"Enterprise Search" Project
Create a federated search experience across multiple products to enable users to search through different sources
Transforming search into an insight-driven knowledge center
Introducing "cognitive search"; ability to interpret the search string (single indexing and normalized taxonomy across products)
Use of AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Machine Learning) and NLP (Natural Language Processing) for unstructured data.
Faceted search result. Ability to filter the results.
Peer to peer connection. Discover individuals to help based on their knowledge/experience. Integration with chatbot to easily connect employees.
.Initial Business Challenges
- Managers were debating between "Enterprise search" and "Federated Search", as they were proposing to build something from the ground up
It took high effort for customers to do research & learn about TELUS Smart Home Security offerings
Customers needed specific pieces of information to be confident in their purchase decision
Different customers looked for different information to instill confidence in their purchase decision
After research, benchmark testing & gathering data, we identified areas for customer experience improvement.
I ran a workshop with my product team including product manager, user researchers, developers, QA, scrum master and some of the stakeholders to get everyone's perspective and ideas on what the different stages of shopping experience could look like. We mapped the experience and identified the core categories, breaking those further down into sub-categories. I had the team post up any gaps that needed to be explored in the redesign. From there, we all sketched and shared our ideas.
Some early explorations:
We designed & user tested several approaches, as seen below. We filled the gap for research & learn pages preparing the customers to move to the plans page confidently and make a decision on their desired security plan.
.The Importance of the "How it works" & "Products" (Device PLP & PDPs)
The "how it works" & "Products" pages allowed customers to:
Understand how TELUS SmartHome Security keep their home secure
Visualize a-day-in-life with the security system using the timeline component
Get detailed information on the devices included in their plan
Using the ideas and insights from the workshop, we started creating wireframes of 3 main pages that needed either a redesign or being designed from scratch.
I assisted our UX researcher in running moderated usability tests throughout multiple rounds of testing for this project. I was able to test the end to end experience of the SmartHome Security shopping (including plan configuration and checkout process). This helped give a better idea of of the holistic and contextual experience.
I supervised product designers and visual designers during the final hi-fidelity design process. Making sure the new components/elements are aligned with TELUS Design System, as well as creating new ones by following brand guidelines and validating the designs through testing.
I was responsible to create the documentation for A11y accessibility compliance, working with TELUS accessibility team to get final approval for new components
