You can track your service’s up time, down time, and speed, but what about the things you aren’t tracking? Do you know why your users depend on your service? What do they do when they need help? Are you meeting their expectations?

During this talk User Researcher, Sylvia Perez, will present to you the UX approach to service design, its benefits, and review a case study of an ITS service that was enhanced as a result of this type of evaluation.
