Help a new and innovative commercial roof bidding website go from good to great.
Molstad Consulting was approached by Top Floor Technologies to perform a professional review of their client’s complex roof project bidding website. The system consisted of more than 50 unique interfaces to be evaluated.
The resulting document featured numerous annotated screen shots organized by user access and task flows with detailed recommendations for improvements in the areas of information architecture, information design, graphic design, interface usability, user task fulfillment, help system usability, and copywriting.
