Particularly helpful to an organization that has Windows people who are staunch Visio users and Mac people who are die-hard OmniGraffle or Sketch users.
Marvel is a very strong tool in scenarios where designers seek to quickly create simple prototypes on their desktops using a simple, intuitive interface. It offers “just enough” functionality to create somewhat realistic designs to present to stakeholders and other designers. However, there’s a limit to how “realistic” those designs can be, given that Marvel has somewhat limited functionality around animations. Marvel is not a strong option for those who want to create very complex prototypes with many animations, or for those who want to edit prototypes on their tablet or phone. Marvel is a jewel for simplicity but starts to be difficult to use when creating complicated designs. For creating more complicated prototypes, I would recommend a more robust tool, such as Axure.
Creative resource for various visual support itemsThe free version is robust and nice to staff who have not used it before to get to know the productSupport has been helpful when needed
Easy to use with a fast learning curveThe handoff option allows developers to extract CSS code to copy design styles

I really miss being able to duplicate, make a copy of the prototype I'm working on. Sometimes, I want to make a comparison with detail changes and without being able to duplicate it is difficult.Compared to other similar services, I feel the animations could be more fluid and smoother.It could have more free sophisticated icons and images.
No setup fee
Cacoo is web-based and OS independent. OmniGraffle is a local install and mac only. Microsoft Visio is a desktop app also and Windows only. Two strikes for me, as I use between 2-4 different computers daily where I expect my applications to be always up-to-date and files synchronized.
Ultimately, InVision was just a better fit for our company's needs. It's probably faster to create prototypes using Marvel, but InVision's collaboration features (comments, notes, etc.) are much more robust, which was helpful for our large team spread across multiple continents. InVision also offers more advanced features, and Marvel felt a little too limited for our overall business needs.
Easier to diagram and create workflows without having to engage a designer's assistance. That means staff at lower billable hourly rates, reducing overall admin or billable hours cost.Less time involved in creating support documents for less robust product options. Again, reducing overall admin or billable hours cost.Most of our staff use the free version so no added cost until they are familiar and really embrace it = a reduction in upfront cost.
It helped me improve my productivity. It took me lot of time to manually design mockups earlier when I used Adobe Photoshop to do it.Because of quickly creating mockups, now I provide my clients with more than 4-5 options which is welcomed by clients and make them happy.Definitely the ROI and improved, because of time saved and happy clients.
