Virtual Customer Problem
Every software vendor has concerns before the product release. Every
customer has similar concerns while evaluating the product.
our customers be able to install/upgrade the product?
we really need the product if we are unable to install it or
have problems installing it ?
there any usability issues?
Many usability issues lead to a big problems when users start
using the application
Are there any functional problems?
We better drop the product evaluation since some of the major
functions don't work properly
there any performance/scalability issues?
It takes a long time to load the application or the product is
not scalable at all. It means that software has big limitations
and that's not acceptable
Are there any problems with the user's guide?
user guide cover all product features? Is it well organized?
Are all steps and product features described clearly? What are
we supposed to do if we cannot use the user's guide because it
is unclear, has poorly described features, context and factual errors?
Are there any security vulnerabilities?
Do we really need the product with security holes? Does it work
with the latest hotfixes?
Are there any hardware/software incompatibilities?
If the product is not compatible with our hardware that means
it does not work for us. We better consider another products.
