Upgrade: New monthly accounts Announcements

Upgrade: New monthly accounts

Today we’ve made an important change to our accounts. We’ve switched from yearly plans to flexible monthly plans. We’re very happy to have you as a customer, so we’ll be doing our very best to make this switch a valuable upgrade for all of our current customers.

Our new plans

We’re switching from yearly accounts to monthly plans. New clients can now upgrade and downgrade their account at any time. Also, accounts are no longer restricted to a limited number of pages. Instead you can setup one or more tests simultaneously. Once you’ve hit your limit of active tests and deactivate a test, you can start a new one. As often as you like.


Questions? Feedback?

We’ve automatically migrated our current accounts to the new plans. We carefully planned this migration and manually checked the upgraded accounts. We might have missed something or may be you’re not happy with this change at all… If this is the case, please let us know. I’m sure we can help you.

Usabilla has been selected as a White Bull finalist Announcements

Usabilla has been selected as a White Bull finalist

Usabilla has been selected as a finalist for the Bully Awards, an award honoring the leading European technology, media, and telecommunications companies. We’ve been selected as finalist in the category of ‘White Bulls’ and are thrilled to get the opportunity to present Usabilla at the White Bull Summit event in Barcelona.

A total of sixty European companies were named as finalists for the 2010 Bully Award. The deserving finalists were selected from a pool of entries that included hundreds of nominated European TMT companies. The finalists fall into three categories:

• Yearlings: firms that seek or have received angel/seed rounds or equivalent
• Young Bulls: firms that seek or have received Series A financing
• Longhorns: post Series A firms

“The Bully Award finalists were selected first and foremost for values of excellence and innovation in the TMT sector,” stated Farley Duvall, Founder and Chairman of White Bull Summits. “Each firm has been recognized as a leader in its field, with a bright business proposition and meaningful market strategies, driven by a rich understanding of customer needs and technological solutions.”

Thirty winners (ten winners per category) will be announced live at the inaugural, invitation-only White Bull Summit 2010, Pathways to Exit event in Barcelona, September 20 – 22.

Improvements in the test interface Announcements

Improvements in the test interface

One of our most important focus points is the usability of our own test interface. Participating in a Usabilla test must be simple, fun, and way more exciting than a standard survey. In the past year we’ve released about 15 iterations on our test interface. Each iteration was based on feedback from participants, users, and experts using Usabilla. We’ve just released a small update and we think this update solves the most important usability issues of our test interface.

Problem: Participants don’t have a clue that they can add notes.

Usabilla is primary a quantitative tool. Notes add a qualitative aspect to the tests and are of in many cases of great help to interpret test results.  If you run a test case with for example 250 participants and all those 250 participants add 20 points with notes, your ‘lean & mean’ test is probably no longer ‘lean & mean’. This is the reason why we focus on points as primary response and notes as secondary. Unfortunately in our previous releases we didn’t manage to find a good balance between these two interactions.
