Mobile Usability Courses Launched

Mobile usability firm User Vision is staging two one-day training courses, in Edinburgh and London. Each willl discuss the positive commercial benefits of mobile usability and show, through real-world examples, the impact that poor usability has on both the end user and the brand.

Qualified in both Applied Biological Sciences and in Work Design and Ergonomics, Westwater is also a registered member of the Ergonomics Society and the Usability Professionals Association.
