    • Delvinia INSIGHTS Experience Design Considerations Report Produced in July 2009 © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Our Commitment to Insight Delvinia is committed to continuously uncovering data-driven insights that will help us better understand, and ultimately design superior Digital Customer Experiences for Canadians. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Background Delvinia has developed proprietary tools to access data-driven insights: AskingCanadians™, our online consumer research panel, and our Insight Engine, a database of digital and other consumer insights. By leveraging these tools we are able to track key attitudes and behaviours of consumers across Canada that inform our interactive strategy and design solutions. In order to give you a taste of our insight capabilities, we’ve compared and contrasted the self-reported behaviours of 4 consumer groups in the Canadian marketplace: Those who Don Tapscott* termed the “Net-Generation” (NGen) aged 18-30, Gen X aged 31-44, Boomers aged 45-65, and 65+. *Author of Grown Up Digital © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Methodology  Results are based on 11,559 regionally and demographically representative* AskingCanadians™ panelists surveyed, 50/50 gender split, broken down as follows:  1,112 18-30 year olds (NGen)  3,432 31-44 year olds (Gen X)  6,222 45-65 year olds (Boomers)  793 65+  Data was collected from October 2008 – March 2009.  This deck will review these groups in terms of their: − Online Accessibility Issues − Website Preferences *Representative of Canada, based on Stats Can figures © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp.

    • Summary of Findings © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Summary of Findings  There are factors impairing Canadians’ use of computers – impaired vision and headaches being the two most common. It will become increasingly important for website designs to take these factors into consideration.  Of those website features designed to create easier user experiences, Canadians of all ages consider auto-fill forms (56%) and descriptive links (52%) to be Very Important, followed by adjustable font size (39%), adjustable font colour (30%), adjustable background colour (25%), and lastly customer service via phone (21%).  Canadians’ opinions of the importance of downloadable transcripts/ videos/ songs differ with age, with 50% more NGeners vs. 65+ declaring this feature Very Important.  In terms of additional website preferences, the percentage of Canadians declaring the features surveyed to be Very Important are as follows: direct homepage link (75%), bigger easily accessible links (41%), properly tagged images (39%), neutral use of gender (27%), black/dark font only for text (24%), and consistent font style throughout the site (23%).  Properly tagged images received a wide variety of opinions, perhaps indicating a lack of understanding of the benefit of this feature; while neutral use of gender was significantly more important for women vs. men of all ages. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Detailed Findings Accessibility © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Accessibility Summary  Impaired vision and headaches are the two factors that most impact Canadians’ use of computers. While vision is an issue for over 50% of Canadians overall, headaches are primarily suffered by younger generations, with over 34% of those 44 and younger declaring them an issue.  In terms of website features designed to create easier user experiences, auto-fill forms & descriptive links are considered most important by all age groups.  Interestingly, having the option of customer service via phone is considered the least important feature by all age groups, followed by adjustable background colour.  Downloadable transcripts, videos & songs are considered significantly more important by younger Canadians, with 50% more NGeners declaring this a Very Important feature (46%) vs. Canadians 65+ (23%).  Adjustable font size and colour is considered at least Somewhat Important by more than half of all age groups, all of whom agree that adjustable size trumps adjustable colour. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Factors Impairing Computer Use Impaired vision is an issue for a significant portion of all age groups, particularly Boomers. Meanwhile, it appears that headaches plague Canadians 44 and under, with over 20% of NGeners declaring this a factor that affects their computer use. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Adjustable Font Size & Colour Canadians feel that the ability to adjust font size is more important than adjusting font colour, although over 50% of all age groups feel both size and colour are at least Somewhat Important. Of all groups, Boomers are most likely to consider font adjustment Very Important. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Background Colour & Forms Adjustable background colour is even less important than adjustable font colour, and the majority of Canadians 65+ consider it Not Important at all. On the other hand, about 75% of Canadians of all ages consider auto-fill forms to be Very/Somewhat Important. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Transcripts & Links Downloadable transcripts, videos & songs are considered more important for younger Canadians, while 58% of Canadians 65+ consider these features unimportant. Meanwhile, the majority of all age groups consider descriptive links to be a Very/Somewhat Important feature of a website. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Customer Service via Phone Interestingly, the majority of Canadians of all age groups do not consider it important for a site to offer customer service via telephone. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Detailed Findings Website Preferences © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Site Preference Summary  Both male & female Canadians of all ages consider a direct homepage link to be the most important feature of all website preferences surveyed.  The majority of Canadians consider bigger, easily accessible links to be important – this is particularly true of Boomers and Canadians 65+.  Font colour and style consistency is significantly less important for Canadians, with only about one quarter of respondents declaring this feature to be Very Important.  The neutral use of gender is more important for females vs. males of all ages – but particularly for female NGeners, 20% more of whom consider this to be important vs. their male counterparts.  The importance of properly tagged images garnered a wider range of responses, with 42% of NGen males considering this Not Important and 65% of males 65+ considering it Very Important. Canadians may not understand the benefits of this feature. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Direct Homepage Link The great majority of both males and females of all age groups consider having a direct homepage link to be Very Important – more so than any other site preference surveyed. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Bigger, Easily Accessible Links Not surprisingly, older Canadians consider bigger, easily accessible links to be more important than younger Canadians. NGen and Boomers do not show significant gender differences. However, 5% more Gen X females vs. males consider this to be a Very Important feature, while 5% more 65+ females vs. males declare this to be Not Important. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Only Black or Dark Font for Text Neither males nor females of any age group feel strongly about the use of only black or dark coloured fonts for text. In fact, over 50% of both genders declare this feature to be Not Important. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Consistent Use of Font Style Similar to their feelings about font colour, only about half of Canadians consider the use of a consistent font style to be Very or Somewhat Important. The only generation revealing a real gender difference is NGen, with 8% more males declaring this to be a Very Important feature. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Neutral Use Of Gender Females of all generations consider the neutral use of gender to be more important than their male counterparts. Interestingly, this gender difference is most pronounced for members of the Net Generation, with 20% more female vs. male NGeners declaring this to be Very or Somewhat Important. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Properly Tagged Images Canadians seem to have varied opinions about this particular feature, which may in fact indicate a lack of understanding of the purpose and benefits of tagged images. © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.

    • Latest News Delvinia Launches New Projects, Grows the Client Roster and Adds Talent: July 28, 2009 – Toronto A busy spring has turned to a bustling summer at Delvinia with its recent redesign and launch of Manulife’s CoverMe.com website. It’s also been busy working with some new clients and adding some new talent to their growing team. Manulife’s website (www.coverme.com) has just re-launched with a cleaner user friendly experience that has been years in the making. Delvinia and Manulife have been working together for more than three years and throughout that period they continually added functionality and optimization to the site, with great success and measureable results. As sophisticated companies continue to invest in optimizing the user experience to raise customer satisfaction and engagement through their on-line assets, the digital space continues to gain prominence within the marketing sphere. In fact, Delvinia too, has been busy with new clients on its roster including The Weather Network (www.theweathernetwork.com), Canada’s top news and information website, The Richard Ivey School of Business, (www.ivey.uwo.ca) one of Canada’s leading business schools, among others. To help ensure Delvinia maintains its service philosophy it has broadened the team by hiring Andrew Kinnear. Kinnear joins the interactive team at Delvinia as an Account Director. Prior to joining Delvinia, Kinnear was associated with the interactive agency Tribal DDB where he developed advanced interactive marketing programs for an international client roster. He brings years of critical eCRM thinking and digital experience to his new position. http://www.delvinia.com/news © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp. All rights reserved.
    • Latest News Delvinia delivers customer insight in half the time with SAS Delvinia Interactive helps its Fortune Global 500 clientele understand their online customers better by delivering insights about the online digital customer experience. The firm wanted to increase its competitive advantage by using SAS® to develop an Insight Engine that allows the firm to analyze more data than before, in half the time. Delvinia knew its future lies in applying data-driven insights to its client solutions. The challenge was finding a cost-effective way to implement data analysis into the firm’s established methodology. After investing $1 million on a yearlong project to develop the new concept in-house, Delvinia found the obvious solution was choosing SAS Analytics (data mining and reporting) to drive its business analytics. The result was the Delvinia Insight Engine – a data warehouse comprised of information from the quarterly profiling surveys sent to the firm’s online panelists asking specific questions about their digital habits (How many hours a week do you spend online?); life stage (Are you planning a home renovation project this year?); attitudes (Do you feel technology makes it easier to stay connected with family and work?); and data from outside sources such as the Bureau of Broadcast Measurement (BBM), as well as projected census data. “In building the Insight Engine from scratch, we wanted to pick the right software without compromise and after all our analysis it became clear that SAS was the only analytics solution we would have confidence in. With SAS, we have this data warehouse asset that we’re able to mine and use to help us move that much further down the path of understanding.” http://www.sas.com/success/Delvinia.html © 2009 Delvinia Interactive Corp.
