User Experience (UX)

Um als Unternehmen erfolgreich zu sein, muss ein neues Produkt oder eine neue Dienstleistung intuitiv verstanden werden. Nur emotionale Erfahrungen der Nutzer bleiben in Erinnerung.

Unsere Experten im Bereich User Experience helfen Ihnen dabei, die Erlebnisse mit bestehenden oder neuen Produkten und Dienstleistungen zu schaffen oder sie zu verbessern. Dabei steht der Nutzer von Beginn an im Mittelpunkt der Entwicklung. So werden das Risiko des Misserfolgs eines Produkts und kostenaufwändiger Änderungen nach der Markteinführung verringert.

Wir liefern während jedes Entwicklungsschritts Einblicke in die User Experience – von den ersten Entwürfen und Prototypen über die Markteinführung bis hin zu Maßnahmen nach dem Launch.

Mit unserer umfassenden Expertise helfen wir Ihnen, sich durch Ihre Produkte und Dienstleistungen von Wettbewerbern abzuheben, aktuelle Marktchancen zu nutzen und die Nutzererfahrung bei künftigen Produkt- und Dienstleistungsdesigns in die richtigen Bahnen zu lenken.

Auf diese Weise schaffen Sie spannende und emotionale Erfahrungen für Ihre Nutzer und verbessern auch die Nutzerakzeptanz und Kundenzufriedenheit.

    6 design principles for a better FinTech user experience

    The pace of technology has transformed our lives in recent years. Finance is no exception. What used to be a question of “cash or credit” has given way to myriad choice. Pay for your groceries with Apple Pay or Google Wallet? Split the check with friends via cash, Venmo, Paypal, or Chase Pay? Invest with Fidelity or through an online platform such as Wealthfront? With so many options, users, especially those in the coveted 18-35 demographic demand a great experience in exchange for their loyalty. But older users should not be ignored – they have come to expect a level of professionalism and personalization from their offline bankers and financial service providers. This should carry through online. As a user experience researcher I’ve seen how providing an enjoyable, seamless experience based on a solid customer understanding leads to successful products in this marketplace. Here are some principles financial companies should keep in mind as they look to stay ahead among the ever evolving outlets for people to spend, save and exchange money.

    Technology should enable solutions that make people’s lives easier

    With a straightforward interface and easy to understand investment philosophy, Betterment has transformed the process of setting and investing in long terms goals from what can often feel overwhelming, murky, or confusing to a relatively transparent and achievable experience. How? By creating an online investment platform that combines a straightforward interface with an easy to understand investment philosophy. They’ve also used technology to enhance things internally, by weaving it into their back-end process. Betterment uses artificial intelligence to match customers’ paper checks with their accounts. By automating a formerly tedious task, they have freed their employees to do more interesting and challenging work. Think of technology as a tool to solve a problem (e.g., make investing easier), not the answer itself.

    Context is key

    Where will your app be used? Are users excited about saving for a big purchase or nervous about paying their bills? What other apps is it competing with on their phone? Across studies, users have told us that limited memory makes their phone’s home screen valuable real estate. A mobile payment app might check all of the usability boxes in testing, but if it doesn’t integrate well with your user’s favorite shopping apps or sites, it won’t add value, and will likely be deleted.

    Understand mental models

    Understanding current conventions and learning about what else your customers use and like enables you to incorporate common design patterns that make it easy for a first time user to have a seamless experience. Most people have at least one, if not multiple banking and payment apps. These inform expectations and habits for new apps which means that if you’re trying out a cool new design pattern, you’ll need to soften the learning curve with pointers on how it works. hbspt.cta.load(2405078, 'e8c45c3f-4ef7-4c3c-aff6-b1040cd0c639', {});

    Enable customers to control the interaction

    In conducting financial research, we often hear users say that they wouldn’t sign up for a financial product via mobile phone. Their perception is that financial tasks require the security and larger screen of a computer. Address this by enabling customers to begin a process on their mobile phones, when and where it is convenient, and then save progress for later completion on a larger screen. This gives users control and adds a sense of security and assurance.

    Make it intuitive

    Finance can be a difficult subject – the best sites use straightforward language to clearly explain new processes or topics without dumbing it down. Embed help links for uncommon terms make sure terms and conditions are easy to access and understand. Enable users to intuitively understand what they are being asked to do and to quickly find needed information with a clean, uncluttered design.

    But include some friction

    Somewhat unique to FinTech is the need for friction. For example, Betterment doesn’t make it especially easy to check your portfolio every day (even though some people want to) because it is better for financial health to only check periodically with a focus on the end goal. To this end, they have simple visual interface focused on progress towards a goal. We’ve watched participants spend 30 minutes struggling to link their bank account to their credit card and set up a unique password, then tell us they wouldn’t change a thing. They loved how secure the somewhat complicated process felt. Users need to trust that their information and money are in secure hands.

    User focus throughout the development process

    Successful FinTech gives users a better way to do something that might formerly have been difficult, tedious, or met with a sense of dread. It provides sense of security and control within the app that translates to feeling in control of their finances. To stand out and build loyalty in an increasingly crowded market, companies should incorporate a user focus throughout the development process. By talking to users to understand what they want and need, building products that enable customers to achieve their goals, and finally, talking to them again, watching them play with your app or experience the service and listening to their feedback, you’ll be on your way to delivering a product that wins hearts, minds, and importantly, repeat users.

    Taking an insights-driven approach to marketing smartphones

    It has been a full decade since the launch of the first iPhone, and it’s easy to forget that life used to be simple for smartphone manufacturers. Around the same time each year, consumers would wait fervently for the launch of the latest new gizmo. There was plenty of time to create hype, whether it was a large screen, water resistance, or a game-changing camera. But plenty has changed in the past decade. These days, marketers of smartphones have an increasingly tougher job. Here’s why. Not exactly “me too”. After years of playing catch-up in the technology department, smaller and newer brands have arrived while local brands are also expanding globally. Features on smartphones are becoming almost identical, therefore making it virtually impossible to stand out for having a “great product”. For example, although smartphones are priced according to categories such as mid and high range, most smartphone brands today offer a minimum full HD screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. In our POS tracking, we noticed that a majority of the smartphones purchased in ASEAN last year were phones with this screen resolution, although prices varied according to the brands. Longer is not always better. Consumers are keeping their smartphones for longer as telcos have halted short-term mobile phone contracts. This could mean that consumers are less likely to purchase new phones on a whim. Too fast too furious. With consumers keeping their phones for longer and new models being introduced to the marketplace at a faster rate, brands now have a shorter time window to effectively market their smartphones. And whilst you might think expensive smartphones might be slightly more protected against obsolescence, the reverse is true: our data in Asia shows that higher-priced smartphones have an average lifespan of just 14 months. Their cheaper counterparts? 16 months.

    What does this mean?

    A combination of all the above factors means one thing for marketers: reduced sales opportunities. This explains the trend towards short-lived advertising campaigns, focused specifically on new product launches. This also means there is less time for brands to deliver a margin. With the rapidly decreasing timelines and the stakes higher than ever, the success of your next campaign will depend on the effective use of market intelligence to communicate and market your products. To stay relevant, marketers will need to leverage all the tools at their disposal. For example, marketing mix modeling evaluates the marketing campaigns’ performance across different media channels – both online and offline. These crucial insights enable marketers to strategize and allocate the appropriate budgets to generate maximum return on investment (ROI). Research intelligence will also help to support a brand’s marketing goals in the short and long term. As the tech market is relatively mature, it makes it increasingly difficult for you to differentiate your products from those of the competition. Today, although it is still possible to promote just the features of a product, it is more effective for advertising campaigns to focus on product benefits and compelling brand experiences, to cater to “connected consumers”. As marketers, it is essential to determine what to advertise, but it is more crucial to understand how your target customers react to communications. Our research tells us that the contribution made by different media varies by industry and brands. For example, innovative tech products benefit more from digital media advertising instead of traditional media advertising. Apart from media channels, it is also vital to ensure that the format and timing of your campaign is aligned to your objectives – whether this is to boost sales in the short term or build brand equity for the longer term. In addition, through our POS Analytics, the sales impact and ROI of marketing activities can be evaluated using tracking data assets and advanced econometric modeling techniques, enabling brands to simulate the outcome of sales and marketing plans.

    Insights for marketing and sales success

    In today’s landscape, “connected consumers” are constantly seeking compelling experiences. To be successful, a product or service needs to be intuitive, usable and engaging while creating memorable experiences. With user experience research intelligence, brands can leverage user insights to improve their product design, concept and prototype, to build and sustain positive customer experiences. Additionally “connected consumers” are exposed to more advertising messages than before and have shorter attention spans. This makes it more important for brands to know exactly where, when and how to reach this group of audience. Here’s where marketing mix modeling, through a correlational analysis of sales and marketing campaign performance, can give accurate insights on synergies and ROI measurement across channels and media. By understanding exactly which of your promotions work, you have the full power to optimize your activity for each channel. Bjoern Kroog is Global Director of GfK POS Analytics.
