What did you find most impressive about UXDA?
They were the first company we've used for UX/UI design, and it was a perfect experience. Not only did their team give us the deliverables we wanted, but we also learned a lot about the whole process.
We learned that, besides design, we could focus on the UX and what the users want. It was a different approach than what we were used to. With this new process, we considered the feelings and necessities of the user.
We chose UXDA because of the quality of their work. It matched what we were looking for as they deliver the boldest design interfaces. The most valuable deliverable from UXDA's work was the experience of working in a project using design thinking methodology.
The biggest positive impact that UXDA gave our company, is the help to shape our mentality with the solutions we build, to stop focusing only on the functionalities and to start seeing the problem from the user point of view, understanding their pain points and feelings.
How did you come to work with UXDA?
I saw a tweet from Alex (Founder & CEO, UXDA), in which he talked about a new design for banking applications. The design was not what we'd usually find in the market. Following that, I investigated the project more while evaluating competitors using Clutch. Because of their focus on designing financial applications, I chose UXDA.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
After each delivery, we made a presentation to the local team. All of the reactions were excellent.
At the end of the project they delivered product motion video and it was quite spectacular. Everyone reacted positively and were eager to start using the system.
How did UXDA perform from a project management standpoint?
We used Google Meet for meetings, Slack for chatting, and Basecamp for file sharing. They sent us weekly progress reports. The reports detailed what was being worked on, how many hours were being dedicated, and what the next goals and deliverables would be. The whole process with UXDA's team was clear.
What challenge were you trying to address with UXDA?
The business goal was to create a new interface, keeping in mind the user experience. We already had an application that solved our business requirements, but it was more than ten years old.
How much have you invested with them?
We've invested around $75,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
Our engagement with UXDA started in January 2019, and the design project wrapped up in July.
What was the scope of their involvement?
The team at UXDA was tasked with designing the whole interface of a new application we were building. Based on our previous app, we started from scratch before UXDA took over the UX/UI design. We created the designs little by little, beginning with the wireframes.
Before the design took place, we completed a lot of research. We conducted interviews based on the questions that they sent us. They also researched our competitors and how we used our older application.
UXDA produced a motion video as well. It displayed how the application was going to function.
What is the team composition?
There were multiple people on their team with different roles. I mainly worked with their UX architect, who had a team of UX and motion designers.
