Challenge

Modernize a legacy Java application and create more intuitive experience for finance experts creating, planning and managing variable pay. 

Outcome
  • Iconixx users are ecstatic about the new user experience!
  • When users saw early wireframes and prototypes their reaction was "Iconixx - you get it!"
  • The UX design and user research work done by Expero continues to inform product requirements and roadmaps.
Business Case

Iconixx legacy code base and user experience once cutting edge had become dated. They were concerned that the dated look and lack of mobile options could make them vulnerable.

APPROACH

A UX AS POWERFUL AS THE ICONIXX ENGINE

* Sales compensation plans can be quite complex with rules, data relationships and formulas that all need to be modeled. Typically requiring assistance from field engineers to create theses complex models.

* As part of moving to the cloud, we created a new user experience that put the power of the Iconixx engine in the hands of domain expert users while simplifying complex data modeling and rule building tasks

* In order to ensure user adoption, the new UX was driven by user input and feedback. Lean user testing methods were used to engage with users throughout the project.
