1. Introduction

Guesty is a leading property management software provider that aims to simplify operations for property managers and owners. The company was looking to overhaul its mobile applications, Guesty Lite and Pro, to meet the evolving needs of its user base and stay ahead of the competition in the industry.

2. Challenge

The original Guesty Lite and Pro apps had a fragmented user interface and lacked screen consistency. This resulted in a confusing user experience and made it difficult for users to navigate the apps. Furthermore, the apps were not fully leveraging the capabilities of modern design tools, leading to inefficiencies in the design process.

3. Solution

As the Lead Product Designer, I spearheaded the redesign of the Guesty Lite and Pro apps. The project involved creating a new design system in Figma, a leading design tool known for its advanced features like variables. This design system served as the foundation for the app redesign, ensuring consistency across all screens and improving the overall user experience. The use of variables in Figma allowed for a more efficient design process. Changes could be made globally across the design system, saving time and reducing the likelihood of errors. The redesigned apps featured a more intuitive navigation structure and a cleaner, modern aesthetic aligned with Guesty’s brand identity.

Summary

The redesign of the Guesty Lite and Pro apps was a resounding success. Post-launch, the apps saw a significant increase in user engagement, with a 30% increase in daily active users and a 25% decrease in user-reported issues. The implementation of the Figma design system also streamlined the design process, reducing the time spent on design updates by 40%. This project showcased the power of a user-centric design approach and the benefits of implementing an advanced design system.
