What is UX Research, and What Does a UX Research Company Do?
Understanding UX Research
UX research in short, is the process of understanding the challenges of users when operating any type of product or service, and in our case its software. This process of understanding and uncovering the issues a user has with a specific software product is then used as the foundation for designing, innovating, and improving new software products for that same user and their demographic alike.
As a UX research company, we implement a breadth of UX principles, best practices, and services for our clients that drive our process in understanding how a user interacts with a piece of software as the groundwork for designing new software development products and applications.
Qualitative and quantitative data
The importance of UX research
UX research is a very interdisciplinary field that is relatively new to the overarching modern software development process. UX research takes into account large amounts of data, ranging from interview insights to demographic data - including age, profile, interests, dispositions, etc. Collecting and analyzing these large, qualitative and quantitative data allows us to understand what motivates users, what their interests are, and what software products they are already might be comfortable with.
Our UX Design Principles
Here are some of the main UX principles that we prioritize in our research and design process as a UX research company:
A global solution
A user experience for every platform
As a UX research company, we can design products that users will feel familiar with using and enjoy using for extended periods of time, whether it’s a mobile application, custom website, or internal tool for a company that is used on a daily basis by hundreds of people. Companies hire us as a UX research company to uncover insights and turn data into products that create downstream business effects, such as increased user retention, increased purchases, and other user actions that grow businesses.

Analysis & deliverables
As a UX research company, we often find ourselves explaining to customers the business value they gain by conducting UX research. We focus on demystifying UX goals to our clients by showing the value they gain from further understanding their user’s perspectives, problems and needs. Once we comprehensively understand our clients’ users and the information we collect and analyze, we’re able to produce the following deliverables for our clients:
Analysis and findings
Understanding the insights
These deliverables help both us and our clients to gain access to the final user’s needs, thoughts, pains, gains and the environment in which they make use of the products of their interst. Naturally, this vision leads us to the product design stage. Our product design processes use these UX deliverables to create new and informed product designs based on data, insights, and research.
