Why is UI/UX important?
What is it about certain websites that you find appealing and want to re-visit? Is it the simplicity, intuitive design or just that it is easy to use?
If you optimise your systems using UI/UX, you are likely to have an advantage over your competitors. Users are more likely to engage if the technology is intuitively easy to navigate.
Your customers expect products to be user friendly and appealing. User interface design (UI) and user experience (UX) is the way to do this. UI relates to the look, feel, presentation and interactivity of the product. UX optimizes the interactivity and flow by using evidence-based research.
Are your systems suffering from user experience failures? Does your website have a high bounce rate? Do your staff need to deal with complaints from customers?
Neglecting UI/UX when working on websites, software and technology will cause frustration in the long run. Are you prepared to lose customers or staff due to frustration?
UI/UX must be taken into consideration during the early stages of development. Use UI/UX to research how your product can serve the needs of your audience in abetter way. Make sure that your product is convenient, accessible and valuable to its consumers.
Engaged customers means more profit. Engaged staff means more efficient work.
