Another Iceland Image

Another Iceland

Another Iceland dedicates 365 days a year to organizing self-drive tours in Iceland. Traveling independently without a group or a guide is by far the best and cheapest way to travel in Iceland.

Our goal as the designers was to redesign the website for Another Iceland, making the way to booking process smooth, fascinating and beautiful.

The more cables you have in the conference room, the more valuable time that's wasted by both your IT team and your users trying to make things work. With the Ubiq wireless presentation solution, IT will no longer have to waste time providing AV support.

 

Our goal was to make the TV app user experience as transparent as possible. It includes remote management and calendar integration.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Im the CEO of a technology SME which core products are software applications for business intelligence and security solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire FCKN® 044?

We hired FCKN for designing and user interface in the form of a data-heavy dashboard for our business intelligence platform powered by AI technology.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals where fast prototyping to support a lean customer development on our side, and a concise logic for the user navigation on our platform. Also, a clean readability and chart design for a fast information consumption were a paramount objective.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I found FCKN® 044 over Upwork, after reviewing and interviewing a handful of companies.

Describe the project in detail.

The project concerned a user interface in the form of a data-heavy web application for our business intelligence platform powered by AI technology for the retail industry.

What was the team composition?

To my knowledge FCKN® 044 involved up to two designer. However, as product manager I was interacting solely with the CEO and chief designer Mariia, which was a definite advantage in terms of short communication lines, availability and mutual understanding of goals and priorities.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The major outcome to mention is the ability of lean customer development with a set of interactive designs at my disposal that allow the customers to engage and provide feedback. This is a priceless outcome, especially in new and uncharted markets where target customers and audiences interact with data that they have not seen before.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was well aligned, communication lines were short, synchronizations happened regularly. We used slack, trello and Invision to update, measure, priorities and track progress.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The CEO has an extraordinary work ethic and is a great asset due to her reliable and engaging nature as well as her regard for the projects delivery dates and milestones. Even change requests on short notice have not posed any issues.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Communication was a bit laggy at the beginning, but this substantially improved over the course of our engagement.
