Chagrin Falls, OH (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
Ovo Studios has released a new software product targeting user experience consultants and small usability teams. The package, called Ovo Solo, hits the shelves on February 15.
Ovo Solo is based on the same framework as the company’s flagship Ovo Logger Suite, and provides users the ability to set-up, administer, analyze, and report on usability studies. The software will retail for $499 (US).
“We’ve had a lot of really positive feedback over the years from smaller usability teams on our Ovo Logger software solution, but because of budget constraints, a lot of them were unable to purchase it. We hope that this package will meet their needs from a use standpoint as well as a budgetary perspective,” said Ovo Studios principal Scott Butler.
The software package is designed to capture a single screen and optional web camera video source and allows product usability researchers to log notes that will synch with recorded video for post-study analysis and highlight creation. Researchers can take notes in real-time on a secondary machine connected via LAN, or after the study using Ovo Solo's Log from Saved Video feature.
Ovo Solo allows researchers configure what information to collect from participants, including demographics, task timers, sub-timers, counters, checklists, and post-test questionnaires. Treatments can be customized for each participant and the software can ‘self-moderate’ the test, presenting task scenario materials and other test collateral to users via its Solo Player console. Upon completion of the test, Ovo Solo allows researchers to replay video and take notes, clean up data, and generate an HTML report. Reports are exported with automated analytics and charts which include mean time on task, task success ratings, survey response metrics, and category frequency. In addition, researchers can create highlight clips from their video files and combine them with titles, captions, voiceovers, and transitions in Ovo Solo's Highlight Reel Generator.
“We’ve made our name in the industry by providing powerful post-study analysis and we didn’t want to steer away from that. I think Ovo Solo customers will be pleasantly surprised by just how much they are getting when they buy this package,” said Butler.
Ovo Studios is offering a free 14-day trial of Ovo Solo on its website at http://www.ovostudios.com/ovosolo.
