UX Development and mobile application development outsourcing - redefined
Till few years back, OEMs bank on the list of features of their product, web site or mobile application to differentiate themselves. But today, however rich the functionalities are, products reach among the customers is primarily dependent on its aesthetics and ease of use. Even the cost factor has become less significant when compared to the pride in owning a stylish gizmo. Thus to create a truly successful product, it is crucial to adapt User Experience engineering aspect as a part of product development.
Embien has helped created great products for customers with its rich partner ecosystem. We have developed a variety of products for different target customer segments and driven up market shares of our customers. We have brought to life attractive and functional embedded device applications, mobile apps, web applications and PC based applications. With our application development outsourcing services, we have also helped our customers migrate from one code base to another seamlessly.
Embien understands the importance of incorporating the thoughts of the user during a product design to ensure high adoption. We do a detail analysis on the target customers, create user personas, and undertake a studious design process. For each stage of UX Development process, we collaborate with the customer to have maximum impact. Whether it is choosing the color of the UI or type of materials for the enclosure, the design choices are communicated along with full pros and cons of that approach. Customer feedback is incorporated and rapid prototypes/designs are created. Usability testing is also done in each stage to ensure that the final user experiences joy in using the product.
With deep understanding of customer behavior and domain dynamics, we have create winning products across different industry verticals differentiating with its usability, performance and rich UI. We can localize and customize them for different geographies and in different languages.
Embedded GUI Development
Nowadays significant share in embedded systems has a capable display systems with multi-touch interface. We have been working in such systems for the more than a decade and know in-depth the technologies associated. Embien have ported different Graphical User Interface (GUI) Libraries on to various embedded systems and developed applications in the following technologies:
- DirectFB, MiniGUI, X Windows, Nano-X(Microwindows)
- SDL - Simple DirectMedia Layer

There are many scenarios when a customer wants to move from one technology to another. It might be due the obsolescence of that technology, or availability of better choice driven by market competition. But in most cases, the current development team might not be equipped for the new technology and are in need of right partners. Embien offers its services for migration from one technology to another and ensure superior functionality over the original design. We also dedicate ourselves to train the development team with the new technology and make user that they can manage the product by themselves.
Once such scenario is migration to Android. The embedded UI market has been flooded with multiple options like Microsoft .NET, Linux graphics libraries etc. But android with its high penetration on embedded graphics market, forces shift of many of these legacy applications to Android. Embien has helped many customers in such migration successfully and help them consolidate their lead.
