There’s so much said, these days, about the importance of an intuitive user interface (UI). It is hard to overstate the importance of a crisp and clear UI experience that does not distract from the task at hand. I shared some of my thoughts on UI in my BeyondPLM blog a few days ago. Here’s the article, Why cloud PLM will dominate in superior UI experience.
At Inforbix we’ve been thinking about how to make UI really simple and easy to use. An example of how we’ve tried to make the UI experience as helpful as possible is demonstrated on the home page of our product, aka the Home app. Notice how we included a section called “Useful tasks” that gives users a short cut to quickly locating the information they need. Here’s a screen shot with the Useful tasks section marked up:
I’ll share with you a few more screen shots to demonstrate how the UI of Useful tasks works. Let’s start with finding data by categories (aka data types). Choosing a category is straight forward. As soon a you click “Find data by category” a menu of the data types Inforbix knows about in your company is automatically generated:
When a category is selected, e.g. Solidworks Drawing, here are the results quickly generated by Inforbix:
By choosing “Quick Reports”, you can quickly and easily create a report of documents related to a specific user in your company. Here are two screen shots showing this and the results:
Finally, if you’d like to chart some helpful statistics, such as a chart of “last saved by” activities in your project, you can use Quick Statistics. Here’s two screen shots the illustrate the setup and results:
Conclusion. We’ve tried making the Inforbix UI as easy and intuitive as possible. Working and using Inforbix requires no training or special skills. Getting started is quick and painless. Let us know what you think of our UI. Try our test drive demo or register to use Inforbix for free.
