The Clients request
Their current application was built on old CMS technology which was severely impacting the system’s performance.
Limited functionality meant customers could only download documents
User Experience and Efficiency
Internal team members were required to perform a variety of manual tasks including document upload one by one.
Customer Feedback through client meetings
Managers had very little control over the workflow and user management in the system
There was no way to track the state of documents.
The interface was clunky and required too much support from management for the user to navigate independently.
Support spent too much time supporting the user.
System is too slow & Clunky
The lack of an intuitive interface created too much training and handholding internally.
Planning was key to system survival
The BA team underwent an intensive discovery phase ploughing through multiple points of data, documents and security systems.
The teams recommendations included a new category system, multiple tiered user systems and Basic and premium workflow.
Another recommendation to the client was a traffic lights system for compliance with multiple states to indicate the compliance and not compliance of a document and a list of TODO’s to help the User comply within time frames.
So I went online and researched multiple design solutions for these requirements. In Conclusion we decided that a dashboard layout would suit best. The user would be able to easily navigate via a menu the multiple sections/settings within the dashboard.
The linear / table like appearance of a dashboard lends itself to large data sets that require , multiple columns and rows to be present at first view.
Before we could build …
Wireframes…and User Flows
Before we could create any UI design we need to make sure that the system flowed and that all our target metrics where resolved. Via Agile methodologies dashboard Layouts and User Flows where tested against users and client criteria.
Our base features to build upon
- A modern and intuitive user interface and customer experience
- Improved document management processes and storage in the cloud
