Usability Testing in a Nutshell

Because systems are now more complex and competition is extreme, testing for usability is critical for ensuring our products not only stand out from the crowd but even exceed our customer’s expectations.

Join Julie Gardiner as she presents usability testing techniques to help evaluate system efficiency, effectiveness, and user satisfaction.
