User experience User interface
Coral world is a global group of underwater viewing centers, providing tourist attractions and preserving marine life.
One of their establishments is the Eilat Red Sea Underwater Observatory.
Design a full scale operation system for task and live stock management from architecture to hand-off.
The project included both user and admin side.
THE CHALLENGE WE FACED
To create a brand-new operation system and tailor it to the observatory’s exact needs, I’ve interviewed the employees and the CEO.
That gave me a better understanding of their pain points and their current approach while operating.
The findings showed that the operation works in a funnel-like structure.
I’ve decided that the systems user flow should be similar, in order to ease the transformation to the digital environment.
At first, I reviewed products from the same field.
It proved useful but they missed some features, looked old-fashioned, and counterintuitive.
So to conduct quality research, I decided to explore a different angle and looked at project management apps like Asana, Trello, and Jira.
I used to wait tables at a restaurant during my days as a student Which sparked the idea to get inspiration from apps like Tab-it and Beecomm, to get the “on the move” point of view.
Users can monitor livestock, add or check their assignments,
and generate reports.
admins can also send messages to their employees and do the task management straight from the app.
Data collection system that willallow the users to issue reports and track livestock quantities for each exhibit.
This project allowed me to learn a lot about the interesting world of sea observatory management.
I’ve learned most from talking with the employees. Their inputs guided me and affirmed some of my inspiration for design decisions.
It was also one of my first projects where I had full ownership of the entire UX process, allowing me to test my time management abilities while working with the client.
