As leaders in digital innovation, we’re constantly considering and testing the impact of new technology and fresh approaches to hone best practise, enhance user experience and grow revenues. These are some of our latest thoughts and findings:
The US-Ireland Top 50 Companies were announced at the New York/New Belfast conference at Pier A, Harbor House on Friday (June 17) honouring 50 major companies with operations in the US and Ireland. With a focus on the transatlantic operations building bridges between our two great nations, the awards laud those bringing business in Ireland to global heights and in doing so are embedding the peace for future generations.
Good user experience design delivers more than stimulating visual design. Users should move seamlessly through a product or site, getting what they need when they need it, without expend any effort. The user should get to their goal efficiently and feel positive and satisfied. They may even recognize that the organization has thought about their needs. These user outcomes and emotions deliver a great user experience, creating true customer satisfaction and brand loyalty.
