Arpana worked on my product for about two years, which was quite a difficult one to understand to start with. She made a very serious effort to understand the industry, the idea and the vision and very capably took it to fruition. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to work with her.
Arpana was part of the STEP Solutions team at Talentica. She did a great job of developing the web-based SaaS application. When the team was looking for someone to be more UI/UX focused she stepped up to the challenge and took upon herself to learn some of the concepts. I am glad to see her further develop her skills in this area and get the HFI - CUA certification. I would love to work with Arpana again and I think she would a great resource on any software development team.
I had the chance to work with Arpana for a client project for two years. It was a project built from ground up and she was primarily responsible to understand client's vision, convert them into understandable mind-maps and then provide artefacts that helps the development team. Her biggest strength during this phase was her confidence and the clarity in her communication. She is easily approachable, a good listener and a problem solver. She will fit right into any team and can handle all responsibilities independently. She is highly motivated and has passion for UI/UX part of the project. Client had high praises for her and always looked up to her for ideas.
I worked with Arpana for over 3 years. She is an analytical person who uses her superior communication skills to generate concepts and gather feedback. On one of the projects, she single-handedly migrated entire legacy screens(about 20 screens) to user-centric screens by conducting user research, creating personas, developing wireframes and prototypes around customer needs. She is a creative person, and she always finds ways to solve complex UX problems. She is a go-getter and sets high standards. I enjoyed working with her and she will a valuable asset in any company/team.
