BEYOND THE MAP

 

The objective was to map the customer journey with the aim of improving the usability and overall experience of the designated web pages in order to drive conversion. Our first task was to discover the present critical areas of interaction and identify the pain points. In order to assure that the project rested on firm grounds, we relied on three different research techniques: mystery shopping, web analytics and ethnographic research with usability tests. All of them eventually returned very consistent results. 

In this way, we were able to mutually support our own experience with quantitative data and qualitative reports, which enabled us to understand the reasons for the poor performance of the web site as well as the clients’ implicit needs and expectations. The research provided us with numerous insights which were then used during co-design workshops to come up with solutions concerning the improvement and refinement of various aspects of UX design, product features and brand communication. 

 

A DIFFERENT KIND OF INSURANCE

 

Finally, we were able to brief the agency that authored the website with precise design requirements for three different concepts and test them with actual users. The repeated usability tests gave a clear winner - a completely different sort of web and perhaps - a different kind of insurance, too. While this exercise may have been eye-opening even for some experts, the point is that our approach enabled us to identify opportunity areas for potential disruption not only in terms of UX and UI design, but also in the domain of product and service innovation.
