Your free trial got me!

Pros

As a product manager I found myself often times just just needing to throw together a simple wireframe/mockup and it's harder than you think to just find something simple and straight forward to get that done. Cacoo allowed me to use the full product (with a couple of exceptions) right away and then naturally it's what I thought about the next time I needed to do something similar. Eventually I got to the end of my free pages and the cost made it possible to easily upgrade.

Cons

- Grouping images. There is no straight forward or easy way to group images and assets unless I am totally missing something. - Keep adding shapes- I think there is a really good start in shapes but you should keep adding shapes and working on the filtering system to get to those shapes.

Cacoo is the perfect software for many usage

Easy to learn and use, Cacoo let you make fast and great diagram for any usage. Nice to make mockup, especially with linked items that let you have a full interactive mock of your app. The software is also accurate enough to make some graphical mockup And as you can export them as PDF with link, you can even share them with everyone! The collaborative tools make this even easier and open Cacoo to a whole new set of usage. As its easy to use and share, you can have a very nice whiteboard to share with remote collaborator when brainstorming. And last but not least, the versioning system let you edit as far as you want any diagram without the fear of losing anything in the process :)

Pros

Easy to use. Powerfull. Got some great features.

Cons

There is really nothing I can really complain about on Cacoo. Expect the fact that the very old diagrams made with the very old flash engine are not upgradable to the current one. That's really all.

Reasons for Switching to Cacoo

Cacoo is just way more complete than the other software we was using, and let us having just one soft instead of many one. Also, in most of case, Cacoo was just way better than the other anyway :)

An amazing collaborative tool

Overall, Cacoo has been very good to me. Putting together unique flowcharts and diagrams featured quite heavily during our project conception phases. Cacoo is also extremely easy to use, and getting new team members to learn it competently took all of a few hours. It has been a very useful tool to have in our portfolio.

Pros

Cacoo allows me to share links with other team members to source ideas on collaborative projects. And they won't even have to log in to access the shared session, the link grants them direct access. And considering our teams are almost always on the go and sometimes have to work on borrowed equipment, it has been an extremely subtle but very practical solution to several incidents of delayed input from collaborators.

Cons

I had no major issues with the app except that I thought they could offer a lot more creative options for diagram features.

A simple to use and powerful tool

Cacoo provides a clear and easy way to produce diagrams describing complex technical solutions which are then understandable to less technical stake holders

Pros

Cacoo provides an incredibly easy to use platform for creating in depth analysis and design diagrams. The interface is intuitive mean no real requirement to train users to access features and be able to quickly produce business ready design artefacts.

Cons

Until Cacoo rolled out google SSO, logging into the product was tesious as it would bounce you from NuLab to Cacoo credentials. However now that is resolved I have little to complain about.

Reasons for Switching to Cacoo

Visio was expensive and overly complicated with little benefit for all the additional features
