Technology may be driving change, but unlocking its potential requires engaging people. That’s where Amee comes in. With a unique approach that focuses on humans first, she helps clients invent, design, build, and evolve digital products, experiences, and platforms that deliver tangible results. For example, Amee and team took a human centered design approach to research, re-design, test, and build the new Principal Mobile App for 401k participants nationwide. The old app was retired, and the new, lighter weight and human-needs focused app has been enjoying 4.8+ ratings since launching.
