At Webcredible, we have a bit of a tradition that when you go away on holiday you bring back an item of food from that country for the office to share. July has been scattered with holidays so we have all been enjoying snacks from foreign shores, I brought back chocolate cake from Italy, which was an instant winner, gone within about 5 mins.
With the travel industry in full flow at this time of year, and following on from our travel poll last month that showed price and feedback to be the most important influences when booking online, we have now released our 2011 Flights Online Report. The report analyses the websites of 20 flight provider and travel agents, so you can see which website is best and easiest to use. (And this year we had a change at the top of the leader board – any guesses?)
July was also a busy month for UX professionals with UX Camp London, where two of our UX Consultants Yeevon and Alex held some great sessions and TFT London held a great Gamification evening. We have also had a bit of a mobile month at Webcredible. Our latest mobile poll is racking up the results looking at what influences us to download apps, a really interesting topic if you want to increase uptake of your own app. Take part in the mobile poll and see what is coming out top! As well as this, we have launched our Mobile User Experience training course. Written and delivered by Abid, our in house mobile expert, it’s a hands-on course that will really help you get to grips with making sure your mobile propositions are well adapted for the platform, your business requirements and the customer.
We also have the great news that one of our UX Consultants has published his first novel. ‘Six Days’ by Philip Webb is a fantastic sci-fi novel with a brilliant plot and great characters. It is aimed at children/teenagers but the entire office has read it and loved it! Congratulations Phil, we look forward to the next one (no pressure).
Finally, work is starting on our new office space, today! Our new home, on Southwark Street near London Bridge marks a great new step and we hope it will be a welcome change for our staff and clients as we look to the future of User Experience and Webcredible. I may even be blogging from there this time next month! To keep up to date with our move, and loads of other interesting things then follow us on twitter @webcredible.
