Cacoo

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.

Cons

Cacoo

  • Keyboard only functionality is just ok. There are some shortcuts but momentum can be killed if I have to constantly go back to a mouse
  • Import/export support for Visio
  • Import/export support for Omnigraffle and Sketch

Whimsical

  • It can be a little frustrating trying to line things up exactly right but that's probably more user error than anything

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

Cacoo

We have found the free version to be more user-friendly and easier to train on than others. The full version is preferred by many of our creative team and designers as they have familiarity. It has more options and looks "prettier' and more professional when shared with a client.

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

Cacoo

  • I was able to easily collaborate on flow charts with Windows and Mac users.
  • I was able to co-author flowcharts in real-time during a conference call.
  • I was able to send a share link to the interactive chart as well as to an image without having to copy/save it some other cloud storage system.

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.
