Bringing the best user experience to guests is a daily routine &
challenge for managers and staff of the food and beverage business.
To offer an effective and enjoyable online management service (ERP) to them became our task.
The client, based on insights he discovered from the feedback of his customer base, came to us to validate hypothesis and then let us develop solutions.
The project started by taking a series of workshops with the client on board. Using exercises from Design Sprint 1.0 + principles of Job-to-Be-Done we discovered, prioritized, ideated, and decided for the solutions that were moved into prototyping and user testing.
As a challenge appeared to keep user flows for complex tasks as simple, smart as possible due to a wide variety of potential users and a variety of devices that would run the system.
Results of the workshops helped to define, validate wanted features and also brought more light into pricing strategy.
