User Experience with Improving

User Experience (UX) is all about how the user interacts and experiences your product, service, and software. User-friendly products make a big difference in the success of your organization. We understand the importance of creating a quality user experience that drives adoption and utilization. A good user experience is vital to staying ahead of the curve and competing in today's fast-paced market.

Here at Improving, we work to create those exceptional experiences for our customers. Understanding the user is the foundation of how we achieve that.

Our Approach

Improving takes a 'Partner Up' approach with our customers to tap into both companies' expertise. It is important to learn as much as we can about our customers and their specific business challenges. While we bring our knowledge of Lean UX, Design Thinking, and Agile to every project, our process is very collaborative. We value the time we spend working together with our clients.

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works."

― Steve Jobs

Prototypes

Building a full design is often risky, expensive, and potentially time-consuming, especially when repeated several times. We're here to help you test your designs in a low-risk, low-cost, expedient way.

  • Greenfield projects
  • Feature Improvements to existing applications

Design

We don't limit our capabilities to designing top-notch websites and software. We're here for your other, more traditional design needs as well.

This, combined with our insight to user experience design, will take your software to the next level and ready to compete in the real world.

  • Responsive and Mobile Applications

That means our approach will be different and specific to your needs. It is important to us to spend the time discussing our approach before we start any projects with our clients.
