Traditional user testing
Digital user testing
Save time and money
Digital user testing with Teston is up to 75% cheaper than traditional tests in a lab. You no longer need to use time on recruitment, booking meetings and moderation. Test more, test often.
User tests in a lab (5-6 testers) compared to a digital user test with Teston:
Planning a user test takes time and must be coordinated. Usually 5-10 % of the total budget is reserved for project management.
This is one of the most critical parts of a user test. Testers must be recruited from the correct target audience. Normally this is done by external recruitment companies that get well-paid.
The test flow must be created and the customer has to accept it. The result is a document that the moderator uses to conduct the test.

All test participants must be welcomed when they arrive at the venue for the test, and usually also something to drink and some snacks. It's important that testers are relaxed and comfortable.
Two meeting rooms are usually necessary. One for conducting the test itself, and another one for one or more observers. It's also usual to offer some coffee, water and something to eat.
The person that moderates the user test along with all the participants usually has to spend their whole working day to preparing and conducting of the test.
The person that observes the test has to take notes underway and give feedback to the moderator, and usually have to spend their whole working day.

On the basis of video recordings and the observer's reviews, the user test is to be summarized. Sometimes this happens easily in form of a fair copy of the observer's notes. Sometimes one needs to create a complete report with conclusions and quotes from the testers.

Tools like Teston give us valuable insight and empathy for users we're not able to meet face to face. This, in combination with how fast we receive results, enables us to innovate faster than ever before.
