The DOT Score is an in-house evaluation tool, created and adapted over months, to measure and evaluate the experience of digital products and services.
We looked at many UX heuristics to form the basis of the foundation of this score and then applied our expertise to create an inclusive quantifiable score relevant to today’s time.
Each heuristic is weighted and our own algorithm scores each of the six key heuristics out of 100, then gives an overall score. The DOT Score only measures UX, it doesn't factor in other aspects such as price, product selection, offline customer service and so on.
Measures the usefulness and appropriateness of the system to serve user needs of accomplishing a task.

The UAE is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. With over 200 nationalities and various cultural differences at play, how do you understand your customers and design a UX strategy to meet their growing expectations?
Think about the last few websites you visited. There’s a high probability that a good number ofthese visits were made using a mobile device. If this rings true, you’re definitely not alone (anddon’t worry - we’re not here to judge you on your possible mobile phone addiction).
When designing User Experience (UX), there are a number of heuristics UX-ers need to consider. Design and UI always feature as high priority and you see many websites with cool looking features, from parallax scrolling, full bleed images, and subtle animations, wide image shots etc. Sure, these all play a big part in the overall experience, but sometimes, users just want to be able to complete a task as quickly as possible. A key UX principle, which unfortunately is sometimes overlooked, is efficiency.
The recipe to delivering an incredible food delivery app. With a huge convenience culture in the UAE and a relatively young population from all over the world, with one of the highest smartphone penetrations, it's no wonder customers are demanding seamless, efficient experiences from brands. This, coupled with the pandemic, has given rise to many on-demand apps in the last few years, especially in the food delivery sector.
