Building mobile forms with Device Magic’s drag and drop form builder is easy and straightforward. However, beyond the technical how-to of creating mobile forms, certain design strategies can improve the user experience of the forms you build.
The effect of UX on mobile forms is twofold. It can determine whether your staff embraces the new technology, and it can affect the accuracy of the entered information.
In an example of an enterprise software being used for power plant maintenance, a Deloitte Consulting executive told WSJ, “Only a fraction of total service requests were being tracked in the system because users were reluctant to tangle with [the software] every time they needed to enter a service request. After the company put a new front end on the system to improve the user experience, the number of service requests in the system spiked, and the plant achieved significant user adoption with virtually no training costs.”
After incorporating usability design, Deloitte reports a 300 percent increase in worker productivity, and 55 percent reduction in training time.
You probably already know that mobile forms are a better way to do business digitally. However, using good design can make the effect of the software measurably greater. In the seven design principles below, we’ll review easy ways you can optimize the design of your mobile forms.
