Easy for end-users to experience the workflow and processes (i.e. low entry barrier) and handle the tool. Easy for facilitators to create a digital board and to animate and create a good remote real-time or asynchronous experience. Moreover, it allows building Customer Journey Maps (CJM) for my end-users with very low time invested and a high level of reusability.

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.
Read full review Pros There are many templates available in the library: very useful for organizing a workshop that always requires a method to support collective intelligence. Klaxoon is great for working collaboratively at the same time. It is really visual and not very difficult to use. It has different kinds of interesting features, but you have to know about them. Blackboard principle, confidentiality of contributions Read full review 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! Read full review Cons From a user perspective I would say klaxoon offers all the good stuff. A few functions could be more developed like survey. I personally had troubled organizing some of the boards to have the data from them exported in a nice way. Hard to find more negative sides, but more templates for more use cases would always be nice :-) Read full review 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 Read full review Likelihood to Renew

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.

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.

we are trying many visual collaboration applications. and we will choose the application that will offer us a more interactive environment.
is a very similar app and surpasses Klaxoon in terms of interface and simplicity. But Klaxoon is more successful with pre-designed boards.
is a different concept and lags behind Klaxoon in terms of workspace.

Zeplin is great to inspect and share user interfaces, specifications and assets, perfect for developers. Tools like
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.
Read full review Return on Investment Klaxoon allows working in a group easily at the same time for people in different places. So the main benefit is to work collaboratively and to come back to the work anytime we want. It was especially important during the Covid period when we could not organize on-site sessions with a real post-it. It helps also for online training or digital adoption thanks to the possibility to define the digital training journey with Module/Quiz sessions/Surveys. we benefited from strong support from the Customer management services of Klaxoon to kick off the solution in a very good way. Read full review 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. Read full review ScreenShots
