Skuid, the leading cloud user experience (UX) platform for building bespoke business apps without writing code, announced today that it has launched an Experience Design Group to assist Skuid customers and partners with best practices in UX.
The team will be led by Jeff Cole, Director of Experience Design Group, who recently joined Skuid from OpenTable where he was Director of Product Management.
Jeff has worked in marketing, brand development, and strategic B2B and B2C consulting for some of the world's greatest brands from Coca-Cola, McDonalds, Home Depot, HCA, Columbia Healthcare and Tarkett to regional and national bank and lending institutions.
Cole’s areas of expertise include user research, visual design, experience design, story mapping, and design thinking, among others. Cole is joined by other experienced UX professionals, several of which also came from OpenTable.
“Smart enterprises are learning that a great UX is integral to business success, for both externally and internally facing apps. If we can bring consumer-grade UX to business apps, companies and employees will thrive,” says Cole.
“We have an incredibly talented team of UX experts at Skuid ready to undertake digital transformation with our customers.” Cole’s statements about the ROI of a good UX resound with today’s industry experts and analysts.
