability issues in their application as well as proposed and implemented solutions to them.
We set up a dedicated usability lab where we invited people from varied demographics to conduct usability assessment for the app. As a result of this exercise, we identified more than 70 usability issues and proposed solutions to them, it eventually helped the customer increase the daily and monthly engagement on their app.
