User Experience Audit

The experience that a user has when they visit, browse, purchase from or otherwise use your website should be a positive one.

This positive experience reinforces your company’s brand, it provides the user with confidence in your business and means they are more likely to trust your company again in the future, or recommend your products or services to a friend or colleague.

On the other hand, a negative user experience can do the opposite, undermining your business and creating doubts, frustrations and disappointment where none existed previously.

Your website needs to provide users with a good experience, which is why we have devised a focused user experience audit to test a range of factors, which effectively assess the overall user experience your website offers its users.

Examples Of What We Find During A UX Audit

1

Navigation structure that was confusing to a user, sections within menus that do not make sense, such as having the main product sections within a ‘Latest Offers’ menu.

4

Different link styles that mean users have to guess what they can click on or only find links through trial and error.

2

Pages within a responsive site that are not formatted for a mobile device.

5

Different terminology used to refer to the same information, meaning users follow links only to find they are led to a page already viewed.

3

Buttons not placed in a logical position so users have to hunt for the button to go to the next step in a checkout process.

6

Having a latest offers section that contained products that weren’t on offer.

UX Audit Reporting

As part of the user experience audit, there are two deliverables, which are:

  • Each issue found will be added to our bug tracker, which we will invite you to have access to. These issues will be in the form of recommendations to improve the user experience and any specific usability or user experience problems that we find. Each issue will contain a detailed description, with a screenshot or video highlighting the problem and a severity.
  • A report covering the areas tested and a high level view of the types of issues found and recommendations made as to improvements that can be carried out.

This reporting means that you can feed results into your development team straightaway plus receive a high level report for the CEO or Head of Department.
