Dcovery – Case Study: “How can I show the benefits of the product during the on boarding?”

“How can I show the benefits of the product during the on boarding?”
Dcovery app (travel service) is a very powerful tool to use during a trip to bookmark places. As I tried the app, I found the current on boarding flow confusing so I decided to conduct some users interviews to understand where were the pain points. The usability testings confirmed my assumptions: it is almost impossible to understand what the service is and what the key features are. Users said they would not use the app as they did not understand the value of it.
Let’s see how a simpler and more visual on boarding explainer and a re-ordered flow can make miracles.
A current disorganized flow
Lost and upset (even angry) users
A new sequenced flow that shows the 4 main features

Abracadabra! Now users really understand what the app does.
The on boarding process explains what the app does by presenting the 4 main features, with short sentences and quick videos, enough to convince the user to give the app a try. The users will be more enthusiastic when they will fill the sign up form.
This new series of usability tests also revealed a few other elements that could be improved later on.
