We examine the UX, so you can offer a website/app that helps the people you address better connect with you and your product.

What is an audit?

It's a process that examines the challenges people can experience using your website or app in their quest to find what they need/want. It is normally carried by a usability expert, UX researcher or UX/UI designer and  it can also include user testing.

An audit is normally the first step towards improving the user experience of a website or app.

It is used to:

- See what concepts, pages, components or interactions of the website or app need UX caring
- Understand why those fail
- Learn how deeply the flaws impact users
- Get suggestions on how to improve the flaws
- Have a complete picture of what to start solving
- Prioritise the design and development backlog

FAQs

How do I get started?
Caret Donw icon

Select the most convenient plan for you above and I will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

How long does it take to finish?
Caret Donw icon

It really depends on the number of platforms, the length of the journeys selecte by you, the number of flows within those journeys that need examination, and the number of flaws I might encounter on the website or app. In general an audit of 1-3 journeys takes on average one to one & a half weeks (7 working days).
The aproximate time of delivery is given before starting the Audit Base on an initial assessment.

What is included?
Caret Donw icon

Both audits consider a single platform, that being a website or an app.

- The Live Audit includes 1 hour examinaing your site/app pointing out the 3 most important issues to focus on and the recording of the session.

- The Standard Audit includes the examination of 4 journeys in form of a live document with video tapped first impressions, an Heuristic evaluation

Can I customize an audit?
Caret Donw icon

Yes. When you book an Audit let me know in the form comments what changes you would  like to make to the audit. Some common changes are adding more journeys or another platform to the Standard Audit or increasing the time on the Live Audit. Be aware that the customisation affects the timing and pricing of the audit.

How is a UX Audit different from user testing?
Caret Donw icon

Both UX Audits and User Testing are trying to uncover flaws and blind spots in the user interface. However the UX Audits are normally worked by an expert evaluator/s that look at the interface taking in consideration both the business objectives and the users perspective and will communicate concisely those interested. User Tests are taken by people who give feedback to specified given tasks. In some cases the Audits include user testing sessions.

Does the UX Audit include user testing?
Caret Donw icon

Not at the moment, but we are looking to create a new plan that includes it.

What is a red route?
Caret Donw icon

A red route is a highly visited journey on your website or app. If your business sells products a red route could be the process of buying a product from searching for a product, comparing between products and checking out.

How do I make changes to an order I've already placed?
Caret Donw icon

You only need to communicate with me and we will proceed to change. The change needs to be made after 48h of your order payment otherwise the change can't be made.

What is the refund policy?
Caret Donw icon
