Usability becomes easy and affordable - with the release of the new pidoco° Reviewer
pidoco's new rapid web-prototyping Reviewer allows companies to increase sales online and save costs in times of economic crisis
Excellent usability is a key success factor for websites, portals, and online shops. Ease of use increases user satisfaction, while an optimal navigation safely guides customers to the checkout button. This is important for business success - not only in times of economic crisis. Today, with the release of the pidoco° Reviewer, excellent usability becomes much more accessible. Companies can use the software module to efficiently perform distributed user and expert reviews on the clickable prototypes they can create using the same software. Rapid prototyping and user testing are proven and effective means for optimizing the usability of applications already during the conception phase, but only become easy-to-employ and affordable with tools like pidoco°. Such methods help many companies improve their competitive edge online.
The new Reviewer module will be available as part of the new pidoco° Advanced version, which also includes the existing pidoco° Prototype Creator, starting at 30 Euros (annual plan) per month and user. "We have spent the past several months working hard to make the Reviewer even more efficient and usable. And I'd like to thank our customers and the many experts who gave us valuable input in the process." says Volker Gersabeck, head of product development at pidoco°. The new pidoco° Reviewer includes improvements of existing functions as well as new features: Aside from a cleaner and more useable project archive, which now has a more user-friendly interface, the discussion overview was optimized and the review management made easier to work with by adding Direct Access and Direct Post features for discussion entries. The new features include fast access to individual prototype pages and a CSV discussion export function. The new pidoco° Reviewer will make working with the usability software even more efficient and convenient - and customers will benefit.
