  • The learning curve was quite a bit more than what we had expected. It was a challenge to keep up with learning the product. We thought we may be better served with a simpler software choice.
  • The community support and resources alleviated a few initial pain points, but I feel that time may have been saved if the app was a little more polished on the user side.
  • We needed to move fast on deliverables and eventually moved onto another product. Our projects could simply be done faster elsewhere. Not a fault of Axure; I think our goals were obtainable with lighter apps such as XD or Sketch.

  • Faster Prototype Turnaround for Customers - Researchers can show prototypes to our customers mere days after receiving initial design input from customers
  • Avoid building the "wrong" thing - Axure helps development teams zero in on our customers exact needs by putting prototypes in front of them, receiving real-time feedback as to whether the right workflow is represented or not.
  • Cost - I mentioned earlier that Axure has a substantial cost. As my UI team continues to grow, it becomes harder to justify having licenses of Axure for everyone, and I tend to favor having a couple Axure specialists instead, eliminating additional licensing needs.

  • Master styles help save time and create brand consistency in creating prototypes, as designers can choose from existing styles, which they can build their designs upon.
  • Axure’s functionality allows us to build highly realistic prototypes, which enables us to easily portray user workflows for potential and existing clients, as well as for stakeholders, to create more buy-in for the end product.
  • The source files aren’t a reliable resource for application code for our developers, so we have to spend significant time on documentation to ensure that the design doesn’t get built out incorrectly.

  • When understanding the minimal needs to describe multiple dimensions of UX using this tool, a designer can very quickly create a prototype using this tool and can help reduce the time needed to assess very usability requirements and business validity for an application.
  • The generated files source code absolutely cannot be used in the application code. Measures should be taken to ensure the code is not used in the application code or else you risk rework in development/implementation.

  • Axure allows for us to quickly get the entire sales team trained on a specific narrative and gives them a fool proof click path for them to use in the demo.
  • Axure is relatively inexpensive and allows for purchasing the software without having to pay a monthly subscription (although they do have that option).
  • The Sketch integration has allowed for a 10 fold increase in productivity by taking designs already created in another program and quickly adding them to Axure.

  • Clients love the rapid visualizations of their requirements.
  • Developers love the detailed interactive prototype of what needs to be built.
  • End users love the end result because the wireframes allowed them to provide actionable feedback.

  • Putting designs to paper makes it easier for those on the business side to evaluate the cost of the project beyond just looking at written requirements.
  • Axure licenses are very expensive and may not be well suited for small businesses or individuals.
  • Axure licenses are permanent rather than being subscription based which saves money in the long run.

  • So much time is saved by building functional prototypes using axure. Everyone is in sync and aligned on exactly how the product functions instead of guessing from still/static wire frames.
  • The overall process to build in interactions needs to be simplified so that time isn't wasted in UX. This can be a negative impact on the project timeline because so much time is wasted in creating functional wire frames.
  • A shareable link for a prototype is a great way to share with clients so they can click through the product and follow along during a presentation. This saves time by not having to add annotations to every element and have the client read through all of those notes.

  • We have saved a lot of time and money by testing out ideas with real users prior to committing and developing the real product. We are able to find weak points and room for improvements with our product concepts up front. By catching these ahead of time, we are able to cut our development lifecycle and build better products.

  • It makes communicating with developers a lot easier and requires a lot less spec documentation.
  • It makes communicating with stakeholders a lot easier because they don't need to imagine what a product will look like, they can see and play with it immediately.
  • It makes user testing very easy - testers can play with nearly real versions of your product without development effort.

  • Axure isn't necessarily an ROI tool. It can greatly cutdown on the amount of back and forth communication with a team by clarifying ideas quickly and early. It can also help with user testing, as it's broadly available from a web browser.
  • Due to its potential for a long learning curve, it may take a while to get a team up and running in an Axure based workflow.
