The firm is a platform for moderated user research that makes it simple to record, summarise, and distribute user dialogue feedback. It enables companies to detect usability issues and draw conclusions from user interviews rapidly.
By allowing product teams to quickly perform user interviews and usability testing to assess their concepts, designs, beta software, and websites, Betafi claims that it is revolutionizing the field of user experience research.
It is simpler to communicate and create feedback loops during the product development process thanks to the platform’s integration with popular product design and collaboration tools like Zoom, Miro, Figma, and Adobe XD.
According to Betafi, its users can save up to 30% on overall research time and effort, freeing them up to concentrate on gleaning valuable ideas for amazing product development.
Customers helped co-create the business, which went live on Product Hunt in September. Since then, users have completed over 1,500 hours of feedback calls and platform utilization has climbed by 50% month over month.
