ProtoShare Makes You More Efficient.
The Top 6 Reasons Projects are Challenged and How ProtoShare Fixes Them
According to IEEE, a group of managers and employees cited a wide range of issues when asked why their projects didn't meet their original goals. The six most-named reasons were:
Problem: Lack of user involvement
Solution: Increase buy-in by inviting stakeholders to the process early
ProtoShare creates a simple user experience where executives, end users, UX professionals, designers and developers can actively engage with interactive prototypes.
Problem: Poor requirements
Solution: Ensure requirements are complete & correct
Visualization radically improves requirements. By adding interactive prototypes and visualizations in ProtoShare, requirements are validated, new requirements are uncovered, and development can move forward with reduced ambiguity, and true agreement between key stakeholders.
Problem: Unrealistic schedules
Solution: Gain a clear scope of the project to better estimate deployment
Estimating development time is difficult. When requirements are illustrated with high-fidelity prototypes, engineering estimates are more accurate. Whether you're packaging a sprint, or scheduling large work units, ProtoShare will help you schedule the work more accurately.
Problem: Lack of change management
Solution: Prevent scope creep & late-stage changes by prototyping
Because ProtoShare allows for rapid, multiple, and even parallel iterations, your team can be more innovative and creative before coding begins. ProtoShare helps teams uncover big changes early in the prototyping phase, practically eliminating late-stage rework.
Problem: Lack of testing
Solution: Test requirements prior to development
ProtoShare massively reduces rework by allowing baseline user-experience testing upfront. By allowing stakeholders to test a prototype, you can eliminate misunderstanding of incorrect or incomplete requirements that typically result in rework that can be complex, time consuming, and costly.
Problem: Inflexible, bloated processes
Solution: Work in iterative sprints to streamline your process
ProtoShare gives your team a lightweight, flexible and streamlined process to uncover more complete project requirements before any code is written. A more Agile, iterative design process allows your team to explore more creative ideas to build optimal solutions. Rapid prototype refinement gets your team real stakeholder buy-in without the headaches and cost of reworking a final product.

Product Manager, Total Attorneys “We're in the midst of the development phase of a new web site launch in which we used Protoshare extensively for planning, UI testing and front-end design review, and we continue to get great feedback from both our clients and our developers (internal and contracted) about how well put-together our wireframes are. You and your team play are a big part of that.” Derek Oyen
Senior UI Designer, Marcus Thomas LLC “I absolutely love ProtoShare's features that allow me to annotate and comment on a design. I can export a design specification with annotations quickly without having to think about it. I can't begin to describe the pain of annotating in Axure, so we end up pulling designs out to annotate in another tool. I also really love ProtoShare's workflow capabilities for sharing work in progress - because the tool documents feedback and alerts me to new notifications, I can rapidly respond to stakeholders and keep them happy. Axure only allows me to publish, but provides no workflow.” Wanda Glover
