The Solar Labs

tsl%252Bportfolio%252Bicon-03.jpg

Project: The Solar Labs’ mission is to accelerate the country’s transition into solar energy. Currently, we are working on an innovative new product to help design engineers create solar solutions and iterate on them quickly.

Type of Project: Enterprise Solutions

Team: I am the sole product designer working in a cross functional team of engineers, PMs, and final stakeholders - sales specialists and design engineers

Duration: December 2018 - Ongoing

Due to the NDA I signed, I won’t be able to share the details of the project. For more information, mail me at viba98@gmail.com

Goals:   Currently the time taken to generate an initial design report is around 1 week (~36 hours). We aim to cut this down to 12 hours at the end of phase 1.  To see an initial conversion rate of 50% and a retention rate of 30% at the end of Phase 1.

Looking forward

Over the next couple of months, we hope to measure the following metrics:

  • Conversion Rate : the number of users who convert to using our software

  • Retention Rate: The number of projects each of these users complete using our software

  • Time: The time taken to do so compared to the time it would’ve taken on other softwares

  • Ease of Onboarding: We hope to gain this information through both qualitative and quantitative feedback

  • Performance: The number of manual changes the average user makes to the automated solutions we provide

WHAT I’ve LEARNT so far

  • Working in a small team: Communication is key. It is vital for everyone to be on the same page at all times. Through the duration of this project, I have spent time working both on site & remotely and the type of communication through each of these phases was quite different - but we have learnt to adapt.

  • Prioritising on tasks: Since we have a limited number of employees on board, it is crucial to make sure that we prioritise on the right tasks to complete. This means that building an effective road map with the end goal in mind was a super important part of the project.

  • Communication during hand offs: Due to the complexity of the design system, it hasn’t been easy to hand off projects. So I work closely with the developers to help them build the right interactions for our users.
