Today’s users want to enjoy high-quality and reliable functionality with a front-end that allows them to easily use that functionality. By advancing its UI/UIX expertise, Elinext is committed to delivering successful and effective solutions that are backed by more than 15 years of software outsourcing experience.
“We develop a wide range of user interfaces: from UIs for mobile apps up to those for complex IT infrastructure management software, where it goes about millions of interconnected items and billions of pieces of information. In the latter case, data and functionality behind it must be organized and presented to the user in a well-structured way, with all the necessary information being clearly visualized and easily extractable at any timeframe,” said Alexey Shliakhouski, IT Services Director at Elinext.
There is also a good deal of psychology involved in the process of UI development. Users belonging to different age groups, professions, and backgrounds have completely different expectations pertaining to their interaction with software systems. In simple terms, the user interface of a software product is often associated with the software product itself. Therefore, in the process of UI development, it is success-critical to take into account such fundamental principles as simplicity, clarity, conciseness, familiarity, responsiveness, consistency, aesthetics, and also forgiveness.
To enhance the human-computer interaction experience for the typical user, and carve ample content into coherent sections, several options are possible: drill-down menus, collapsible panels, cascading lists, tiled windows, module tabs, accordions, pagination, and more.
“A well-thought-out user interface is paramount for positive user experience. What concerns our services, at Elinext we tirelessly put efforts into utilizing best practices in UI development. Our qualified specialists and software engineers deliver market-winning user interfaces. Frankly speaking, we belong to those geeks that strive to hone everything to the last pixel,” concluded Alexey Shliakhouski.
