P2+Co
UX Digital
Agency ?

P2+Co is a Montreal-based UX design agency that brings strategy, business, and development around one and the same table. Our design methodologies allow listening, reflection and a taste for solutions that aim to simplify use and understanding.

Our team of designers ensures maximum quality for your projects while enriching the exchanges within our UX design studio. Our goal? Meet your needs in a personalized way, gain adaptation, efficiency, and think creatively.

WHAT we do

Before actually starting!

  • A series of meetings, activities and exchanges for:
  • understand how the project works and the client’s business objectives
  • get to know the users through interviews and auto-ethnography research to identify the problems to be solved for the users
  • collect data and collect project documentation
  • map the project/client ecosystem
  • heuristic analysis of the interfaces of the current project (container and content)
  • determine the scope of the project and its future evolution
  • define the progress of the project according to your priorities
  • identify the success indicators of UX support on the project

Iterative and cyclical design

Once the analysis and discovery phase has been completed, P2+Co will perform the following main activities. However, depending on the context, we can offer others with the agreement of the client.

Design system

  • Support services in user research and design validation
  • We will not generally wait to have finished the prototype in detail to test a concept.
  • *The client will have to provide us with the contacts of the participants to meet and will be responsible for providing incentives if necessary.
  • To identify issues that need to be addressed.

Production phase and follow-ups

At this phase, production begins as much in the UX as in the programming and integration of the components. All the system design has a counterpart made by the Frontend programmers and the beginning of the production cycles in Agile mode are set up including the UX.

OUR design professionals will solve your UX challenges!
Improve your customer’s digital experience with your digital products

You want an effective product from the first iteration without having to redo the foundations! Like an architect who builds the solid, simple and efficient foundations of your home, a user experience designer can build your UX on strong foundations that will make your project successful.

That’s great! Our UX agency can start with you right now and bring your project to life using proven steps that will minimize the risk of such an undertaking for your branding! We believe in hands-on projects and will accompany you every step of the way with a reliable design methodology!

Let’s review it together with our methodology and develop a strategy that will bring it to the next level of simplicity and user-friendliness! The road to usability is paved with temptations to complicate the design with extra features and options: resisting « featuritis » is the best prescription for a good user experience. Usability testing experts are the right solution to create a user-centered design! Source: Nielsen Norman group
The best way to do that is to put in place a series of workshops and really see what your group has in mind: 99% of the time, your staff already knows what the best solution is! However, we often rely on external agencies to get information that we already have internally. A structured workshop designed for you and your team is the optimal way to dig out the needed information.

Our UX agency is here to eliminate your software’s learning curve! We will go through discovery steps and create simple digital interface experiences together: make your user’s life easier by removing training needs.

We helped many companies in that way and today they don’t even need us! What a shame! 4 main factors (and 12 subfactors) should be considered to assess an organization’s UX maturity: strategy, culture, process, and outcomes. Source: Nielsen Norman group
This is our designer’s area of expertise! Design needs to be iterating and we love to talk with our clients and be challenged: how else can you create a true user-centered design?
People, we just love them! We need to understand your current and potential users to be efficient in a project and translate their needs and wants to your product! A UX designer is the perfect addition to your product teams to incorporate user input into your design decisions.

Learn more about UX and our User Experience agency

User experience design is an activity by teams focused on designing the experience that consumers will have with a certain product such as an app or a website. Generally, UX design includes creating the brand, design, functionality, and functionality. UX design is much more than just Graphic Design. Source: (uxplanet.org)
If you are looking to hire a user experience agency located in the United States, we can estimate a sum of around $75,000 to produce high-quality results. We’d recommend setting aside a budget at least $75k+ for hiring a U.S. based user experience agency.

For any project or any SAS where you aim to create an online presence, you should dedicate 20 to 30% of your budget to the conception and planning of your work. It will allow you to save on 100% of your cost by better evaluating and testing your entire project before starting programming, but also to keep a clear development line during the entire process. 

We recommend onboarding your product team from the beginning of this process: clear communication and information sharing will make the UX design project seamless through your organization. 

(Research shows that, on average, every $1 invested in UX brings $100 in return. That’s a ROI of a whopping 9,900%. Source: Forrester)

Yes! While developing a product such as a mobile application, many design decisions have to be made. First of all: What is the purpose of the app? What will users want to do inside the app and what design can help users reach their goals quickly and efficiently? source : Hey, psychology students: consider UX as your future job | by Konstantin Escher | UX Collective (uxdesign.cc)

Absolutely! You would be surprised to see how efficient you can be with the right methodology. Adopting a strategy that forces you to map the complete stories of your user across their usage of your brand and testing it with users during its development allows you to adjust and continually improve. By involving users in your development process, you significantly reduce the risk or errors!

User experience and customer experience are somewhat similar, since UX already encompasses the overall experience of the user even out of the digital experience. The methodology is everything: if you do your research, your prototyping and so on, you will get more accurate results in your projects.

The UX design process is not set in stone, and many variations, or “flavours”, of UX design exist, such as Lean UX and Design Thinking.The basic steps don’t change a lot, except for the labels and a few techniques for executing them. 

  1. What’s the Problem — Do your research and plan your approach.
  2. What’s the Solution — Brainstorm and test ideas.
  3. How to make it happen — Refine, user research, and iterate.
  4. How to bring it to life — Provide your design and functional specifications to the developers

The important themes in all the major methods are iteration and user input.  This first phase “What’s the problem?” is usually called something like “discovery.” It’s all about figuring out the goals of the product or web site you are building.
