First of all, why wireframe?

A wireframe is the quickest way to validate your product ideas! It serves as the foundational blueprint for a digital product or website. It’s a framework for further development, that shows the structure, layout, and functions before design or coding starts.

A wireframing tool is made to help expedite this process.

Once you’ve got your initial wireframes down, it’s time to move ahead.

Validate the ideas with stakeholders, fellow products, and even potential users. See how your wireframes stack up against usability rules and design best practices, and receive real-time feedback right on your designs by sharing access with team members.

You can also quickly create basic prototype flows (interactive wireframes) to gather user feedback and validate the functionality. You can then simulate the user experience more accurately, giving stakeholders and users a better understanding of how the final product will function. Plus, it is an opportunity to iron out any kinks in the design before moving forward.

05.Finalize and hand-off
