Mobile E-Filing Application (Thomson Reuters)
In 2013 Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting developed the first mobile app to tap into functionality of their desktop corporate tax compliance suite, ONESOURCE Income Tax. The video above shows the final pre-release prototype. The development of personas (imaginary but typical users) helped in the evolution of the final demo script.
Other UX artifacts for the project include a sitemap/flowchart showing each screen or page of the application:
The screenshot below is from the desktop software. Creating a mobile interface to access all the detail shown would not be easy.
Once the details and workflow are finalized, a high-quality prototype is built (HTML/CSS). It is a functioning interface but does not yet interact with the database.
