Overall Satisfaction with Axure

It was used in our department.
The business clients (Line of business) ask our team to design a new "Excel" importation portal. I used Axure to simulate a 20-25 page wireframe.
They loved it and at some point they even thought the application was complete and i told them it was just a simulation.
If you get creative there is a lot more to be done with Axure!
In a few words we used it to create a solution for business clients
  • I used it to wireframe a whole Excel Importation Portal. Very easy to show the clients what you are imagining.
  • In axure you can paste a image and make it look like an icon then make it a button
  • I used it to demonstrate a new premium allocation module for insurance at WF
  • The fields were amazing to type into and make it look so real.
  • I used it to demostrate different types of reports and their filters (including sorting and column filters).
  • I created hover in the report - to show how to filter a column
  • I think the copying and pasting of images from external locations show be easier. just like paint..
  • There is an application call snip it (or snag it) - Axure should have that functionality so that i can take snipit from other screens and paste them into axure.
  • I want to able to export to a web format so people can view it without the need to have axure on their laptop
  • I am not a project manager so I dont have ROI on this one.. Sorry.
  • But the best ROI I had was 'time' - if i had a explain a new design to the clients using emails/words/powerpoints then it would take ages/months..
  • Wireframes cuts the time to half
Very similar - the only reason I chose Axure is because the company i was working for had the license for Axure and not iRise but they are very similar as i have used both
Well suited for:
Demonstrating a design that involves many pages.
Demonstrating a completely NEW design - it is hard for the LOB to imagine your vision of the design when you tell them in words. When you use Axure you can show it to them. I love it because it saves a lot of time explaining them
