How can you convince others that usability efforts are not an added
expense, but can actually save money? Usable designs not only make
people happy, they are good business. If your site is hard to use,
people won’t be able to complete their task or find what they are
looking for.

Mary M. Michaels of Human Factors International
http://www.humanfactors.com explains how good usability means a good
return on investment (ROI), ensuring that dollars are wisely spent,
especially in this difficult economic climate.

Learn how to improve productivity and operational efficiency, while
minimizing support, training, development, and maintenance costs by
focusing on usability. Make the case for usability at
your organization, improve your designs, and demonstrate positive
ROI.
