By Patty Cobb – Lexmark: Lexmark’s systematic development approach helps eliminate barriers to workplace success
Thirty years ago, the first Lexmark devices were shipped to customers with the aim of supporting a broad range of workers in a variety of workplaces, including offices, retail stores, warehouses, schools and hospitals. Wherever they are placed, usability and accessibility for all is a key design criteria for Lexmark devices.
Accessibility is a key objective in every phase of our development process—to make each and every product usable for customers of all abilities. We have defined processes and methodologies to ensure our products are accessible, and we rely on customer input to make design changes and test features.
Our process is simple: we start with the customer. We want to help all Lexmark users to be more productive so we take a systematic approach to developing technologies that eliminate physical barriers to workplace success, making common tasks like printing or scanning a document easy for everyone.
