User research: summary
I conducted interviews and created empathy maps to understand the users I’m
designing for and their needs. A primary user group identified through research
was fitness trainers who work as freelancers.
This user group confirmed initial assumptions about lack of knowledge in bookkeeping, but
research also revealed that knowledge was not the only factor limiting users from bookkeeping.
Other user problems included diverse income, obligations, interests, or challenges that make it
difficult to record their financial transaction and track their inventory.
User research: pain points
Time
It would be time saving if
they can record financial
transactions anytime

devices.
Knowledge
Lack of knowledge in
bookkeeping
procedures. Lack of
guides in related apps.
Financial
Lack of affordable and
free apps on
bookkeeping. Lack of
finance to hire

income and expenses,
most freelance fitness
