Abstract

Copernica Marketing Software is only available in a full web version, and is not yet fully accessible for mobile devices. During your internship you’ll develop the first prototype for a mobile version.

Context of the project within the organization Mobile phones and tablets are accountable for 10% of the total online traffic through browsers. Forecasts predict even higher numbers for the future. For some functionalities in our software, like email statistics or send reports, accessibility through mobile devices would enable our users to monitor their emailings whenever and wherever they are. Mobile accessibility helps Copernica improve the user experience of our software and enhance customer satisfaction.

The problem that has to be solved Our software is not yet optimally accessible for mobile devices. For some features however this would be a valuable addition.

Possible research questions

Which features of the software should be accessible through a mobile device?

How do I make these features accessible with a mobile device?

Should I create a new interface or find a way to automatically resize the current version for mobile devices?

Which techniques can I use and are supported by the major smartphone operating systems?
