If you’ve used Progress products for a while, you might have noticed how our focus has evolved from creating solid technologies to solving tough business problems with those solid technologies. That change of focus brings the user experience front and center into our design process. Arin Bhomick, VP of our new User Experience and Design group, provided a great overview of what user experience encompasses in his recent post.
Our team, Progress Knowledge Services took a look at how we could also contribute to a better user experience. Progress Pacific browser-based offerings allow you to quickly and easily get started. Our role is to create content that supports you every step of the way, until you successfully achieve your goals.
We also thought about what it takes to provide help in a useful and engaging manner, and identified four guidelines:
These resulted in our vision for user assistance, a platform that goes beyond traditional documentation and training. Our first release of Progress Pacific User Assistance includes a series of short videos and HTML help content. We call the videos “byte-sized” because most are under five minutes and focus on common tasks. Our help content is “responsive,” that is, it behaves well when viewed on a variety of devices.
Our future plans include reorganizing and simplifying existing content, providing more focused videos, and integrating user assistance even more tightly with Pacific browser-based interfaces. Take a look and let us know what you think. You’ll find links to user assistance when using Pacific products and on our website here.
