Original Press Release:
Infragistics Launches Quince Pro
Subscription-based Service Enables Collaboration Among Design and Development Teams
PRINCETON, N.J., and ELSTREE, England, -- Infragistics, the world leader in user interface (UI) development tools and experts in the User Experience (UX) market, today launched Quince Pro, a private, secure and organized way to collaborate, communicate and cultivate private UX design libraries to ensure consistent user experiences across teams, departments and companies.
"Growing out of Quince, a free, interactive UI patterns and practices catalog, comes Quince Pro to enable developers, interactive designers and UX professionals to formalize and better collaborate and communicate with their implementation teams," said Dean Guida, President and CEO at Infragistics. "As a leader in UI development tools for more than 20 years, we've heard over and over again that one of the biggest challenges in developing better user interfaces with consistent and engaging user experiences is to bridge the gap between the design team and development team. Quince Pro is the perfect tool for just that."
Quince Pro is primarily targeted at UX experts, UI designers and interaction designers as a tool for them to formalize and better collaborate and communicate with implementation teams.
"Our team has been using Quince as a reference tool for the last year and had been thinking about creating a private design library of our own to help ensure our complex web application design remains usable and consistent," said Jane Austin, Head of User Experience Design at IG Index located in London. "We were put off by our knowledge of how difficult pattern libraries can be to maintain and to share. This is why we were delighted when we discovered Quince Pro. It's easy to use with an appealing interface which means it'll be easier to get buy-in from others in our company we want to share the patterns with. Its real-time collaborative interface will also allow us to support our team, many of whom work remotely. We are really excited about the prospect of building our own pattern library using Quince Pro."
In additional to online style guides, Quince Pro has many real-world usage scenarios including as:
-- A Design pattern research tool to capture well-established best practices for user interface design solutions;
-- An Application for collecting and sharing design ideas through the corkboard in Quince Pro that acts as a private workspace;
-- A Design collaboration tool with a dedicated library allowing team members to collaborate on designs together during the design stage of a user interface project.
