User research

We carried out user research with the intention to understand the user's vision and their insight on a solution that manages the logistics of inventory. User research was conducted by interviewing people of different logistics departments and those who are in inventory management with the intention to perceive how they operate on a daily basis heading up all the projects.

Product discovery workshop

We were all geared up with the primary idea of the solution and after knowing the user's requirement, all that needed to discuss with the client was the final concept of putting together the application. A workshop, more a kind of problem-solving session, was conducted where we took in the basic need of customers regarding the project.

It included the discussion on making UI/UX more interactive, what would be the features of the application, how to keep it more user-oriented and more of such things. Our team shared the insights we gathered during the research session and discussed if we can implement things to target more audience. This overall session helped us understand the client's objective and what they wish from the solution.

Competitor Analysis
