Since its inception, Kovair has achieved a deep understanding of users in terms of what they need, what they value and their feedback on the limitations of our products.
Kovair also believes that User interface design (UI) is directly related to user experience (UX), and it is important to have both of them right! The release of Kovair ALM Studio 10.5 facilitates the ALM end-users with real-time access to information when and where they need. Kovair ALM Studio 10.5 features a touch-friendly UI that is optimized for business users. This revamped user interface will help users retrieve information faster and complete the tasks quicker and more efficiently. The primary focus of the new UI is to ensure simple and quick access to content that ALM users are utilizing frequently and thus make that access more intuitive and minimize the clicks required.
