Scharf Holdings, LLC may not be experts in the field of psychology, but we know users very well and can help your company better defined your user profiles and stereotypes within your organization as well as your customer goals when interacting with your company electronically.
Whether we create a custom web or desktop application to serve your needs or help you on your way to designing your own, our expertise and experience in the field of better user experience design can help give you the upper hand in sales, productivity or other organizational and systems goals.
Usable software = Happy users
Users should feel compelled and motivated to browse to your website, use day to day productivity software or utilize other tools to get their work done. A poor user experience can not only cause loss of business or productivity, but can leave users feeling frustrated, resentful and just plain angry. A well designed user interface coupled with intuitive workflow, interactivity and positive reinforcement make for more productive and overall happier users. Great UX also keeps customers coming back time and time again to interact with your content or applications.
From internet banking, customer extranet portals, inventory management systems or other seemingly mundane web and/or desktop applications, a better user experience makes all the difference.
Accessibility, Section 508 Compliance and WCAG Standards
Here at Scharf Holdings, LLC we understand the importance of accessibility, not just from the perspective of businesses trying to conform to legal regulations or expand their customer base, but from the perspective that all users should be able to have access to any web or desktop application and not be inhibited by their disabilities. Whether users of applications are vision impaired, hearing impaired, cannot use a keyboard or cannot use a mouse, every application should be completely accessible to these users.
We are experienced developers of rich content applications, enterprise level software as well as publicly accessible applications that conform to Section 508 and WCAG level 1 and 2 standards. From rich media, RIA, internet, intranet and desktop software, we have been concentrating on creating accessible systems for over 8 years
