Give Microsoft Your Input and Get Free Software

Below is a cool offer from the Microsoft Usability team...

Do you wish software was easier to use? Microsoft Business Solutions products are being designed and created for people like you. By participating in Microsoft User Research you can directly impact the design of our software, thereby making it better and easier for you to use. You’ll receive complimentary software for participating in our usability research studies. Sign up here!

Get involved in the product development process at Microsoft. Help us understand your needs by signing up to participate in Microsoft Usability studies!

Some activities you would be able to participate in include:

· Lab Studies & Focus Groups: These studies will give you hands-on and detailed experience with Microsoft products that are currently under development. Your input goes directly into product development.
· Site Visits: We’ll come to you! A Usability Engineer will visit you at your workplace to gain a better understanding of your work environment in order to help build products and/or solutions that meet your business needs.
· Online Surveys & Online Focus Groups: Participate in our studies from the convenience of your home or workplace.

To register for future usability studies, simply fill out a brief questionnaire. You will be contacted for opportunities that match your background and/or interests. All scheduled participants will receive a software gratuity after participating in a study! Contact uccoord@microsoft.com for more information.
