WORD USABILITY DAY SPECIAL OFFERS
The 5th World Usability Day takes place Thursday, 12 November.
To commemorate the occasion, we are offering some of our usability
resources at substantially discounted rates for the whole of next week:
* SynCaps V2 - our card sorting analysis software, used for projects
ranging from navigation design to social research across the globe (it
handles Cyrillic, Greek and other non-Latin character sets for those who
need to do truly international research).
* UK Mobile Phone E-Commerce Report - our user experience benchmarking
report covering 12 leading vendors. Jared Spool said "If you're in the
mobile phone e-commerce business, you need to read this report", but
even if you're not it provides important insights on trends in user
Both of these normally sell for GBP 250 (around EUR 280 or USD 410) but
during next week they will cost only GBP 50 each (around EUR 55 or USD
80). Also, we will be giving special discounts to any site-specific
benchmarks commissioned next week - contact me for further details. For
links to the special offers, visit http://www.syntagm.co.uk/design any
day next week.
Finally, on WUD itself, we will be giving our UK Mobile Phone E-Commerce
Report away to a randomly-selected subscriber on our benchmarking
mailing list. If you would like to be included, send an empty email to
mailto:subscribe-uxbench at listman.syntagm.co.uk before next Thursday (if
you already own the report, we will refund your original purchase).
Subscribing is also the way to find out about new reports.
Discounted advance registration is available for the NNG Usability Week
in Berlin until 13 November. We are running our Ajax Design & Usability
course there on 16 November. See http://www.nngroup.com/events for
details and registration.
Also, we have launched a new one-day course on Agile Interaction Design.
This addresses the issues of doing user-centred design within Agile
Processes and uses Pruitt & Adlin's Personas Lifecycle approach to
thread design and development activities together. We don't have any
public dates for this as yet, but contact me if you are interested in
running this within your organisation. Details are available at http://www.syntagm.co.uk/design/ucdcourse.htm
