As technology has become more sophisticated, so have users. Expectations run high for easy-to-use software. And where do they experience their first impression of software? When the installation begins!
To exceed expectations, check out these three tips:
Tip #1: Build Single Suite Installations
Users want to install once. Create installers that bundle multiple products together into one unified installation.
Tip #2: Shorten Download Wait Time
Time expectations have shortened and users want downloads to start ASAP. Build installations with technology that reduces their wait time.
Tip #3: Freshen Up How the Installation Looks
Today’s users know what modern looks like and they want up-to-date technology (think DPI). Create a run-time that offers a fresh, current experience.
