Challenge Redesign an online cloud-based (SAAS) compliance electronic document review software that assists governmental agencies, construction and manufacturing industries and come up with a way to introduce an array of new features essentially taking the UX to the next level.

Plan Viewer and Markup Tools

We designed a new version of the Plan Viewer that serves as a key element in the plan reviewing workflow, allows users, manage various plan overlays, and communicate with fellow team members and vendors.

By investing time in understanding the needs and goals of users, we are able to design a set of Intuitive markup tools that simplifies architectural plan reviews and increases user productivity. We achieved this by leveraging the existing user mental models and their experience with similar tools. As a result, we are able to create a toolset that is both intuitive and readily available exactly when users need them.

New UI Framework

To address the main problem of inconsistent UI in various applications, we have created a new library of front-end components that would serve as a framework for all current and future development. We strive to strike a balance between the different elements, their usage, and quick loading. Our framework solution minimizes the time and effort involved in the application building process and enables the introduction of new functionality down the road. The framework is optimized to satisfy the needs of the application user types and creates consistent interaction experience.

Streamlined Users Workflow

By analyzing user workflows, we are able to determine what steps need to be taken to make the workflow faster, easier, and better for the best optimum results. We established a navigation logic that reflects the functionality of products so users can intuitively access various parts of the application. By adding a dashboard as a hub for all workflows, users can access a “birds-eye view” of the system to determine what needs to be done first. This gives users the ability to easily collaborate with one another on the blueprints.
