Web-Phone User Experience 2010: PC Laptop Manufacturers
Forrester Applies Its Web-Phone User Experience Review Methodology To Four Top US Firms
May 27, 2010
Why Read This Report
Forrester applied its Web-Phone User Experience Review methodology to the experiences at four large PC laptop manufacturers: Apple, Dell, HP, and Toshiba. The results: Apple came out ahead, but the overall experiences across the PC manufacturers earned nowhere near passing scores. What were common problems? The PC manufacturers used unclear language and lacked contextual help on the Web, omitting content essential to user goals from their interactive voice response (IVR) systems. But we did encounter best practices like Apple's imagery that added value, Dell's clear and efficient IVR system, and HP's useful online laptop recommendation tool. To improve the Web-phone experience, PC manufacturer customer experience professionals should clarify confusing language to help users make better buying decisions and improve IVR order status capabilities.
