It is important to understand how critical of a role UX and UI design plays in the success of any business. Whether you are launching an app, website, or software interface, you must ensure it is well-designed, can be used quickly and effectively, and overall keeps users engaged. Here are just five key benefits of having a strong UX and UI design team -
1. Increased brand reputation and customer satisfaction
Investing in and having a well-designed website/app will undoubtedly increase customer traffic/satisfaction/retention. A well-mapped-out and designed user journey will make your website or app easy and enjoyable to use, leaving users satisfied. 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. UI and UX designers play a critical part in crafting an engaging experience. Be it a well thought out user-journey or an efficient user interface, these are things that keep users engaged and likely to use your services time and time again.

5. Implementing real-life feedback
A design team will actively seek feedback from users, this plays a key factor in identifying any pain points, making it easier to improve and evolve your platform. By taking into account the user needs, chances are, this will then help to meet the business needs.
