UX Drill at InfoBeans

180EB026-4631-4A34-8F9F-C688AE3A9B75

At InfoBeans, we understand the importance of User Experience and how it can make or break the overall experience of the solution, if overlooked. It is no more a luxury but a necessity of any solution that is developed.

And it is important that the principles of User Experience are ingrained in the team members across the organization and not just a specialized group who are designated to work on UX. The UX Drill at InfoBeans is a step in that direction where newly joined folks and upto SSE or SQAE level get a chance to learn and improve their UX skills.

The first link in the chain is Heuristics Evaluation exercise.

Heuristics are a set of recognized usability principles that helps to identify usability issues in the user interface. There are 10 most widely used usability heuristics and we have exercises for each heuristic as part of Heuristics Evaluation Activity in the UX Drill.

Watch this space for the winners!

More sales, less hassle

Default Image

Every shopper loves to save money and spares no means of doing so and I am no exception. But nowadays I feel like I’m being bombarded by emails, texts & mailers, that I rarely even have time to look at and almost prefer to ignore. But sometimes I am irresistibly attracted towards saving; I bring on my stored bunch of coupons to the store & realize that they had expired a few days ago.

Now that is disgusting!!! All my plans of shopping get spoilt.

This is what happens to your customers when they receive scattered emails & gradually lose interest in your offers. They are often overwhelmed with inappropriate and untargeted offers and develop no sense of urgency towards redemption. That leads to low redemption rate and higher expiry of coupons.

Given this scenario, how are you planning to derive their interest towards your business? Without a proper strategy, it may lead to losses.

The situation is alarming!!!

So how are you going to -

Get recurring business? Increase revenue & build sales? Increase redemption? Reduce … Read More
