Better Software for Companies

Employees have to use more and more often software selected by the company, and their own work performance is dependent on them. For this reason, the functionality and usability of the software significantly affects the company’s performance.

According to many psychologists who have conducted research into working life, work has never been as demanding on the brain’s information processing capacity as it is now. Information expires quickly and technological applications are constantly updated. Adopting new information is difficult if the software in use do not work properly. The N4S program strives to solve how companies would be able to obtain better software, and what kinds of new tools could be created for software developers.

The academic coordinator of the program, Tommi Mikkonen, wants to examine how the software used by industrial companies could be improved to become more user-friendly. Therefore the program develops new tools for analytics and systems that report bugs directly to the developers.
