The first release of the application was intended for customers who did not have an online application to access order related documents. My research included multiple interview sessions with stakeholders and users from three business units to uncover relevant data. I created layouts that would display the information and allow users to view the necessary documents. I performed usability tests and surveys between iterations.
Several iterations resulted in a layout that allowed users to view, search and filter documents based on relevant data. Within the layout, I created a structure that defined the correlation between documents. The document hierarchy was displayed using a collapsible component that allowed users to see the Order data while the component is closed and drill down into options to access each document when opened. Responsive layouts provided the same functionality for mobile devices.
The final prototype displays a solution that allowed users to access their order related documents online from any device, therefore reducing churn and eliminating calls to sales representatives or trudging through email chains. This solution also gave users the ability to review and analyze data in a holistic view, something they were never able to do.
