San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
Last June 4th, Making Sense organized and accomplished a User Testing in CAECE University, Mar del Plata, Argentina -city where its development office is located- with the main purpose of improving the User Experience provided by its Email Marketing App, Doppler.
First of all, Making Sense’s team determined a scope, deciding what they were going to test. In this case, they wanted to have opinions regarding a new template editor. After that, another relevant and key aspect to determined are the participants, people who will testing the app. For this Web User Testing the team chose a group of young students between 18 and 25 years-old from CAECE University.
Once the participants and the scope were chosen, the team decided a date and time to have it done. Some of the team members that helped participants throughout this process were: Damian DOnofrio, Doppler’s founder; Sol Romeo, Marketing and Communications Manager at Doppler, Lisandro Martinez, Head of UX & Design at Making Sense and Sofia Ferragut, Business Analyst, were in charge of evacuating participants’ doubts and any kind of question. There were also some other people involved during the process; Diego Noya, Project Manager and Martin Deniro, UX/UI Designer at Making Sense.
Doppler’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Sol Romeo said “This kind of experiences allow us understand how and why an audience establishes an online relationship with our product. It also helps us resolve some other issues or things that we had to improve from our app related with content, design, structure and interaction.”
During the session, the first step was to split the group into two. Some of them were given specific details on how to use the editor and the others had the freedom to use it as they liked. The whole activity lasted an hour, and after that the team, together with the testers had a retrospective about their experience while using it.
At Making Sense, one of the most important things to pay attention at is what clients or app users think about the service they provide. Their opinion is the key to improve what the company is offering. It is necessary to keep keep them happy and satisfied, because they are the main part of any business’ success.
Making Sense always wants to hear their clients’ opinion, regarding the user experience and the interaction between the interface and their users. They apply that in everyday development. For example, their product Lander has recently won an Awwward as “The Site of the Day” and “Developer Award” for their new Responsive Website development project, thanks to the focus they put in their users. Just because no one has complained about an app doesn't mean that all the users are using it efficiently, effectively and to their full satisfaction.
Making Sense’s Head of UX & Design, Lisandro Martinez Basabilvaso remarked “We strongly believe this kind of activities with our users are the key of our success and we are sure there will be more User Testings coming in a near future.”
