Centigrade regularly contributes to events in the domains of UX Design and Usability. This year, amongst other things, the company attended “Usability Professionals” 2013, which took place in Bremen. Together with Exact Software Deutschland GmbH, Centigrade contributed a talk on “We are buying usability – A user centered recount”. The corresponding session “Inouse & Supplier Cooperation” focused on the collaboration between client and usability services provider. Dr. Markus Weber, Head of Usability Engineering: “Our project with Exact Germany is a perfect example for providing insight regarding the collaboration from initial pitch to establishing sustainable usability measures within the client’s organization. The questions during the session and the discussions afterwards proved the relevance of the topic for service providers as well as clients.” The corresponding article in the conference proceedings can be found on ISSUU (German).
