Need A Portable Usability Lab?

UX Firm can design a portable usability lab to be extremely mobile and durable, without sacrificing features and functionality. Jimmy Ginn has been instrumental in evolving the design and integration of portable usability labs for over fifteen years, and helped to create the first portable labs from which all others in the industry have been modeled. Today we incorporate a variety of technologies for increased efficiency in data capture and review.

There are times when it is advantageous, or required, to go to your client’s workplace to conduct observation of workflows, usages of your product, etc. It is this type of study that makes a portable lab solution. The UX Firm team routinely goes onsite with our own portable lab in order to get a true perspective of how certain software, websites, and hard good products are used, and most importantly, we incorporate all of the real-life distractions and interruptions that are inherent to many workplace environments.
