Blue Sky followed user-centric design principle and used data-driven approach to ideate and prioritze actions. For example, we spoke with staff members working at KPMG China to understand user needs on a personal level and to design solutions that are both desirable and viable to implement.

USER-CENTRIC & Data-Driven SERVICES

The real-time analytics notify and recommend actions for our users incorporating their ongoing feedback. We have also set-up an eco-themed area and launch a starter kit to drive organization-wide behavioral change. The starter kit provides people with reminders that are visible and concise so they gain understanding and receive validation of the impacts of their behaviors. The data is also used to identify and prioritize actions so the organization can optimize energy consumption systematically.
