Project IDEAL HOME PRINTING EXPERIENCE

HP2 1

OVERVIEW

HP was closely monitoring changes in the printing marketplace.  While home printing was in decline overall, it was trending upwards for home-based businesses relying on printing solutions that match the size and needs of their businesses.

IMPACT

“The Lextant research was one of the most transformational pieces of work I saw in my career at HP.”

01 THE CHALLENGE

Identify the ideal home business printing experience.

As a perennial innovator in the printing space, HP knew that a deeper understanding of how and why small businesses used printing as a value add could inform how they approached the performance and economics of a next-generation HP printer portfolio.

02 THE RESPONSE

Measuring what matters.

HP partnered with Lextant to unlock the unmet needs in the category by first creating a model for the ideal home business printing experience visualizing the emotional return that home-based business owners said the experience should provide, including product benefits that would make that experience possible.

We deployed our Experience Metrics™ process to quantify and prioritize prospective design themes.  HP was able to evaluate product concepts and prototypes against the ideal experience metrics to clarify which design choices were most effective in providing the desired benefits consumers would find compelling.

03 THE RESULT

Moving the needle.

By identifying insights about the ideal experience, and then structuring them for experience metrics analysis, Lextant helped the HP team conceive, develop and commercialize a portfolio of transformative home business printer solutions.
