In 2014 Verkkokauppa.com registered 39.5 million online visits, of which the share of mobile users was around 40%. Verkkokauppa.com’s goal was to develop a purchasing process that would make buying online as convenient as possible. The company wanted to create a purchasing process in which buying happened “almost by accident” and in which the two key elements of an online store – browsing and purchasing – would provide an excellent customer experience.
In the development of the purchasing process two concepts were used: Verkkokauppa.com’s own concept, and a version developed by Adage. Adage employed a mobile first strategy in the iterative design process. The process included a benchmark study, co-design workshops and usability tests with members of the target audiences. As a result, an innovative user interface concept with novel solutions for the purchasing process and mobile device user experience was created. Based on the collaborative workshops, a hybrid model that combined the best features of both concepts, was put on the production.
