Ensure your experience matches or exceeds what your different user segments expect from it:
* How well does application supports user & business goals?
* Ease of accomplishing key tasks and use cases
* How do features in your platform compare to similar products or services?
Fine-tune performance by comparing your product to industry best practices and other similar products:

CASE STUDY: Oil Exploration
After significant internal investment in play mapping tools, no work had been done in five years. Where was the market? Should we improve what we had built or abandon in favor of COTS?

Expero's team of senior architects and designers evaluated the product where it stalled, analyzed the market for play-based exploration tools, and conducted interviews with real users and vendors. We offered a high-level estimate for upgrading the in-house software and spun up detailed technology recommendations for integration and data migration of existing projects.
"We asked Expero to roll out major revisions to personalized reports targeted to new markets, all on a very tight timeframe. Expero delivered. Not only did their prototypes look polished, but they also worked within and around our legacy systems to move our business forward."
