We are delighted to announce that the new Edgescan UI redesign has won a GOOD DESIGN Award in the category for Mobile Application 2020 design. The new Edgescan UI was designed in collaboration with Design Partners (Marija Cosic, Kevin Dunne and Cormac Ó Conaire) based in Bray alongside our own team consisting of David Kennefick, Matt Craig, Joe Douglas and Owen Money.
Below are some of the innovative design elements included in the Good Design Awards entry and impressed the judges.
The main challenge was to take the old Edgescan platform that displayed a high amount of information from scanning and identifying vulnerabilities and at the same time displaying exactly what the customers need to see which was the various risks that the platform has identified in an environment free of clutter and non-essential information. We wanted to save time for our customers and improve efficiency in how they use our platform.
One element of the story being told by the design team was around ‘noise-reduction’ as the USP was to be part of all design decision which was simplifying all complexity, reducing noise of the UX and only exposing the users to relevant information. All of these decision s will also delivers even more time saving for the clients.
“Support costs and overhead costs is reduced by introducing more intuitive design. Combined with more ways to authenticate, it’s much easier for organizations to train new staff on the Edgescan platform.” – David Kennefick, Product Architect, Edgescan
Our final colour palette was made fully colour-blind accessible, while remaining clear and consistent. The traffic light systems was introduced to all critical areas so the information was understandable even for the first use of the product.
Conclusion and Result
Great design reflects both the customers needs and the brand promise. Our customers are now able to generate reports faster then ever before and view vital information quickly at just a glance. This represents a huge time saving for our clients.” – David Kennefick, Product Architect, Edgescan. In the end, we followed through with the our design ethos of reducing noise on our platform and standing out from our competitors.
