SEATTLE, Wash., July 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - The increasing volume of data, competitive products and the Internet of Things has brands collecting more insight than ever before. The top brands that are digital have taken initiatives to listen and offer user-centered design. Current best practices call for spending about 10% of a design project's budget on usability.
The key to gathering valid usability data and quantifying this specific user behavior relies on approaching more engaging and qualitative means of collecting data. Survey Analytics, a leader in multi-platform survey technology, has branched out to extend qualitative offerings in addition to their tools to help companies "listen" both internally and externally. Following the product launch of FlashLet earlier this year in the HR technology and employee feedback space, the acquisition of TryMyUI will enable Survey Analytics to connect brands to interactive and narrative videos of real people using websites or software.
"The TryMyUI team have done a tremendous job and we see massive value in combining attitudinal and behavioral data as part of our global listening effort. We are excited to have TryMyUI as part our portfolio of services we offer," said Survey Analytics President Vivek Bhaskaran on TryMyUI joining Survey Analytics.

Major brands such as Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Verizon and Groupon have relied on TryMyUI for usability testing of online platforms.
TryMyUI is an online focus group composed of pre-qualified testers that are trained carefully to record their screen, give their voiced opinion and walkthrough any website, online process or software as new user.
