Navflow is a tool to help you determine the usability of your mock-up design. With the large number of visitors coming in and out of a website, understanding how effective and usable your design is, is essential prior to production, otherwise you risk the painful redesign process and additional budgetary losses.
Usability is different for every website and application, depending on its application, and the only way to understand what is and what is not working is to have test done beforehand, a virtual focus group. Navflow gives you the chance to share mock-up designs with the intended audience and receive feedback to help fine tune the design engine and produce the intended goals for the intended audience.
By finding out, through Navflow, how people move through and navigate through a design, a designer is able to understand how to bend structural aspects before removing or adding to it. By allowing a user to upload images of the design in the natural intended method that it is to be used, the general public or a private audience goes through the images to see if they truly do follow the intended path. The reports offered are in heatmap form, charts and graphs that quickly gives the designer a concise way to overview the results and put their efforts into design.
Navflow is a usability test for designer’s that helps them analyze how people navigate around an application and/or website.
