The primary objective was to improve usability and the user experience on key product pages.
A series of 45 tasks in the Benchmark Study and 22 in the Validation Study were written around the following Key Challenges (identified above) in an unbiased format to reveal the current user’s experience, feedback, and a path to improvements.
Audience specific participants were recruited based on: Brand Awareness, Gender, Income, Device, and Geographic Location. The participants who made it through the first screening process were further filtered based on 3 screener questions in the Benchmark Study and 4 screener questions in the Validation Study for further participant refinement.
Benchmark Research – We ran a remote usability study with users in the target audience demographic to identify the usability pain points in the product detail page.
Interactive Prototype – Based on our benchmark learnings and client feedback we created four interactive prototype pages to be used in our validation testing on both desktop and mobile.
Validation Research – For validation, we ran a moderated usability study to validate our learnings and provide recommendations for further optimization.
Key observations and trends were compiled by UX Research Analysts. Top key learnings from the validation test are as follows (For results from each of the steps *Click Here*):
