Insurance and Investment Services
Produxs provides strategy, UI design and optimization for complex software applications and transactional websites. Core services include User Experience Design, Search Engine Optimization, Analytics, and, Multivariate Testing. Produxs focuses on measurable project outcomes and strong ROI User Experience (UX) Design Think of UX Design as design with an outcome in mind. That outcome may be a purchase, a download, a signupâ€”or perhaps simply a specific navigational path through an application or website. Produxs employs User Experience (UX) design to maximize site usability and visitor conversion to sale. We design and develop interactive products, platforms and applications that are intuitive and delightful to use that generate strong ROI for their owners. We do this by drawing upon our deep understanding of current and emerging technology, and research techniques that produce winning user experiences-not just "pie in the sky" ideas. Our knowledge of commercial web and software applications extends back to the very beginning of the PC revolution. Search Engine Optimization In its most basic sense, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) attempts to ensure that web visitors can easily find a site through organic (non-paid) browser searches. More specifically, the goal of SEO is that any Internet user who enters search terms related to your business in a search engine should find your web site as one of the top organic search results. And, having seen your web site listed as a top result, these relevant searchers perceive your web site described and presented in a way that causes them to click on your web site and not someone else's. Although SEO is a technical discipline, it's critical that SEO strategies and actions work in lock-step with your company's business strategy and market positioning. Unlike most other SEO practitioners, Produxs' SEO practice leaders have extensive experience as top marketing executives. As a result, we have a keen understanding that effective SEO should never be treated as an isolated, technical project but instead must complement and serve your global marketing strategies and goals.
