Administration Software

Following an intense 18-month project, Linkup Studio successfully overhauled the design of InfoED Global, a sprawling B2B web platform consisting of over 30 individual modules. This revamped platform now empowers research institutions, universities, and major corporations to administer research more intuitively.

We modernized the operations of a three-decade-old company with a global client base spanning 50 countries. With Linkup Studio's contribution, the University of California now saves $1 million annually thanks to the optimized software. The National Institutes of Health has improved regulatory adherence, leading to a 50% reduction in their compliance audits. A recent InfoEd survey found 95% client satisfaction with the software, with 85% reporting cost savings. Our team continues to deliver tailored designs for new modules as requested by InfoEd's clientele.

Request to Breathe a New Life into the Platform

With 30 years of experience and thousands of clients, InfoED Global managers recognized the need to revamp their tremendous aging platform and cumbersome and inconvenient designs to appeal more to diverse research institutions.

Linkup Studio's design team stepped in to bringorder to the product chaos. We had to update hundreds of screens and scores of working modules to a uniform style, establish a visual hierarchy, integrate fonts, and introduce a design system while adhering to preset development constraints. Additionally, we were tasked with helping the company create contemporary marketing materials to attract and convert new customers.

Revitalizing the User Experience for InfoED Global

To make the experience of InfoED Global's users more appealing and enjoyable, we developed various product components catering to their diverse needs:

  • Optimizing Structural Elements. We devised a strategic hierarchy for page and table layouts to streamline navigation and interaction, allowing users to quickly grasp the system's functionality and take appropriate actions efficiently.
  • Simplifying the User Journey. Our team meticulously reworked the convoluted user journey, inherited from the platform's 10-year-old design, to create a more intuitive and seamless experience, enhancing user navigation and overall satisfaction.
  • Strategic Use of Color Accents. We employed color strategically in the user interface to emphasize critical elements, ensuring each color change added value and facilitated user interaction, with a focus on buttons, hover effects, and micro-interactions for enhanced clarity.
  • Harmonizing Design and Development. Our collaboration with the development team ensured that our design innovations were practical and could be integrated seamlessly into the existing platform, balancing creativity with technical feasibility.
  • Creating a Unified Design System. We compiled all newly introduced design elements, like icons, buttons, input fields, and color styles, into a comprehensive design system, ensuring consistency across the platform and simplifying future updates.
  • Responsive Design for Diverse Devices. We crafted a responsive interface that adjusts to various web screens, guaranteeing an optimal user experience across different devices and contributing to increased client engagement and satisfaction.
  • Expanding InfoED Global's Reach. Beyond system design, we played a key role in producing promotional materials, including mass-mail email campaign designs, helping to expand InfoED Global's clientele and sustain a contemporary brand image.
