Whitespace is a Geneva-based user experience (UX) agency servicing Swiss and international clients. Their services apply to a wide range of projects, including intranets, mobile apps, e-commerce, consumer and business applications, social advocacy, corporate websites, data visualisation tools, and more. They do work for large and mid-sized enterprises, start-ups, international organizations and NGOs, the health sector, as well as government and educational institutions.
UX FOR THE ENTERPRISE
They provide a full range of enterprise UX services that deliver value for money. On smaller projects, they offer implementation services in addition to their core UX practice. For larger and more complex projects, they collaborate with trusted development partners and your internal IT staff on the implementation portion.
They work with your IT and business teams to create intranet solutions that users “own” and feel comfortable with, thereby boosting adoption rates and increasing productivity.
Whether you’re running Microsoft SharePoint – or ECM solutions from Oracle, IBM, SAP, Adobe, Jive, or Liferay – we can help with everything from content strategy and information architecture to design, implementation, and training.
BUSINESS APPLICATIONS & DATA VISUALIZATION
Enterprises that invest in design and UX outperform their peers by as much as 228%. If your company is serious about employee productivity, then your enterprise applications and data visualization tools must adapt to fit the needs of your workforce.
From custom SAP Fiori applications, to home-grown line-of-business tools, to personalized dashboards built on Tableau, Periscope Data or Microsoft – their approach balances the users’ needs with the priorities and resource constraints of the organization.
They work with large and mid-sized enterprises to get the most out of their E-Commerce platforms – whether it’s Magento, SAP, IBM or Oracle. Despite the availability of well-established design patterns and platforms, no two online businesses are the same and there is still plenty of room for companies to use these tools sub-optimally.
Improving the search/filtering, product detail, and purchase process functionality requires thorough user research, realistic prototyping, and agile user testing, with additional measurement available via A/B testing and behavior tracking. Part art, part science – in the end, their goal is to boost your business’ bottom line.
The bigger the site, the greater the complexity. They have helped many large organizations consolidate their disparate web properties into a coherent and rationalized whole. When it comes to deep content sites, the role of information architecture and navigational structure is paramount.
They collaborate with your internal and external stakeholders to find the right balance between top-level strategic priorities and departmental goals – all the while keeping the key users at the forefront of design decisions. Their expertise covers responsive design for WordPress, Drupal, and other CMS platforms.
For many companies, mobile is a new frontier where false steps can lead to frustrated users and expensive shelfware. Developing for mobile platforms is different than building desktop applications, and for this reason they follow a number of mobile-first design practices in order to balance simplicity, elegance, efficiency, and emotion.
Their user-centered approach is highly iterative and is based on the design sprint concept popularized by Google Ventures. iOS or Android, publicly available or hosted on your company’s internal app store – they are ready to help you better serve your user population.
