You want to know how your product performs in terms of usability and how to further improve your product's usability? The best and most effective method to find out is a test with real users. Just have a look over your users’ shoulders.
Usability testing is probably the most effective method to identify usability problems and potential for improvement of an application. We generally carry out usability tests with real users of the respective target group – both in our test studio or remotely via screen sharing. By observing the actual behavior of the users while interacting with a product we detect all important usability pain points and develop recommendations for optimization.

You would like to understand how users use your product in their everyday environment? Or your users are difficult to reach? Thanks to screen sharing, every device can become a virtual test lab – no matter if desktop computer, smartphone, or tablet. Furthermore, it doesn't always have to be a moderated usability test: many other UX methods are also suitable for remote research.

Quantitative approaches allow you to quantify different aspects of usability and user experience. They are suitable for various research questions, for example when it comes to evaluating an information architecture or to comparing two versions of a website. Thus, they are a crucial source of information for decision-making. The combination with qualitative methods provides a holistic answer to your research question.

Voice-based user interfaces can basically be tested in the same way as visual user interfaces. However, the focus of a voice-based application is on the language: in the usability test of your voice user interface (VUI), we therefore check whether the application uses the "right" language and is structured logically, while taking common dialog principles into account.

Eye tracking is a valuable instrument to measure in which sequence and how long users look at certain parts in a user interface. That way eye tracking helps us to identify which elements catch the users’ attention and which are ignored altogether. The method is especially powerful when it is used in combination with a traditional usability test or to compare different design alternatives.
