Overall Satisfaction with InVision

Our creative team is using InVision as a prototyping tool to demonstrate website design concepts and layout to clients for web development projects. We can simulate some of the interactivity with the designs, as well as easily share the create with clients over a link. It is also helpful to capture important notes from the design/UX team for the development team. Prior to InVision, we shared PDFs with clients which were flat, and didn't always load properly. InVision is helping us better showcase our conceptual designs and give clients a feel for what to expect with their new website.
  • Showcase web design page layouts in an efficient way.
  • Simulate hover states, click states, drop down menus, and other interactive elements.
  • Easily capture design feedback from clients.
  • I wish it had even more ability to simulate interactivity. What is there is nice, but still doesn't faithfully prototype the website.
  • It can be a bit cumbersome to set up connected pages and interactive states.
  • Pushy sales team that is always trying to get you to upgrade your plan even when you don't want/need to.
  • It has help us better showcase web designs to clients.
  • It has helped us better capture design feedback from clients.
  • It has helped our design team better collaborate with the development team.
Truthfully, while we have looked at others, InVision has the name recognition in the web design community and a tight integration with Sketch which is what was important to us. We have not seriously considered others, but may in the future as our needs change. This is our first prototyping tool, so we wanted to go with an industry leader.
If you need a helpful way to share web designs with clients, as well as internal stakeholders and are looking to capture feedback, InVision is a great tool for that. It also has more advanced features to go deeper with animations as well. The platform can definitely scale as your needs change and you don't have to use all of the features to get your value from the expense.
