What is wrong with current DMeeting Pad？
As the mock up picture shows, Dmeeting Pad is an interactive terminal that usually hanged at the door of a meeting room. As its product line belongs to the field of Internet of Things, the DMeeting Pad, the user and the environment has construct a sepcial relationship net among them.
" It doesn't fit in our company because its color doesn't match. "
" Looking for a spare time slot is time-cosuming and costly. "
My very first response:
In a real business, user-centered design is not the only thing to consider. Working as a UI designer, I have to take far more responsibilities than design itself. My very first response to the problem is to have a deep talk with the product manage, sales and operation coordinator. This helped me to target precisely on the real core problem: the breadth of DMeeting Pad.
I realize one thing: Being a business product, DMeeting would hardly face the need of every client because every client had very specific demands, just like they all have different theme colors for their brands.
Breadth: Different themes (style+color+UX flow) that covers most of the main needs of the customers.
Depth: A single theme with customized modules and a fixed but friendly user experience flow.
