Usability Analysis

Efficiency of use can be a key factor that determines an app or web site popularity. Users try to avoid complicated and confusing apps and web sites. That is why eye-catching and easy-to-use products are the most successful nowadays.

 

Eliminate Time Wasting and Double Efforts

Our usability experts determine primary goals and scenarios of your product and evaluate your product based on usability standards and best practices. The evaluation reveals potential usability issues and provides recommendations on their solving.

 

Ensure Comprehensive and Thorough Analysis

In Sigma, we apply a combination of two efficient methods: cognitive walkthrough and heuristic analysis. As inputs for both methods, we gather user profile information and establish user scenarios. Using each method, we evaluate potential issues and bottlenecks assigning severity levels to each user action and interface component.

COGNITIVE WALKTHROUGH

  • Pass through steps of each scenario
  • Identify a difficulty level for each scenario step
  • Generate a list of suggestions
  • Create a combined report with issues and recommendations

HEURISTIC ANALYSIS

  • Analyze product components
  • Identify an ease-of-use level for each component
  • Generate a list of suggestions
  • Create a combined report with issues and recommendations

 

Make Your Product Intuitive and Easy to Use

A usability report provided by Sigma experts lists the identified issues and recommendations how to remove them. By implementing our experts’ recommendations, you can improve your product usability, ease of use and learning, and reduce the number of user errors.
