I have to agree with Mr. Hays. The team that designs our software
(customer support/service management) is designed by a team that consists
of a seasoned service professional (who understands the business need for
the software), an ergonomics specialist (who understands how screen
layout and colors affect the work flow and user attitude), and several
analysts (who understand the nuts and bolts of the software).
