Useful documents relating to the website usability process

Here we have a number of useful documents which help to increase understanding of the benefits of usability and of the user profiling process. User profiling is an essential part of website design and development and application design and development, in order to develop a successful application.


Usability: Counting the Cost

The document also explains how the user profiling process used by Sigmer helps project stakeholders keep user awareness top of mind, resulting in successful projects that give users what they want.


Website User Profile Template

Example Website User Profile
[Adobe PDF, 58 Kb]

An example of a completed website user profile form, 'Website user profile for Nexus Business Centre'.
