During 2006, Nucleus was commissioned by Standard Chartered Bank’s web team in Singapore to address customer concerns with the usability of the bank’s main corporate online banking application – straight2bank.
Nucleus undertook a programme of usability research that included in-depth accompanied browse / interviews with existing users in Hong Kong and Singapore. A detailed report covering the key usability issues and recommendations to address these was produced. We then consolidated our recommendations in a detailed set of online design guidelines to enable the in-house Standard Chartered technical team to carry out the implementation.
The site won a number of industry awards for its innovative approach to online banking and best practice levels of usability. Global Finance magazine voted the revised Standard Chartered straight2bank application:
