PERSONA: Darren, a buyer for the English department of a large university, needs to quickly purchase two of his standard configs. He also ends up adding a smart upsell. Darren gets in and out as quickly as possible.
Darren uses Premier daily to place and manage orders for hisorganization, and he signs in each morning.
P-BAR & DASHBAR
Based on a cookie, we know that Darren is a Premier customer, so the P-bar (personalization) located in the top right area of your browser displays special Premier branding, and the new 'Dashbar' appears at the bottom of the browser chrome.
Because the Quick Shop feature requires full authentication, Darren is asked to log in. He chooses to
authenticate using facial recognition.
I love adding in some near future technology like this since I do believe that your computer should know who you are, just like you know who your co-worker is... just by looking at them.
Today Darren has been asked to order some new systems from his department’s pre-built Premier account list. He clicks Standard Configs on the Premier Dashbar, then selects one of the bundles he needs.
The Dashbar Standard Configsmodule can be customized to show favorites, most frequently purchased, or product categories. Users can also opt to open a full Standard Configs page in lieu of the module.
