Nexthink Awarded Patent Making Digital Employee Experience Easier to Manage Across Enterprise

New Screen Layout Manager Simplifies Creation of Flexible, Intuitive Dashboards for Enterprise End-User Computing Teams

BOSTON – June 20, 2018Nexthink®, a leader in digital employee experience management software for enterprises, today announced that it has been awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its screen layout manager. The patent recognizes Nexthink’s innovative approach of enabling IT departments to have a clear, easy-to-digest and flexible view of their organization’s IT ecosystem, allowing them to deliver an unprecedented end-user experience throughout the enterprise.

“Information dashboards are critical for providing data at a glance, and to be effective, they must communicate data in a clear and efficient way,” said Patrick Hertzog, co-founder and User Experience Officer of Nexthink. “Our newly patented technology provides IT departments with the ability to seamlessly create aesthetic dashboards that make the consumption of information easy and understandable.”

In most cases today, information dashboards are predefined by the application and restricted by layout managers that either do not offer the end user’s desired flexibility or are too complex to be used by non-experts. To better accommodate IT teams, Nexthink’s patented screen layout manager fulfills four main requirements that teams look for in a platform’s setup, and that are not found in any single solution available before:

  • Easiness to define: IT professionals require a layout manager that enables anyone to seamlessly and interactively build a dashboard. This includes placing all visual elements at their proper place on the screen to present the needed information in a format that is simple to digest.
  • Flexibility: Dashboards are often made up of visual elements that are different shapes and sizes. Users desire a flexible way to manage and display all information in a coherent way despite any discrepancies between different groups.
  • Predictability: Related visual elements are placed close together to form groups that must be maintained when modifications are made, such as when a dashboard is resized or an item is added or removed.
  • Visual coherence: An aesthetic dashboard uses the entirety of the available space in a balanced way with proper alignment, ensuring the layout is compact and easy to review.

The new screen layout manager further supports Nexthink’s goal of providing IT departments the tools needed to deliver optimal and scalable end-user experience management across the enterprise.
