We can perform the comparison in the form of usability testing or usability review.

The typical comparison research process has 5 steps:

  1. Goal. Discuss your business goals and needs, your users, and your users' needs.
  2. Scope. Identify the products to be compared – usually your product and 2 or 3 competitors. Define areas to be compared and comparison criteria.
  3. Assessment. Perform the actual comparison.
  4. Analysis. Process the results, summarize and analyze the findings, and prepare the report.
  5. Delivery. Present the results.

We keep the results confidential. We will not announce that we are working on a specific project unless you want us to do it.

We may use some of the findings, with your explicit permission, in our publications or presentations. We may also request your permission to prepare a case study and use it for marketing and PR purposes for the shared benefit of you as a client and Lucrat as a service provider.
