Based out of South Melbourne, Australia, Loop11 was created in July of 2008. The site was intended to provide online usability to testing for consultants, web designers, and web managers. Toby Biddle holds the position of Loop11 CEO. Today, the site provides many unique tools that still work to achieve the same goal: allowing users to test usability and gain insight into how the end user experiences their product. This information is valuable to help them improve what they already have or come up with additional tools to compliment existing ones.
The focus of Loop11 makes it stand out as a valuable tool to the right people. The site offers up multiple ways to test the experience of users. This is an extremely important task, one which can help turn a product into something much more user friendly.
