- My mission -
To make it easy for you to improve the user experience of your site, app or system
I've seen how many companies, especially smaller ones and start-ups, can benefit from hiring a short-term tester.
Despite this, few do. I strive to be the tester who can accommodate the flexibility and practicality needed in those project.
I want to prove that getting insight into the current state of your system doesn't have to take months or be extremely costly.
UX test stories
I've done short UX test runs with different customers in Denmark and Sweden. In every single project I've identified a large amount of bugs, flaws and UX problems. Though severe, most problem areas can be found and fixed in a matter of days or weeks.
I specialize in qualitative testing, where I use my extensive network to find test participants for interviews, workshops, and focus groups.
How well does your app perform when it leaves the comfort of the development lab? I rode the trains and took a bath to see how everyday situations effected app performance.
It's often crucial to get users' elaborate ideas and opinions on a system. But how do you manage to process that much data in a form where it's usable for the project team?
Creating wireframes for an app from users' ideas and feedback that a developer can use right away is an extensive task. I took on that task in cooperation with a company's designer.
My test process
I believe in a pragmatic approach to usability testing, meaning more doing, less discussing theory. Testing in a short amount of time calls for flexibility and adaptability. It also calls for thorough planning, and tailoring the different test methods to every single project. There is no recipe, no best practices and no re-using old reports.
During the first meeting we talk about your needs and the system that is to be tested. You might want a specific sort of test run, and I might have suggestions for you.
Every test run is different. The methods and people I use for testing, depends on what questions you have, and how much time I have for the test run.
This is the phase where I tell you what I've discovered in both written form and face-to-face. The written report is a short, easily read document with results, list of issues and suggestions to changes.
