Spectroscopy Quality Control App Web Application

Challenge

Create a User Interface for the HORIZON MB™ FT-IR Software that facilitates the acquisition, processing, analysis of various samples, and managing results.

Re-thinking the Information Architecture

Re-thinking the Information Architecture

We audited the current application version, ran usability tests, and analyzed the existing user experience to determine which areas may confuse the user or slow down the task process. Based on our findings, we were able to revise the original layouts significantly, simplifying them and improving access to all application features. We also turned the wireframes into a clickable prototype that tested well with the beta users.

Minimalistic Design

The UI was built and developed around the goal of eliminating unnecessary elements to create an outstanding streamlined User Experience. Every UI element was examined and taken out of the design if it was unneeded for software functionality. As a result, we achieved an exceedingly clean UI while keeping it simple enough to maintain and expand.

Focus on System Status

Our research identified and divided the workflows and tasks into daily and occasional use. We also gained a unique process understanding by spending time at the ABB labs to watch the real-life process and learn how the staff interacts with the device. As a result, we could shape the UI toward users’ actual needs and meet their expectations: bold process status, high visibility from a distance, error recovery guidance, and straightforward measurement results representation.

Testimonial

Rossul worked for us on very important software to re-define the UI. They did a great and outstanding job. They are easy to work with and he took the time to analyse the user behaviour and our objectives. They really brought value to our software. We are very satisfied with Rossul’s performance.
