What is UX research?

UX research is the heart of a customer-centric product. The objective of user research services is to help us comprehend how the users intend to use the product or what are their expectations from it.

As a part of UX research, our UX researchers will:

  • Observe and communicate with the users as to how they feel.
  • Understand the user’s mental model: What do they expect and What do they want?
  • Analyse the gathered insights and identify patterns and trends.

Importance of UX research

UX research helps bridge the gap between user expectations and business deliverables.

It helps us understand how and when the product will be used and the problems it will solve. This makes the product more user-centric and in turn, reap business benefits. Its unbiased user feedback nourishes the communication gap between the user and the company.

  • Product-focused
  • Business centered
  • User-driven
  • Easy collaboration

UX Research Methods and Approaches

UX research involves several different approaches to testing. This includes both quantitative and qualitative methods.

Using quantitative methods, a UX research agency tests proposed hypotheses about the user’s behavior and attitude based on a system of numerical and statistical evidence.
