Usability Audit

Img design
Whether you have a long-standing application or one that’s ready to launch, a usability audit thoroughly analyzes your application through a completely objective and fresh lens, like that of your users.

An audit compares your application against usability best practices and can show you what’s working and what’s not. Maybe you have a successful product (that’s great!) Or maybe you don’t. Whether it’s ensuring future success or finding the obstacles that are hindering it, our usability audit experts are here to help.

A Diagnostic Process To Determine Your Next Step

At Planet Argon, we work with you to help identify your need, clarify your budget, and determine your goals. With five steps, our experts will focus on identifying interaction pain points (and successes!), collaborate with you to prioritize issues found that may be hindering your success, and communicate solutions that can better match your users’ needs and create a more satisfying experience.

Step 1: Set A Budget Or Time Box

We’ll work with you to find an appropriate budget or amount of time to review and report our findings.

Step 2: Review Application Or Components

The Planet Argon audit begins! Using our checklist of best practices and standards, we’ll dig through your application focusing on the following interactions:

  • Homepage/Landing Pages
  • Functionality & Features
  • Navigation
  • Control & Feedback
  • Language & Consistency
  • Error Prevention & Correction
  • Visual Clarity

Step 3: Prepare And Deliver A Report

Once we’ve checked all the boxes in our list, we’ll compile a complete audit report, including screenshots as examples and some of our preliminary suggestions.

Step 4: Prioritize The Findings

With the audit report in-hand, we’ll discuss the findings together and help you prioritize the results based on the best value and impact for your users’ and your bottom-line.

Step 5: Draft Concepts For Improvement

Depending on your budget, we’ll take it a step further. With the audit results compiled, we can help draft and design ideas and solutions that will combat those issues we found and improve your users’ experience.
