Cost Effective IT Solutions Tailored to Meet your Business Needs

The UTO is more than a project center for enterprise tool or centralized support of things like Email or My ASU. Our expertise with technology in ASU's diverse and ever-changing environment makes us a great option for technology partnerships within the community. While you focus on your business, we'll take care of your technology. 

Whether you're looking for timely security updates for your workstations, server support, or advanced web development; UTO is here to assist.

Partnership options include long-term, FTE-based agreements guaranteeing resource bandwidth each week, or hourly support for smaller or one-time project needs. Some hourly options are unavailable or otherwise limited based on both staff availability as well as the maturity of the UTO's current relationship with, or knowledge of, the supported area or need.

User Research helps improve user experiences through the analysis of real users interacting with products. Our services are grounded in behavioral observations which generate actionable findings about aspects of your product that meet user expectations as well as areas that require refinement.

Our services allow organizations to validate their assumptions at any stage of the design and development process, from low fidelity sketches and wireframes to live websites and applications. We tailor each research project to reflect unique goals and timelines.  We can help establish benchmark and recurring KPI (Key Progress Indicators) to measure improvement. These services include: usability testing, user interviewing, surveys, and information architecture studies.

To determine if your website or application is accessible, we provide customized web accessibility evaluations. We test for accessibility and WCAG 2.1 compliance with automated tools, assistive technologies, keyboard access, and code review. Our thorough, easy-to-understand reports identify specific issues, explain what they are, and provide you with recommendations and resources to fix them.  Pricing is influenced by the number and complexity of the pages/screens being tested. Minimum of 5 pages.

Evaluation of desktop sites include HTML code validation, semi-automated evaluation, manual checks (of code, keyboard access and screen reader access), as well as a written report including priority ranking on issues and a summary of findings to help direct remediation efforts.  Evaluation of mobile (responsive) sites and applications include manual screen reader tests, as well as a written report including priority ranking on issues and a summary of findings to help direct remediation efforts.

Equally important is their focus on developing strong interpersonal relationships with the stakeholders.
