when can we help you?


Before, During, and After Crunch Time, Discovery, Time, Daytime, Night Time, Any Time

Understanding your users’ wants and needs is crucial to success, as is understanding the value your users associate with your product.

At User-View, our research techniques begin at product conception and continue throughout design, development, and launch.

The most cost-efficient time to make changes in a product or in a system is early in design. The further a product or system is in the design cycle, the more costly it is to make changes. Costs can include time, schedule, and resources.

Our research techniques can also evaluate products that are already on the market. You can learn from your competitor’s mistakes with a competitive analysis. You can gain valuable input for your next generation design.

Use our services throughout product development or use our services to conduct an independent evaluation in one phase.

In the Field, in the Lab, On Site, Off Site, Online, Offline

At User-View, we go where your users work, where your users play, and where your users live.

Understanding the user means understanding their environment. Do they work alone or in a group? Are they sitting or standing? Is it dark? Is it bright? Are they short? Are they tall? You must know your users. You must know them all.

User-View can test locally, across the United States, or internationally. We have the capability to test in the lab, in the field, or over the Internet. We can recruit participants for your study as well.
