Overall Satisfaction with Zeplin

We use Zeplin between two departments ( content and tech ). For the tech team to show off their best work, we need to know what the desired results are to be displayed. With Zeplin, the tech team can collaborate with the content team via notes directly on the mock-up. This is ideal for questions and answers that will not get lost in the shuffle, but rather are pinned directly where the question stems from ( point on the design ). This allows for very minimal miscommunication.
  • Allows note to be dropped and pinned directly on the design where the question stems from
  • Removes questions about exact styles with the CSS box
  • Loads extremely fast with the Windows App on a PC
  • Encourages collaboration between team members and departments
  • In the UI, the menu is a bit misleading by not showing all the pages available within a single project
  • Offline notifications are missing ( a must when the app is closed )
  • Because Time is Money: Zeplin takes the time to 'guess' what the marketing team wants, out of the equation, causing greater efficiency within the Tech Department
Zeplin is not a fully functional prototyping software system, but having the ability to add notes to help explain what actions are expected allows me to rate it high.
Zeplin has been extremely well timed with updates and support tickets being answered. I have waited no longer than 3 hours in the worst case scenario. Plus, out of the years of use, I have only needed to contact support once!
Zeplin has and easier on the eyes UI, not a cumbersome constructors of projects and easier collaboration.
Zeplin is well suited for web developers to understand what the marketing team is desiring. For me, Zeplin is the desired resulting display from the code that I am writing. Zeplin takes the guessing of styles, guessing of size scale, out of the equation. Zeplin would be less appropriate to use if I were a beginner web developer, as it does not include any actual code ( other than styles ) in the project.
