Usability Testing

If you want to know how your target group uses your products, there is really only one good way. And that is: observing. Where do they get stuck? What doesn't work as you intended? Hike One is happy to help you. We have been testing products and services for usability for almost twenty years. These are qualitative studies. So as a rule we need less than ten participants to identify the biggest pain points, or better: the biggest gain points.

When do you test for usability?

You can use usability testing for existing products as well as for products that you are developing.

There are a few differences.

  1. With existing products you often already know where the results lag behind - based on quantitative user data such as user statistics.
    A usability test, which is qualitative, will help you collect detailed user data. This also provides you with tools for improvement.
  2. For products in development, as the name suggests, you often do not yet have a completed product to test. But this is precisely where usability testing is important because wrong assumptions have major consequences.What is needed is a prototype. Hike One can also help with that. In principle, these can be lo-fi click models. We then usually test in an iterative process.So based on the results of the test, we adjust the click model in consultation and test again. And again. Until it works for your intended target group.Adjustments are still relatively cheap. And you prevent yourself from rolling out a sub-par product at an early stage.

From absent to incidental
From incidental to structural
From structural to integral
User research is incidental and ad hoc.
Fragmented and outdated user journey maps.

Insights are not findable or accessible for every team.

No set of fixed methods.
Initiating fixed working methods.


The user journey becomes the starting point for the workflow.

Central storage of insights. Rights and access are managed.

Continuous user research, testing and implementation of improvements.
The same, interchangeable methods for collecting user data throughout the organization.

It is clear who can (and must) make the decisions.

Every product team - in all relevant chapters and departments - has the same way of working.
