Conception stage: Initial concept stage, we can offer a graphical suggestion of the menu structures andamp; features andamp; controls of the application may be a working prototype of the UI structure for the clients, andamp; users to react on the usability. Also this structure could be a good guideline to the developers. Development of next version: Advanced versions should have better features, improved menu structures andamp; attractive UI etc. We could help decide the features, reorganize menus, for improving the value of the application. General suggestions: Suggestions based reports for improving the overall usability of the applications. 10/25 4) Service offerings 4. UI Design:  4) Service offerings 4. UI Design User interface: The UI is the face of the application. The only means of communication between the user andamp; the application is the UI. UI menu structures have to be well organized for remembrance and locating the commands for new as well as old users. Use of graphics, icons whenever necessary could make the whole application more pleasure to use than just a serious business application. UI of the product could define the Image the product. A serious banking application should look professional, reliable. Whereas a children's or youthful chatting application could be jazzy andamp; crazy.

There is a structured method we have devised (customized for individual application) which helps the users think in a structured way to give us inputs like Basic mental model of the user before he or she uses the the application Methods like Wider andamp; shallower menus are better remembered than the narrower andamp; deeper menus. All the language used in the application screens, warnings and menu items have to be structured to make the application extremely browser friendly. 12/25 4) Service offerings Outputs from genesis could be::  4) Service offerings Outputs from genesis could be: Initial making of product brief with better user understanding Initial conceptual mockup of the application (Without functionality) Definition of information andamp; UI structures Mock ups, Prototypes of UI at various levels Final UI Design User interface specs and UI style guides Checking qualitative andamp; quantitative efficiency parameters Usability testing reports (Using the real users andamp; real tasks.)

The user wanted specific information available easily like net balance in my bank account. General addition of functions, controls Names of functions, messages on windows General usability suggestions Organizing the content of the quick tutorials and the help menu. andamp; installation process Graphics design andamp; UI development of skins Value added features watch concept displaying the most wanted information on the login. User could choose the watches like net profit as on date, net bank balance etc. Alarms andamp; reminders of low bank balance, or tax payment dates etc. 17/25 Slide19:  1. Menus reorganization Main menu headings used to be 7 initially. Namely: Company, Data, Browser, Reports, Setup, Backup, Help NEW Main menu headings Suggested are 10 . Namely: Company, Settings, Setup, Backup, View/ Details, Enter Data, View/Edit books, Browser, Reports, Utility, Help The menu structure changed from narrow andamp; deep to wide andamp; shallow. Making things more accessible. Because If User can’t see it its not there! 2. Benefits to user andamp; client: User gets a finance Secretary rather than a dumb software. User is in command of the information. Most important ‘information’ on the ‘fingertips’ Like the watches to suit users Value added features give real value. Like summery section helps future planning of the business. Also Watches concept gives present feel of business. All the messages are giving more precise information and user takes lesser time to understand and use software. Formatting options provide better readability andamp; understanding of all the vouchers User gets a feeling of more andamp; more features added to the new version. First time user can use most of the features faster than the old version.

Background graphics. Basic comprehensive search user searches for a product/service, brand, company, or person. Check what you are searching, then type in anything you remember, andamp; press search. Also search alphabetically. Basic three search fields: company, person, event. In fact we should add product/service here also. Eliminating 1 level of interaction. Three scrolling text fields keep on scrolling. They display latest info on three fields: 1. News, 2. New additions of companies. 3. Latest events. ( Events posted for this month/week/ day..) The bottom tool bar to remain constant acting as an anchor for the user for not getting lost in the application Personalization of welcome window. The user has better control over the information, Plus the UI gives a feeling of a complete resource. User is more satisfied. 19/25 3) Desktop old & proposed:  3) Desktop old andamp; proposed GUI is more graphic,elaborate andamp; attractive more information available upfront. Information displayed in a catchy way Marquee or banner recently events keep on scrolling, space for ads. Has to be present. Desktop says huge amount of information lies beneath. Upgrade the image of the service client offers. The bottom line is adding a glitter to allure the users is needed. Complete redesign of main menu saved large number of clicks foe searching the company, event, persons, as the options are available upfront.
