"Maybe you can re-frame your usability improvements as features?"

I think is a perfectly good idea. Users will appreciate a more usable
experience, and I think improved usability could be positioned as a
feature. To certain managers, that's what they need to hear -
features!!

"Maybe you can re-frame your usability improvements as features?" I like
that. Maybe I'll refactor my car as one twisty knob you turn to control
everything and call it a radio---a dangerous 4-wheel radio---not a car!

But seriously, the results are encouraging, confirming that many
companies can focus on usability. That's all I was curious about.
Thanks, www.jackbellis.com

Convincing customers to *buy* the new release may be a challenge.
Especially since the people buying the product aren't always the people
using it, the sell will have to be on how much time/money the changes
will save. In some markets, as discussed before, a feature list is what
sells the upgrade. Maybe you can re-frame your usability improvements as
features?
