In todays' world of exploring everything through screens, we are finding that some aspects of online technology are still being taken for granted.
One specific application, Mega Menus, offers high quality useability and mega navigation (mega nav) for sites with many products and links.
From recent conversations with a group of business owners, it was interesting to find their comfort zone was to request what they knew from their first web developments, not realising they were already familair with new technology that could benefit users on their sites.
Many people will be very familiar with using Mega Menus from visiting various online retail businesses, yet may not have considered how they can improve the user experience on their own website. Mega Menus can be applied in a number of ways; from large menus with multiple links or products, through to small menus and image navigation included to assist spatial searches.
Working with technology every day we never take for granted how much audiences can benefit from new applications. Here at Koda, Mega Menus have been a part of our service offering for a long time, though now with so much more emphasis on ecommerce it is becoming more widely used as a tool for driving an enhanced user experience.
Mega Menus work best when you hover or tap over a main menu item and the drop down will expand and display further search options. This makes it much easier to find things quickly without having to click through multiple steps. Creating a more streamlined experience for users through better functionality is then likely to result in an increase in orders & purchases online.
The technology is fast, simple to use and intuatve. One size doesn’t have to fit all when it comes to Mega Menus. With so many different device sizes there are many options from Responsive Mega Menus, Hero Menus, Uber, Macho, and Giga.
These applications further enhance the user experience to assist visitors to find what they want fast. The feedback from using high quality technology applications is always positive, so understandably we actively encourage businesses to apply high useability navigation upgrades.
