People First Design Creates Putting People First Modern software designers often drop the buzzwords “mobile first” and “any device” when discussing the philosophy behind their products. The execution of these design philosophies are often flawed, resulting in products that work well for one platform but poorly for others or achieve functionality across all platforms with gimmicks. Frevvo believes a “people first” design philosophy is the key to creating business apps that users will actually use. Web forms can help companies save on costs related to managing, storing, reproducing and maintaining paper records. Giving employees and managers access to web forms can improve productivity, reduce mistakes and improve response times. Using web forms to manage approval workflows such as expense reports can also greatly increase efficiency. Realizing The Shortcomings of “Any Device” and “People First” An “any device” philosophy often results in developers just tacking on a few features to existing desktop programs before popping them on a tablet or smartphone, resulting in a clumsy, awkward program. Blindly following a “mobile first” approach often results in terrible user experiences – see Windows 8 on the desktop. People’s Choice With people first design, a natural user experience is prioritized. For online forms and document management, clients should be free to design their online forms and approval workflows to fit their business needs without worrying about the intricacies of devices. Let software like Frevvo ensure that the resulting user experience is pleasing and natural on all devices. Online forms software can provide an intuitive, easy form builder using which customers can focus on how people use their apps : • Automatically making icons and buttons bigger for mobile devices. • Making apps responsive to different size screens. • Making task lists easy to access on each device that people use. • Eye appeal – The application should be aesthetically pleasing everywhere. • Navigation – The application should be easy to get around, with swiping and other features for mobile devices and appropriate features for desktop devices. • Designers should be able to take advantage of the GPS, camera, and touch screen features of the device.
