In the last two years a lot of remote workers faced challenges when they experienced IT issues and no one was around to help them with these problems.

The importance of User Experience Design in the digital workspace

You and me both use various applications throughout our day on our mobile device. May it be for personal or professional use. Have you ever noticed how a great user experience adds so much to a digital workspace?

Design is the key to a great user experience in the digital workspace. All the reponsive designs are made to simplify your journey in the application. You shouldn’t have to be a tech-savvy person to find your way around an application. Especially when you work remotely most of the time (we’re looking at you, healthcare workers and teachers!). The more a design is improved for user experience, the faster you’ll find your way around the workspace and the more time you save!

Improve the digital employee experience to prevent staff shortage

When you save time filling in data, you can use this saved time on more important (primary) tasks. This means that less people will be needed to do those primary tasks, since you saved time. As an article of CAP, The Center for American Progress, states: ‘’Better-quality jobs are associated with lower turnover, higher productivity, and less time and money spent on hiring and training new workers’’.

Improve your digital emloyee experience, boost productivity and save more time! Want to find out how? Check out our 10 tips on how to improve the digital employee experience.

What else is new?

The feature above is the highlight of this update, but we three other improvements for you:
