Future Steps

The analysis mentioned above are related to design & layout, consistency of information and having tabs for the site for better navigation.

It is also important to understand the user personas and include Design Thinking as part of the process to scale the system for different personas and better retainment of users. Generally, the retention rate of users is around 30% in a month for apps, however with the use of Design Thinking the retention of users is over 35% for a year. [5]

It will be good to create questionnaires and ask the users to provide the feedback. The design of questionnaires needs to be thoroughly thought through. Also, create a journey mapping of the users and identify the user personas.

The benefits of looking at UX based approach are many fold and has been mentioned in [1], [2], [3], [4]
