Freehand Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with InVision Freehand

My teams use Invision Freehand to work together on product innovations. In an era when we're all joining meeting from different places, it's great that we can work together visually in a Freehand collaboration space. Speaking on conference calls where only one person can control the screen at any one time is simply not adequate. We use the various Freehand tools to set up a series of brainstorming activities to discuss consumer needs, formulate hypotheses, and align on potential solutions. Honestly, I think it's superior to meeting in-person with hundreds of sticky notes on a whiteboard. It's so easy to add notes, read each other's writing, and copy/paste content from the web to support your ideas. And the Freehand board gets to live intact for the duration of the project and beyond – versus a physical board that has to be disassembled if you share meeting space with others.
  • Varied tools and capabilities to add content
  • Intuitive interface
  • Preserve the entirety of your project's evolution
  • Gives more people the chance to participate in a project
  • Pasting images can sometimes be clunky
  • Users accidentally move content too easily
  • Easy to learn how to use
  • The large size of the board allows for easy expansion
  • Smooth interface with no lag
  • Too early to provide hard numbers
They're very similar – which is a good thing because there's less of a learning curve.

My teams love using Invision Freehand for problem-solving collaborations. It allows the organizers to pre-build a board for the team to visualize how the process will flow, and it graphically breaks the task into manageable segments. It adds a level of organization that sometimes seems missing (or less apparent) during in-person brainstorms. We've also used Freehand when creative agencies need to present early drafts of long documents or page-heavy websites. It can be much easier to assess the design when viewing all pages at once vs viewing a pdf one page at a time.
