The Sente Group
We improved the user experience of The Sente Group’s key product.
Usable Interface Design Boosts User Adoption
The Sente Group aids the world’s leading aerospace and defense companies in getting the most out of their testing resources. Specifically, The Sente Group’s test management solution helps those companies achieve significant capital and operating expense reductions in their test environments.
New Robust Features, Inconsistent Interface
The Sente Group had experienced success but saw potential to expand it. In particular, Vice President of Product Dennis Fuller recognized opportunity in the digital product’s interface. The product had grown sophisticated in response to customer needs, with many new features added. The more robust functionality had caused challenges for the product’s user interface.
Expert Review, Personas, Interface Standards, + More
Our work with The Sente Group began by taking a close look at the product’s interface. We offered a set of tactical recommendations to set The Sente Group on the path to a better interface quickly. To further improve the interface and to keep it consistent over time, we also recommended some deeper user experience work, including defining user needs with personas, creating user flows, and setting more design standards.
Rise in User Adoption + Lasting Guidelines
Since implementing changes to their product’s user interface, The Sente Group has noticed a boost in user adoption. More of their customers are using their product more often, which leads their customers to better manage their testing resources and to make their relationships with The Sente Group more strategic. Also, The Sente Group gained guidelines that they can use again and again.
The work we did together provided fundamental guidelines that we are able to apply to new situations as we continue to expand our tool set. It’s given me a greater appreciation for the importance of consistency in the user experience and how subtle changes can make a big difference."Dennis Fuller, VP of Product Management, The Sente Group
