Overall Satisfaction with Whimsical

Whimsical is used by the Product, Product Design, and Brand Marketing departments. It used used for live whiteboard collaboration, mind mapping user journeys, wire framing, and other collaborative—early stage—projects. It’s has replaced our reliance on similar tools like Balsamic, InVision’s Freehand, draw.io, and other such tools by offering the same abilities. Not only are these tools in one application, but they are available concurrently allowing for free form collaboration and more complete and complicated projects.
  • White-boarding.
  • Mind mapping.
  • Journey mapping.
  • Retros.
  • Technical mapping.
  • User flows.
  • Wire framing.
  • Ideation sessions.
  • Export.
  • Sharing with stakeholders.
  • Temporary collaboration permissions.
  • Identifying points of risk.
  • Departmental communication.
  • Time to kickoff.
Whimsical nails early stage project exploration. Whether it’s mapping, wire-framing, or simply whiteboard collaboration, Whimsical provide a flexible toolset that puts you and your team in the correct mindset to explore ideas without feeling committed to a specific direction. Giant projects do not have much impact on performance and copy/paste in between projects works without issue.

Yes

Would you buy Whimsical again?

Yes

Whimsical excels in early stage projects when details are not defined and exploration needs to be encouraged. It may not be the right tool for final output as the fidelity is basic and the ability to output artifacts is limited. Ideally it is used to refine and scope ideas allowing for another more refined tool to take over.
