What is UX? Those two letters have a lot of meaning! Here at Sinch UX is one of our very favorite things. At least when it’s done well. And that’s what we help you to ensure! That it is done well, that is.
UX stands for user experience. (Yeah, we know, experience doesn’t start with an x...but whatever. We didn’t decide the acronym.) It’s about how a user experiences their interactions with your product, company, service, whatever. What are those interactions like, and how does the user perceive them?
The importance of UX
Here at Sinch we frequently talk about UX in a more specific context – that of CX (customer experience). It’s the same thing really, but CX is a specific type of UX – the UX that is the user experience of your customers as opposed to a different type of user.
And why is this user/customer experience so important?
Lots of reasons. Offering a good user experience makes it easier for customers to sign up or convert. It can also help build brand loyalty – if your users or customers enjoy their experience with you, they’re more likely to stick around. Why wouldn’t you want to boost conversions and reduce churn?
