Increasing Revenue Checklist

Use this checklist as a guide to determine if your organization can leverage design systems to increase your top line. If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you can benefit from using a design system.

  • Is design a bottleneck or limited resource for your organization?
  • Is your product or service dependent on fast-paced decision making?
  • Are potential features backlogged frequently?
  • Does prototyping new ideas take so long that it hinders innovation?
  • Does the quality of your current product experience hold you back from taking more market share?

Design systems can help increase revenue in many areas of your business. This is because design systems can provide you with simplified and accessible components to design and build new features faster for your customers.

Decreasing Cost Checklist

Use this checklist as a guide to determine if your organization can leverage design systems to decrease your costs and increase speed to market. If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you can benefit from implementing a design system.

  • Do you have team members creating assets redundantly?
  • Do team members, outside of design, constantly question the use of colors or components?
  • Does your product or service suffer from visual inconsistencies or too many variants?
  • Is your product or service dependent on designers handing off assets?
  • Is your product or service on multiple different platforms or devices?

Design systems will help you reduce costs within your organization by empowering designers to operate more autonomously, integrate better with developers, and work together more efficiently.
