Vetted Review

Multiple people at my company use this for software design mockups. We've used it to gain approval for the pages in a customer's portal, including how customers would be funneled and traverse them (depending upon their goals), and how processes would work through APIs we are developing. For this type of design, we previously used Visio.
  • Toolbar at the top makes sure everything is at your fingertips.
  • Options available are generous and suited to laying out processes.
  • Viewing wireframes easy to see process down the left side of the screen.
  • Adding notes easy for collaboration.
  • Some of the objects aren't very easy to edit.
  • Adding items to a list not intuitive.
  • Resizing columns isn't easy or sometimes possible.
Anytime you have a process to map out to show others we think it works well. It is easy for multiple people to get in, review, and add their thoughts. The look and feel is nice and even the marked-up version with notes looks presentable enough to show management to get approval/buy-in. We still use Visio for things like swim lanes.
  • ROI is neutral. We've used it enough to justify the price.
  • People like the interface, so we use it mainly on customer-facing projects.
  • We also have Visio, so if it doesn't work well in Balsamiq, we go over to Visio.
We think Balsamiq does a good job compared to Visio and we do go to Balsamiq first. We typically know after trying to put together the first wireframe if it will work well in Balsamiq. And we are familiar enough with both tools to get an idea. If it is not working right away in Balsamiq, we go over to Visio.
We haven't had to use the support feature yet.
