Axure Software Solutions

Axure is a robust tool for teams who seek a reliable, proven, and powerful prototyping tool (and have the budget for it!). Because it has been around for a longer time than some similar products, it includes a ton of features to make incredibly realistic and interactive prototypes. Teams who use Axure will likely benefit from how the tool enables users to create master designs that designers can share and reuse, saving time that may otherwise have been spent building a design from the ground up. However, this tool can be very difficult for new users to learn, so it’s not a great solution for teams who don’t have a lot of wiggle room between adopting the tool and using it to create designs on a deadline. Also, the tool is less intuitive than some of its other competitors, which can make it more time-consuming to whip up a design. For teams who often need to iterate on prototypes quickly, Axure is likely not to be the most efficient solution.

I love Origami and have always recommended the software to other designers. I use Origami on a daily basis, especially when working on new packaging designs. It's nice to see how a box/package looks live while working on moving elements around in the artwork along with making sure dielines work properly and there won't be much work needed on the vendor's end to adjust dielines.

Cons

Axure Software Solutions

  • Sharing and versioning of the prototypes when working with multiple designers. It uses Subversion to checkout pages and components while they are being worked on, but issues and errors occur frequently.
  • The functions that allow interactions can be basic and cumbersome so when it comes to complex animations or transitions, Axure could really use improvements. . Collision can happen with interactions causing unintended results. Workarounds have to be made to create a complex interaction to describe how the interaction should function.
  • Too many interactions or a large prototype can cause slow performance. So its better to keep the prototype small. However, a larger project would need a different solution or approach to manage features. Can be difficult when aiming for consistency within the interactive wire.

  • It can be glitchy at times
  • Challenging dielines can sometimes be difficult to render in Origami unless you trick it
  • Large files with a lot of elements can slow down the software

      Usability

      Axure Software Solutions

      Axure feels like a tool that started with a simple interface that wasn't redesigned over time. Simple tasks sometimes require clicking through multiple layers. Crucial pieces of functionality are hidden under text links, or just flatly aren't discoverable. Much of the quirks of the interface only come from having screwed up numerous times, and knowing that certain things are just difficult to accomplish.

      Axure Software Solutions

      I've never used the support for Axure but they do have an online community that can be helpful when you're unsure how to accomplish a specific bit of interactivity. Overall the community for Axure is a great benefit for the software. There are also a lot of shared library assets which can help reduce the time you spend on projects.

      Alternatives Considered

      Axure Software Solutions

      Axure is more full features than most of its competitors. We needed the interactivity that Axure provides and that others were lacking in. We also had some individuals on the team that were familiar with Axure from their prior experience and we wanted to take advantage of that knowledge to quickly roll it out.

      Origami is a faster/easier way to view and render 3D views of packaging files--especially the instant gratification when adjusting artwork and or dielines before rendering out to other softwares. Other than Blender being free, this software is much easier to use for unexperienced users. Someone can learn Origami in matter of minutes--that's how easy it is.

      Return on Investment

      Axure Software Solutions

      • Putting designs to paper makes it easier for those on the business side to evaluate the cost of the project beyond just looking at written requirements.
      • Axure licenses are very expensive and may not be well suited for small businesses or individuals.
      • Axure licenses are permanent rather than being subscription based which saves money in the long run.
