Accenture had a goal at improving usability and tax professional productivity with their enterprise corporate tax software. We worked with Accenture to provide an improved user experience and innovative forms management capability. Team mentoring was a component of the engagement where we trained the development and business analysts teams on best practices for usability. The software (LaCerte) became a market leader for CPA firms and was eventually acquired by Intuit.
KPMG engaged us to work on several critical internal applications that enabled them to assess how best to provide their global services to new client engagements.

ABN AMRO is a leading financial services firm based in Europe with operations in the USA. They engaged CSS to help design and test a major online initiative to sell Mortgages (Purchase and Refinance) through their Mortgage.com website. The legacy back-end loan origination and approval system was very cumbersome and our goal was to shield the user from this with a modern, efficient user interface. We worked with the Mortgage.com team to fully understand the legacy system and it's limitations. We then created a UX design and interactive prototype to simulate how a new solution would work and validated this design with key business stakeholders. Once approved, we performed formal usability testing and refined the prototype to deliver an optimal user experience for applying and getting approved for a home loan. Mortgage.com was launched with great success and eventually acquired by Citicorp to grow their online mortgage business.
Chicago Title Insurance is a leading provider of title insurance within the USA. CSS was engaged to improve the productivity and usability of the software they provide to Title Agents in their offices throughout the USA.

In addition we provided User Experience training to various teams within the company to build internal expertise for future application design initiatives.

Bank of America engaged CSS to improve the user experience for its customers who visit retail branches. They were about to invest millions of dollars in a new training system and asked our team to validate the strategy. CSS performed contextual inquiry research in various areas of the USA to gain a deeper understanding of how branch employees learned and how best to improve their overall performance. This research was then rolled into a new design for branch software and training materials to improve branch staff competency and the overall customer experience for bank customers.
