Easy for end-users to experience the workflow and processes (i.e. low entry barrier) and handle the tool. Easy for facilitators to create a digital board and to animate and create a good remote real-time or asynchronous experience. Moreover, it allows building Customer Journey Maps (CJM) for my end-users with very low time invested and a high level of reusability.

  • Collaboration between team members

Klaxoon
  • There are many templates available in the library: very useful for organizing a workshop that always requires a method to support collective intelligence.
  • Klaxoon is great for working collaboratively at the same time. It is really visual and not very difficult to use. It has different kinds of interesting features, but you have to know about them.
  • Blackboard principle, confidentiality of contributions

  • From a user perspective I would say klaxoon offers all the good stuff. A few functions could be more developed like survey.
  • I personally had troubled organizing some of the boards to have the data from them exported in a nice way.
  • Hard to find more negative sides, but more templates for more use cases would always be nice :-)

Usability
Abstract
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating
Abstract
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

we are trying many visual collaboration applications. and we will choose the application that will offer us a more interactive environment. Miro is a very similar app and surpasses Klaxoon in terms of interface and simplicity. But Klaxoon is more successful with pre-designed boards. MURAL is a different concept and lags behind Klaxoon in terms of workspace.

  • Single source of truth for the team.
  • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.

Klaxoon
  • Klaxoon allows working in a group easily at the same time for people in different places. So the main benefit is to work collaboratively and to come back to the work anytime we want.
  • It was especially important during the Covid period when we could not organize on-site sessions with a real post-it. It helps also for online training or digital adoption thanks to the possibility to define the digital training journey with Module/Quiz sessions/Surveys.
  • we benefited from strong support from the Customer management services of Klaxoon to kick off the solution in a very good way.
