Lead the redesign of an existing content management product, with the goal of simplifying how small businesses organize, share, and interact with their business data. Was responsible for the overall design of the product including; wireframing, visual language and user validation. Built out the initial prototype of the application and then worked with one other developer to integrate it into the current tech stack, while continuing to iterate on the feature set.

Using a unique technical framework, Acceleredge is designed to solve organizations complex data and document management problems. The web application was completely mobile responsive and optimized to function as a mobile web app.

Using Acceleredge, we have consolidated our tower data and documents and simplified our operations.

  3. Automate common business functionality

  • Integrate both data and documents
  • Filter and search all records
  • Control user access

  • Integrate data with external applications

Design Process

The design process that I follow is:

  1. Conduct user research

User Interface

We started by looking at the Material design guidelines and Polymer but ultimately settled on Bootstrap. Here is one of the original designs for the project.

Focus Areas

These are the ares of the product that we spent the most time trying to innovate on.

Mobile

A primary motivator for the redesign was around mobility. We wanted to allow managers to be able to run a report or look up a record while on the go and enable field agents to input new records while on site.

Marketing Site

As part of this project we launched a new marketing site to increase awareness of the product.
