Workspot is a new Kleiner Perkins funded startup providing enterprises with services to allow employees to bring their tablets to work and access all of their work apps and productivity tools quickly and easily, without giving up control of their personal device. We were very fortunate to begin working on this project in its very nascent stages, before any code had been written and help shape the product features as well as design.
This app, initially released for iPads and Windows 8 tablets, gives employees an easy to use and secure interface to manage their work apps and documents. The stakeholders focused on an extremely simple end user experience, while pushing all of the complexity into the IT admin interface. Cloudforest Design designed both parts of the app.
End User Experience
For employees, our design focus was on keeping the user experience super simple, but also delightful.
The admin console, although allowing for great complexity in user, app and security management, also had to be super quick to set up and easy to manage.
