My Role

As the lead UX/UI Designer and Project Manager, my role was to lead the design and implementation of a user-centric interface that would simplify the complex B2B purchasing process. Through meticulous research, user testing, and iterative design cycles, I aimed to create a cohesive and intuitive experience that would elevate Cisco's B2B platform, fostering increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Challenge

The main challenges revolved around balancing the need for a fresh design with maintaining brand consistency and ensuring ease of navigation for users accustomed to the previous interface.

Research

We start our research by asking Cisco team with How Might We approach to develop an effective solution

  • How might we streamline the process for users to checkout?

  • How might we analyzing features across all CCW tracks to ensure consistency and accuracy?

  • How might we enhance the customer experience through the sale cycle?





We meticulously identified the major personas across all CCW tracks. Through an immersive journey mapping exercise with stakeholders and team, we defined their goals, expectations, touchpoints, experiences, and pain points. This intense exploration into the lives of our users unveiled inconsistencies within the existing CCW program. Crucially, it highlighted the pressing need to elevate their overall experiences. Armed with this invaluable understanding, we crafted a comprehensive strategy to address the identified gaps and deliver a seamless, user-centric CCW experience.

Ideate

After gaining a deep understanding of the problem and user needs, we engaged in collaborative brainstorming sessions to generate a wide range of innovative ideas and potential solutions across CCW tracks. Through iterative sketching and rapid prototyping, we explored and refined various concepts, allowing us to visualize and evaluate different approaches.

To validate the seamless new solution with existing functionalities, we conducted rigorous testing and evaluation processes. The effectiveness of the implemented solution was meticulously analyzed through heuristic and usability evaluations, while valuable insights from stakeholders and partners were incorporated to optimize the overall experience. Additionally, a Task Performance Indicator (TPI) assessment was conducted for the CCW to pinpoint areas for further refinement and enhancement.

In our quest to achieve reusability, consistency, increase development velocity, we created a design system to help conceptualize, build and ship new features, iterations and products much faster, and more efficiently.

Solution

Through a user-centered design approach, we conducted extensive research, including user interviews and usability testing, to inform our redesign decisions. We focused on simplifying complex workflows, refining visual elements, and integrating intuitive navigation patterns.

Leveraging contemporary design principles, we crafted a visually compelling and intuitive website interface. We focused on creating clear user journeys, optimizing for mobile responsiveness, and implementing interactive elements to captivate visitors.
