When launching a new application in an organization, maximizing user adoption is key. In the end, they are the ones who will use the application on a daily basis.Therefore, with every application we develop, we put the end user first. Obviously, they have their own preferences when it comes to user interfaces and functionality. A good user experience and interface (UX / UI) is crucial for succeeding in developing and implementing a new application within an organization.

UX / UI Design Sprint

To realize a good UX implementation, we start every project with a design sprint. This is a 2-day workshop together with the Product Owner and a small selection of end users of the application. They will provide all necessary information about the functionality of the new application.

During the design sprint, we will determine a long term goal for the application tailored to the different user groups. With an interactive session we will establish different scenarios and think of possible challenges. Also, our designer will start creating mockups and wireframes: examples of what the screens should look like. When the foundation of the application is determined, we will define work descriptions (User Stories) which result in a work stock (Product Backlog).

Minimum Viable Product

The next step is to determine the Minimum Viable Product (MVP),  a selection of the user functionality the first version of the application should have. The Product Backlog contains a full list of all the functionality for the application, the MVP contains only the necessary functionality. 

An experienced UX Consultant facilitates the design sprint together with a Senior Mendix Consultant, who takes care of the technical Mendix part. The UX Consultant designs the mockups/wireframes for the application. Of course, this all happens in consultation with the user groups. At the end of the day-2, we have delivered a wireframe,  a foundation regarding project requirements.

TimeSeries’ UX Consultants can also facilitate visual-design and front-end implementation. That way, you will never have a mismatch in the wireframes, designs or functionality. You know exactly what you will get after application development.
