UX case studies

Creating a 3D templating tool for total hip replacement

This case study was done for ZimmerBiomet

This In this case study, we will delve into the intricacies of developing the next-generation product after the success of ONE Planner Hip. ONE Planner Hip, also known as OPH, is a successful template tool that allows surgeons to create a precise total hip arthroplasty plan from an X-Ray. The project’s main challenge was the development of a 3D browser-based web planner that would allow surgeons to plan hip surgeries with similar or greater accuracy.

Improving price clarity display across the funnel

This case study was done for Findhotel

This UX case study is focused on how prices are and should be displayed on the whole flow of Findhotel. From the moment that the user lands on the website and makes a search for a hotel, (or arrives from a 3rd party source) it is important for our team to display the most accurate information about the price. 

How the price of a hotel per night is broken is however a bit complicated, and several A/B tests have been performed with different solutions. This is one of the most significant ones.

Allowing users to pay later for their bookings

This case study was done for Findhotel

This UX case study is focused on giving our customers the possibility to pay later at the hotel or apartment on arrival. We theorized that we would significantly reduce the friction that our users encounter by allowing them to pay once they arrive at the property. 

While the idea in essence has a sound base. It also had some important ramifications. For instance, being able to pay later is all fine if one is able to cancel on time. However the same cannot be said about agreeing to Pay later without the possibility of free cancellation. 

This just but one issue of many that will be resolved as the feature evolves and proves its business value for the company. From the user point of view having a clear expectation of what will be paid and when is key for the long-term viability of this initiative.

Design system

The making of a design system

This case study is a collection of experiences of four separate attempts to create a design system for Coolblue, Findhotel, Twill (Maersk), and Floorplanner

This UX case study is a bit different than the others because it is not 100% customer-centric. It takes into account how to bring a design language into a system, and how it can be adopted by all the teams that make customer-facing products.

Unlike previous case studies, this study is aimed at creating a consistent design language that designers, developers, copywriters, and product owners can adopt.  

This study includes a description of the tools used to bridge the gap between design and development.

Streaming restocking decisions

This case study was done for Coolblue

This UX case study is focused on giving our customers a higher availability rate in our product portfolio.  

Unlike other studies where the focus on the conversion based solely on the customer experience. This one tackles a systematic problem in the organization through back-office application design.

Most of the study focuses on the business processes of Coolblue’s buyers who are in charge of restocking the stores and warehouses. The application that was created to manage their process better is also specifically designed for them.
