What: Out of Box Experience- with Frank Long, Director of Dublin-based
Frontend. (http://frontend.com/)

Research in the US shows that each year consumers return millions of
electronic products – not because they don’t work, but because customers
think they don’t work. Coupled with product returns is the cost of
customer support calls to overcome set-up difficulties. It is estimated
that the cost of poor out of box experience in the US alone is 13.8bn
per year. Frank Long from Frontend will talk about some of the key
issues that impact on the out of box experience and present some recent
case studies examples.
