Mobile App UX/UI - Autonomous Ridesharing Image

Mobile App UX/UI - Autonomous Ridesharing

The Challenge: With the rise of ride-sharing companies like Uber and point-to-point car-sharing companies like car2go, conventional rental car companies must reinvent their business model to remain competitive. One way for these companies to differentiate themselves is by betting big on the future of autonomous vehicles. Neuron imagines the first user interface for passenger interaction with an autonomous ride-sharing

service. The Solution: Wheel will allow users to arrange and pay for a ride in a Wheel-owned autonomous vehicle. An efficient, intuitive, and emotive interface will build trust between users and this new service. The Wheel vehicle will provide users with trip information, identity verification, comfort controls, the ability to make an emergency stop, and allow children to check-in with parents.

Feedback summary: 

Conversion rates increased a significant amount. Neuron created a clear and modernized platform that benefitted the company’s client. Their honest team was disciplined. Their collaborative approach complemented their project management. Expect a team that delivers on time and within budget.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of a business strategy firm focused on helping companies create new ways to grow their diverse talent pipeline.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Neuron?

We were consulting with a school whose mission was to increase the presence of women in software engineering and build confidence in those making a career change. The school offers a 12-week immersive boot camp where, upon completion, women will graduate as software engineers.

The school's digital marketing efforts and website had minimal tracking/analytics and was not set up for re-marketing, which, in turn, affected enrollment. Our job was to grow their leads through trackable marketing strategies and an updated website that increase conversion. The website was content-heavy, but challenging to read through and search for information.

Women were looking for deep information about the school's curriculum and admissions. They need to be reassured they have what it takes to become a software engineer, regardless of their current career experience. The company also didn’t have enough money for a much-needed brand redesign, so I needed to hire an agency that could design a functional lead-generation site and rebrand, all in one.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Neuron rebuilt the company’s WordPress backend. The client wanted to keep the site on WordPress because they wanted to make changes themselves. Neuron geared the customized UX/UI design to attract women leaning toward changing careers and getting them to apply to the program. They created the branding exercise component, crafting appropriate colors, fonts, and more for the website. Their team also modernized the logo with a stylish font.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a lead designer and developer, along with a specialist in visual branding, and a designer that assisted with the flow and wireframes.

How did you come to work with Neuron?

I’ve worked with one of their founders on various projects over the last decade. He co-founded Neuron and I asked if he could take on this job. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested around $75,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Neuron from January–June 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

One of the reasons I hired Neuron was that their founders understood how to get users to move through a website easily and logically. It was a hard problem to solve given women's apprehension to a career in tech, but their team accomplished the goal. They took an incredible amount of time doing competitive research and interviews. Getting into the minds of how women think and what their barriers to entry are was key to the redesign. 

We drove a lot of marketing through Facebook, but people started staying longer on the website than usual. Our conversion rates to generate leads increased by 30-40%. We needed users to enroll, and it had to be a logical and straightforward path to get there. Neuron was the perfect partner for the job.

How did Neuron perform from a project management standpoint?

Neuron’s well-organized team over-delivered throughout the engagement. They were delivered within deadlines and on budget. I received access to their tracking tool and saw the project’s progression. Communicating with Neuron was easy. We met in person a couple of times and had several conference calls.

With design teams, it is nice to have a working session. We had one where we finalized about 75% of the wireframes.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve worked with numerous digital design agencies and freelancers, but not anyone like Neuron. Their team exceeds expectations.

Are there any areas they could improve?

When we worked with them, they’d just started Neuron and were still working on assigning set roles. They've since fixed that now.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

My advice to potential clients would be setting everything up during the proposal process. I’d also make sure that a proposal includes a competitive analysis and in-person meeting to review wireframes. This process saves time in the long run. Communication tools are helpful, but meeting face-to-face is where the efficient collaboration can make a difference.
