“We engaged Oxford Tech + UX at RealAge repeatedly for a wholesale overhaul of the RealAge product strategy, competitive positioning and site and test experience. Each time, Beverly's team worked intimately with the RealAge and Hearst teams to lead toward consensus around a final product direction via multiple rounds of review and discussion.
RealAge began working with Oxford Tech + UX with technical work on registration migration and single sign-on that involved consolidating over a dozen different registration flows onto the Hearst platform. Oxford Tech + UX conceptualized RealAge’s first iPhone application and site personalization around the user’s RealAge Test results.
We re- engaged Oxford Tech + UX for a much larger site and product overhaul. From strategic review, including a comprehensive and very detailed review of the competitive landscape and positioning, UX, and business model, and demographic, social and traffic metrics. Along with a detailed review of over 100 internal documents and the current site, this led to comprehensive strategic recommendations for brand repositioning, business strategy and product features.
We further engaged Oxford Tech + UX for user experience deliverables that began with conceptual directions and ended with a comprehensive set of wireframes, sitemap, navigation, content mapping and user flows for a possible new vision of RealAge, including site personalization, conversion optimization and an overhauled RealAge Test UI and test results experience.
Beverly and her team merges business acumen and KPI results-orientation with deep domain experience in consumer health, publishing, ecommerce, software and the web. She works collaboratively while leading decisively toward consensus, and their deliverables are comprehensive, detailed, clear and actionable.
I would highly recommend Oxford Tech + UX to anyone seeking product strategy and user experience assistance.”

“I worked with Oxford Tech + UX to establish an international visas information portal for Oxford University students who are seeking international internships. Beverly was a pleasure to work with. Beverly's team worked closely with the University through many rounds of discussion on direction and planning. The depth of content Oxford Tech + UX delivered went far above and beyond the scope that had been agreed to for our first release. The website went live exactly on time, and information provided has proven very useful. I would highly recommend Oxford Tech + UX's services to other companies and other institutions of higher education.”

“I engaged Oxford Tech + UX on two projects. The first was content strategy, navigation and site copy for our own website, ECommercePartners.net. Beverly’s firm's knowledge of the ecommerce landscape and the software development life-cycle made her the perfect person to assist in content reorganization and writing, and we received many compliments and a boost in new business from the updated site post-launch.
The second project was a redesign and platform migration for the bath products company Sabon. Oxford Tech + UX created innovative, detailed and comprehensive annotated wireframes of the new experience, including many new feature and user interaction proposals. She also delivered major parts of a comprehensive Ecommerce Requirements Specification that included business requirements and goals, competitive landscape analysis, personas, in-depth site metrics analysis, content strategy and navigational hierarchy reorganization proposals, and prioritized features and functional requirements. Beverly worked directly with our team and the client to understand business goals as a framework for the proposed experience. Throughout the project, Oxford Tech + UX focused on user experience ideas and solutions that could deliver major boosts in site traffic, consumer loyalty, and revenue.
I continue to seek other large projects in which we can work with Oxford Tech+ UX again to help ensure the best user experience and product strategy documentation for our clients. I would highly recommend Oxford Tech + UX to anyone seeking premium product strategy, requirements analysis and user experience services.”

“I’ve been working with Beverly and Oxford Tech + UX in a number of capacities for over two years. She has attended my Ultra Light Startups events and been a great conduit to speakers and experts in the UX/IxD space. My organization sponsored her first-ever UX Awards ceremony, which was very well run and had all the top UX professionals in New York and beyond.
More recently, I’ve begun working with Oxford Tech + UX on my startup, BrightMap. She is an active user of the system and had plenty of great feedback on the user experience right from the first moment. She took the time to write up a very comprehensive, very thoughtful report about the product and its UX, which has driven many changes in the system – both tactical and strategic. The product is much better for Oxford Tech + UX's feedback.
Beverly is a great person to work with and super knowledgable and respected in her field. If you get a chance, definitely take the opportunity to work with Oxford Tech + UX. “

“Beverly is a very insightful and thorough user experience analyst. Her company has helped me improve both information architecture for marketing sites and user interactions in web apps. Beverly gets the “big picture” quickly, and uses this understanding to spot weaknesses effectively and provide great ideas for improvements. She also brings an understanding of project management, to which end she will prioritize problems to fix and areas to split-test, and help her clients create a road-map toward a more effective user experience. She communicates effectively and is easy to work with. Unconditionally recommended.”
"...When other recommenders say she is a top 1%-2% thinker and producer, take note! Beverly has her finger on the pulse of software development, design innovation, and project excellence. I highly recommend her leadership and contributions. The user experience with digital communication is evolving quickly - Beverly is here and beyond that curve." - Heather Vaughn on Linkedin
