Paper Prototype Usability Testing

Identify UX design improvements early for an optimal user experience.

A paper prototype usability test will help you gain insights into how users use the digital product and move through their tasks as well as what language they use to describe objects and content. Our role is to help you identify where they experience difficulty because the user interface (UI) doesn’t support their needs. A paper prototype test's value is the early feedback you get from real users, so you can make the critical design changes necessary to deliver an optimal experience.

GAIN INSIGHTS

Is it useful, usable and a joy to use? Based on feedback from real users, you’ll learn how easy or how difficult your product is to use. Based on these results, we’ll recommend UX design improvements to enhance the user experience.

VALIDATE DESIGN

Learning how your users move through their tasks lets you know whether the usage scenarios the product supports are in fact what users need to accomplish. Based on our observations and analysis, we’ll help you validate your design.

Where to start

After consultation with you to understand your research objectives, we develop a testing plan and protocol that the research will follow. We recruit end users, arrange usability test facilities if needed, run and coordinate test sessions as well as record both quantitative and qualitative metrics plus behavioural observations.
TIMING
The typical duration of Paper Prototype Usability Test is 3-4 weeks.

Who we do it

Methods we use:

  • Structured one-on-one sessions with customers and users
  • Observing users as they attempt to complete tasks
  • Recording users’ interactions, qualitative feedback
  • Remote Usability Testing sessions to reach various audiences
  • Usability Testing of hardware devices and mobile applications

what you get

We provide a comprehensive report that includes analysis of test data, which identifies the root causes of usability issues as well as prioritized design recommendations for usability improvements.

A paper prototype test' value is in the early feedback you get from real users, so you can make the design changes necessary to deliver an optimal experience.

There are many advantages to delivering an optimal experience: clients can enjoy increased efficiencies, reduced costs, increased productivity, and improved sales.
