Business software UIs don’t need to be ugly

Nikos Moraitakis | Workable General |

At Workable, we take special pride in our user experience design. We believe that software for business has suffered too long from interfaces created only to check a list of requirements, with little thought given to usability and aesthetics.

Business software need not be ugly or clumsy.

In fact, software for a job like recruiting is going to be used by people who only spend a few hours a month hiring people. For them, the process of reviewing applicants or taking in interview notes is a side job. Something they cannot afford to be trained for separately or do day-after-day, often enough to become experts with a complex tool.

The tools business users have for tasks like that ought to be pretty, simple, self-explanatory and yes, even fun!

We will be talking more about our design concepts and the way we solve complex problems with simple user interfaces. As a teaser for future posts on the topic, I’ll share with you a presentation delivered by our UI/UX queen in a web conference last weekend.
