Despite the attention consumer-based mobile apps, websites, and software get, a lot of the world depends on business software. Business software supports core functions for organizations such as productivity tasks, communication, accounting, and sales. Along with features and capabilities, the user experience of software is a key determinant of how likely users adopt new technology and recommend the product. Benchmarking is an essential step in

An increasing amount of shopping is done online. Almost $100 billion worth of products were sold online during the two-month Christmas buying season of 2016. It’s become especially easy for consumers to find the lowest price on a product. If consumers can’t find needed information, purchase a product easily, or don’t trust the brand or information on a website, they go elsewhere and may tell

Content is king. Whether it’s for books, movies, audio books, news sites, or entertainment websites. When you have good content people will come and stay. But if people can’t find the content or there’s too much friction in the experience you’ll likely lose your audience even with killer content. An increasing number of consumers now subscribe to a premium content service like Netflix, Hulu, or

A lot goes into a benchmarking study, and any of those things can go wrong. It's important to get the details right because you'll use the benchmarks to make comparisons over time and the wrong decisions can have an

Conducting a benchmark study is an excellent way to understand the quality of the website user experience. Adding a competitive component makes the benchmarking effort even more valuable. Having a comparison makes interpreting the subsequent data you collect easier to understand as you can immediately see how good or bad the experience was relative to relevant comparisons. In a comparative study, the focus becomes less

Most of us take to the skies for business or a vacation (some more frequently than others). And who hasn't had a nightmare travel experience with delays, cancellations or getting bumped? While there is much written about the airline travel experience, a lot of time is also spent researching and purchasing those airline tickets online. We wanted to get a sense of what's working and

Signing up for health insurance might have been a nightmare for many, but managing your health insurance once you get it, it turns out, isn't that easy either. In conjunction with our panel partner, Op4G, we asked five hundred participants to reflect on their most recent experience with their health insurance provider's website.

How usable is a website? While most usability activities involve finding and fixing problems on websites (often called formative evaluations), it's good practice to know how usable a website is (often called a summative evaluation).

Many software companies track and use the Net Promoter Score as a gauge of customer loyalty. Positive word of mouth is a critical driver of future growth. If you have a usable product, customers will tell their friends about the positive experience.
