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.

Whimsical

For planning purposes, ideation process and content organization in general, Whimsical is an awesome tool in our workflow. It can be used by management teams as well by Creative and Development. Also, if you need to explain a more complex idea or process, it's perfect since you can use visual tools to describe it better. It's very easy to use and has a great set of tools even on the free plan.

    Whimsical

    Whimsical is overall very easy to learn and remember. One issue with the usability occurs when you attempt to move connected boxes around the workspace. Frequently connections break or do not add easily, causing further disconnects. You can manually fix these issues, but it's a oprobem that seems would have an easy fix

    I reached out to support, as I was interested in possibly investing in the organization, and they quickly and happily informed me they are a bootstrap organization and do not take on investors at this time. The swift response and information readily available for my consumption was extremely helpful and shows how solid the team behind it is.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nulab, Inc.

    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.

    Whimsical

    Whimsical nails early stage project exploration. Whether it’s mapping, wire-framing, or simply whiteboard collaboration, Whimsical provide a flexible toolset that puts you and your team in the correct mindset to explore ideas without feeling committed to a specific direction. Giant projects do not have much impact on performance and copy/paste in between projects works without issue.

    Return on Investment

    Nulab, Inc.

    • 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.

    Whimsical

    • We've been using free version, so it's a no brainer.
    • As it helps us focus on the information organization process, we don't lose time redoing work due to the lack of planning before doing design or code.
    • We can collaborate on the same project, so it's easier to get things done as we're working from home as well.
