We conduct usability research through Web-Based Testing, leveraging online technology to evaluate the customer experience on the web, on a specific website, or of a prototype. Using online survey and task analysis, we are able to evaluate large samples of target users as they explore the web or a prototype while in their natural environment, such as their home or office. We can intercept actual visitors to your site, or invite your target sample via email or through a panel provider. Below are our Web-Based Testing solutions:
