LA Promotion handheld device
As mobile computing becomes increasingly popular in the fashion retail industry, challenges emerge pertaining to usability, system tailoring, and enhancing the manager-client user experience.

These issues were addressed at LA Promotion (a facility where selected clients can acquire products three months before the greater public) by an Avenue A | Razorfish team that conducted ethnographic-style observational research, interviewed stakeholders and conducted a usability audit of LA Promotion’s various systems.

The team translated their observations into a series of recommendations, requirements and first prototype, which are discussed in a paper, that was first presented at the dux05 conference and is now published in AIGA’s Gain: Journal of Business and Design.

The prototype focuses specifically on enhancing the mobile device used by managers as they guide clients through their LA Promotion experience.
