ToolsGroup’s leadership came to Digital Scientists hoping to solve two primary challenges: win over new customers and re-engage currently user.
Over the years, the user experience of S099+ had waned compared to their ML engines performance. The platform’s overall market share and stance seemed to be threatened, as their industry had begun to compete on user experience – sometimes even to the neglect of prediction accuracy. Their user experience, not just their engine, needed to be a competitive differentiator.
From stakeholder and user interviews to product and market audits, we would begin with an investigation of the primary pains and gains of the platform.

Prepare for development
Once validated internally and externally, we would focus on thoroughly designing priority workflows and preparing the interface for development.
