User-Centered Design

6 usercentered designIn order to design services or products that meet and exceed customer and user expectations, it is necessary to take into accounts users' and customers’ needs and requirements, as well as factors that affect their interactions with services and products.

For service and product design efforts, it is vital to know what steps a user takes during his/her interaction with a product or system in order to perform a task or achieve goals. In other words, it is important to understand the progression of actions taken by the users and what he or she expects or needs at each point in order to be able to successfully interact with the product and to achieve goals. This exploration of the user needs and requirements allows us to determine design specifications and features of user-friendly products and services.

End-user perspective. EurekaFacts’ human-centered design expertise is based on a multi-disciplined approach to services and product design that focuses on end-user perspective.  This approach considers users’ needs, preferences, and limitations, as well as clients’ business objectives. In order to understand and adjust specific designs to user needs, preferences, and limitations, we implement principles of cognition, usability, accessibility, ergonomics, and anthropology.  Our approach also takes into consideration the users’ motivations, emotions and beliefs related to a task, product or application, and how the environment influence user interactions with a particular product.

Multi-disciplinary team. This approach is supported by the company’s multidisciplinary team that uses the most advanced research methods, techniques, and tools available today. The EurekaFacts team include experts in human factors, user experience, cognitive psychology, anthropology, usability, ethnographic research, sociology, qualitative and quantitative research, statistics, communications, information systems, and graphic design.
