    Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

    Zeplin

    Zeplin is, overall, really great for what it’s known for: design handoffs to development teams. Thus, it’s an excellent tool for scenarios in which the design and development teams do not work very closely. Because it allows users to use the tool on various platforms, it’s also great for teams in which there are in-house and remote (or contract) staff working on a single project. The tool is pretty lightweight once users are on-boarded, so it’s also great for larger teams. However, it can take significant time to onboard people to it, so it might not be great for more rushed projects. It also doesn’t have a ton of functionality beyond supporting design handoffs, so one might choose a more inclusive tool, such as Figma, to support more steps in the design process. Finally, Zeplin is costly and its rates are pretty inflexible, so this might not be the most ideal tool for more cash-strapped teams who want to use Zeplin for more than one project at a time.

    Pros

    Creately

    • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
    • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
    • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
    • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

    Zeplin

    • Provides dimensions across iOS, Android and Web which saves developers from a lot of guess and check when implementing designs
    • Allows for easy download of digital design assets for developers to easily organize and implement
    • Great user experience in terms of the product itself and a great value for your money
    • Automatically generates CSS for web designs which is AMAZING!

    Cons

    Creately

    • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
    • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.

    Zeplin

    • It would be better if it has a dedicated web application
    • It's not the easiest tool to learn and start working with
    • It would be awesome if it had more features turning it into an all-around tool for mockups and prototypes

    Zeplin is not a fully functional prototyping software system, but having the ability to add notes to help explain what actions are expected allows me to rate it high.

    I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

    Zeplin has classic support with a chat from the website. It's working fine, and we're also getting the support needed when needed. However, Zeplin is very good at closing the incidents and moving on. It was a while ago we had a case with their support so that it might have improved since then.

    Alternatives Considered

    Creately

    In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.
    Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zeplin

    Zeplin is great to inspect and share user interfaces, specifications and assets, perfect for developers. Tools like InVision and Marvel are much better to create prototypes for both developers, coworkers and even stakeholders, but they don't have this kind of feature (inspection) as Zeplin does.So each of them can be used for different purposes, offering different approaches to share and interact with layouts for apps and websites.

    Return on Investment

    Creately

    • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
    • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
    Richard Crane | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zeplin

    • Development time has reduced as the design updates are communicated in real time to developers and they don't have to write the boilerplate code as it's already generated.
    • Employee engagement has improved as every stakeholder is aware about the design changes from the beginning and can give their inputs.
    • Designers save a lot of time as they don't to explicitly communicate when the update or publish their designs and also it just takes a couple of clicks to publish their designs. Also, lot of rework is saved as every stakeholder is involved right from the beginning.
