  Usability & Design - Graphic

By choosing to enhance your customer's interactive experience, you'll need a gauge or standard against which you can measure that experience. That standard, is the usability and usefulness of the interaction — to your customer.

As an example, studying the usability of your web site might examine how easy it is for your customer to learn their way around. It may look at the types and frequency of errors your customers make. It may also ask if they like using the site — or why not!

The usefulness of the site examines how successful your customer was at achieving their goals. These goals can be as varied as seeking information;  trying to complete a transaction such a purchase or registration; communicating information or perhaps simply being entertained.

Usability can have direct and significant effects on your business. One study (Rehman, 2000) revealed that over 40% of failed purchase attempts on e-commerce sites where due to difficulties during the checkout process — a usability issue.
