The team facilitated remote workshops with stakeholders to gather end-user historic insights around current understanding, usage & expectations. Our teams focussed both on pre-login and post-login experiences to understand the potential of credibility provided to users at different stages. The core focus was on these areas:
Our primary focus was to redefine a marketplace portal by re-imagining the interactions by users (SMEs) across all stages of operations. To design a business digital banking as well as a Personal Digital Banking platform that would not just be beneficial for SMEs, but would also be helpful for service providers and partners as a unique bridge to connect these user groups.
To narrow down our research insights, we relied heavily on well-structured documentation, consistently reviewed & maintained by all the stakeholders. With just a brief of expectations shared, we had to put in great effort to ensure there is an expectation match around the engagement with a thorough review of the experience desired to be explored in the define phase.
We worked on defining a problem statement to solve through design and compiled our reports on different user personas, journey maps, empathy maps, competitor analysis, information architecture, and task flows.
Based on the user stories & prerequisites, Lollypop design studio introduced exceptional & distinctive features in the banking portal.
We have an excellent design constancy in the internet banking portal that makes the users feel they are a part of the portal’s ecosystem even while browsing through the marketplace. We crafted experiences that the users felt comfortable going through with a sense of confidence and relief with consistent guidance.
