In today’s fast-paced business environment, effective communication is at the heart of success, and meetings play a pivotal role in collaboration. However, the sheer volume of meetings can lead to critical insights being lost in the shuffle, making it challenging to keep track of decisions and action items.
Our mission: Empower teams and individuals with a platform that records, transcribes, and summarizes all their meetings, unlocking the hidden insights within.
Meetings are essential for collaboration, but they often lead to information overload, time-consuming transcriptions, knowledge silos, poor retention, and difficulties in diverse work environments. These challenges hinder productivity and the sharing of valuable insights.
Loopin was born to simplify meetings, making them more efficient and ensuring that critical insights are never lost in the shuffle.
As the Lead Designer at Loopin, I undertook a pivotal role in reshaping our product’s design landscape. When I joined, the company was undergoing a critical transition from relying on an external agency for the past two years and wanted to bringing the design process in-house.
I collaborated closely with my Product Manager and CEO as an integral part of the product team. Additionally, I worked with the engineering team, primarily focusing on the frontend, to ensure the handoff was seamless.
My team, consisting of four engineers and one product manager, followed an agile development approach, emphasizing rapid and frequent releases to ship fast.
Understanding our Users
To gain deeper insights into our user base, I collaborated with my Product Manager to implement a straightforward survey that was strategically introduced during the onboarding process and upon launching the dashboard for existing users.
Although a meeting tool like Loopin have general users, my goal was to dive into the specifics of our user demographics in relation to their work functions. This valuable data empowered me to gain a deeper understanding of our users providing valuable insights into their mental models.
I partnered with my PM to get on user interview calls with users from various domains like Customer Success, Product Management, Sales. I also spoke with my internal teams as they were using the product for all internal meetings.
On top of this I conducted a UX Audit: Conducting this study allowed me to obtain valuable insights from both internal and external perspectives. I go to know key aspects of our product’s usability, shed light on user pain points, and afforded a comprehensive understanding of where I would need to focus.
