  • We handle all aspects of running usability studies, including recruitment and scheduling.
  • We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. You pay nothing if you are not absolutely satisfied.

Risks of Ignoring Human Factors and Usability

Unfortunately, we observe the following problems again and again:

  • No permission to market your products: The FDA and notified bodies are obliged to examine the suitability of your usability file. If the file does not conform with regulations, you will receive it back for revision. This quickly becomes very costly: paying for the auditor, for the revision of the file, and for lost profits if your product is not on the market. 
  • Failure in marketing by dissatisfied customers: Poor usability leads to dissatisfied customers, unnecessarily high costs for support, and continuous improvements and “tweaks.” Ultimately, customers will choose products that are more usable.
  • Damaged patients, compensation: In the worst case, a company doesn’t realize the risks of poor human factors until harm has occurred. This can lead to high indemnity claims and a damaged reputation, and it’s not uncommon: 70% of FDA recalls for software are due to usability issues!

Don't let it get that far and contact us right away. Together we will develop a human factors engineering process with which you can quickly and cost-effectively obtain a usability file to safely pass audits and approvals.
