The existing solution
We engaged with Emoquo at the point of developing upon their MVP product. The technology was in place with a rudimentary UI which was being used to demonstrate the core features of the application. Our task was to create a more fluid user experience for users; inspiring confidence in an easy to use service.
Rapidly design a new mobile-first, Conversational User Interface to support new features and a much more effective user experience.
As a conversational UI, user journeys are not linear. The main challenge was to design a UI which took into account every permutation of how content is delivered to the user.
The key requirement was a mobile-first design process as most users interact via their mobile devices.
We needed to collaborate closely with Emoquo’s in-house development team to ensure that we delivered quality design solutions that were faithfully implemented in code.
“Working with Plug & Play was an interesting and positively challenging experience. They opened our minds and pushed our thinking to deliver a great result – one which we have been building on over the last year. The team were easy and enjoyable to work with and the process was clear and efficient.”
