Amongst other things, having a well-thought-out and uniform design across your digital platforms will help establish a strong brand identity.2.     Good UX design upfront can reduce costs further down the line Investing in UX upfront can prevent usability issues in the first instance, which is naturally more cost-effective than fixing them with major product redesigns or bug patches. Through processes such as prototyping, you can ensure that you can scope and test all feature requirements, designs, and information architecture at the prototyping stage. This ensures developers are able to provide far more accurate estimates of time scales and costs to complete the project. 3.     Create traffic Having a well-established UI/UX function is a great way to ensure you are delivering a stand-out product in a saturated and competitive market.
