OUR MISSION

For many people, the annual tax return is the stuff of nightmares; the WISO steuer: range of software provides support and helps with completing and submitting the tax return. Ergosign redesigned the applications’ interface, all the while respecting the platform-specific characteristics. The focus in this regard lay on improving the UI and the UX and creating a standardized look and feel.

"With Ergosign, we’ve got the ideal development partner on board who helps us to manage the balancing act [...]."

CHALLENGE

When it comes to tax software, it’s important to create a standardized look and feel for different systems. What should be created is a modern and sustainable design that offers an excellently optimized user experience. Also, for the users, operation should be designed so that it is as intuitive and clear as possible.

SOLUTION

Thanks to the long-lasting partnership between Buhl and Ergosign, the team acquired extensive knowledge about the software. The optimized navigation and tooltips displayed to the user make it easier for them to use the software.
