Problem, limitations, solution

Deliver accurate shopping results; make those results easy to digest, understand and compare. Create a trustworthy shopping experience that is compelling and rewarding.

Limitations were multifaceted — resources, timing, real concern about impacting the conversion rate negatively, even momentarily (as is very often the case with major design changes).

Fostering a shared vision supported by qualitative data, implementing experience/Ui changes incrementally and A/B testing to gain quantitative insights.

Results included, significant increases in conversion rates, greatly improved product experience (branding, Ux, Ui) which in turn led to higher levels of trust amongst customers and suppliers.


Desktop app

Meticulous iteration, research, and testing helped us evolve new design options to express the shopping experience.

Mobile app

Conversion rates were very low on mobile, despite respectable traffic. Applying what had been learned from the work done on the desktop app, the experience was completely redesigned, re-engineered, and relaunched.
