UX Research, Product Director Analysis, and Sales Feedback uncovered the customer pain-point of jumping between applications in Follett's Enterprise Suite in order to achieve their user goals. The process of intuitively gathering data and then being able to easily act on that data needed to be addressed in improving Follett's User eXperience.

We redesigned the UX/UI of our public schools library webapp Destiny Discover with a renewed focus on the needs and goals of our identified personas: Librarians and Students. In an effort to resolve identified usability issues we added industry leading features with a Home Page Dashboard UI displaying contextual and actionable data for each targeted persona.

Based on UX Research, the new Librarian Dashboard prioritizes library inventory and usage, while the new Student Dashboard focuses on reading assignments and due dates. Due to tighter integration within our Enterprise Suite of products, both will include personalized book title recommendations based on machine learning, enhanced searching of book titles/educational resources, and the ability to request school resources such as tablet devices, microscopes, and calculators. Please see #6 for the Results Report of this Case Study.

"I am pleased to recommend Adam Fields for any position related to User Experience (UX) design. Adam served as a Senior Manager at Follett School Solutions under my supervision, where he made invaluable contributions to our team, the people he managed, and the projects he led.
During his tenure at Follett, Adam played a pivotal role in shaping the user experience of our award-winning library management application, Destiny, in particular he redesigned our legacy online public access catalog creating a modern elementary and young adult access catalog. His keen eye for detail, discipline to user testing combined with a deep understanding of user needs, allowed him to craft intuitive and visually appealing layouts that greatly enhanced the usability of our products."
