The Importance of Integrating User Experience, into Your GUI Development
Embedded technology is rapidly evolving and so are user demands. Today, it is almost expected that companies offer products that share the look, feel, and functionality of smart devices. It is almost a standard. Because of this, companies will need to raise the bar in the future to offer products that appeal to their users. This means including the latest tech trends that make products more advanced and valuable while still being easy to use.
To achieve such innovative user-friendly products, we find it essential to include user experience designers in the development process. Lucky for us, we are able to do just that.
We are located alongside our sister company, Mjølner Informatics and together we form the Mjølner Group. Being in close collaboration with Mjølner makes it possible for us to offer product design teams that consist of designers, UX’ers, and developers. This way, our teams are used to mixing skills and move collectively from idea to digital product.
The role of user experience designers in the development process have become more prominent, as product development need to go further than visual thinking.
״For a product to be successful, it is essential not only to focus on the visual design. You also need to focus on user experience, as it ensures that business goals align with customer expectations. You need to create an application that aligns with the company’s entire eco system. By analyzing touchpoints that affect the overall experience of a product, you can create great user-centric experiences that stretch beyond the expected.״
