Online Wireframes – a new Cloud service for Dashboard prototyping

Whether you build dashboards using OBIEE, Cognos or SAP Business Objects, it is always a pain to build quick dashboard prototypes to demonstrate users and build project momentum.

Project Momentum is very important in predicting the outcome of your new project proposal.

  • How soon can you show your new client
  • What can you demonstrate
  • What is your process
  • How unique and innovative are you

Before the client approaches you for a quote and a POC they have definitely done some internal research and probably installed the basic setup. So why waste time in demonstrating the same packaged OBIEE stuff which your client has already done it by visiting various blogs and updates on the web.

What is so unique that you can demonstrate?

  • Build some innovative dashboard design patterns

This is something that will catch your client’s attention among heaps of other consultant companies.

But producing them is time consuming with the toolset itself.

So why not just build some cool wireframes and prototypes and send your unique approach to your potential client?

This is so easy. Just login to https://www.wireframes.org and build your dashboard prototype, add some cool visualization, comments and demonstrate how different your dashboard can be.

For e.g OBIEE is fully web based and using jquery and various plugins it is possible to completely blow the minds of everyone when you demonstrate something so cool done in OBIEE which no one has ever dared to do it till now.

Personal Wireframe application that runs in the browser

Personal Wireframe application that runs in the browser

?MockupTiger Personal Edition? is an excellent way of doing wireframes in the browser without the heavy baggage of server or database.

Our Enterprise edition comes with complete user management system and uses MySQL database to maintain all the information. It also needs a webserver to operate.

MockupTiger Personal Edition is an extremely innovative way of delivering the same experience without the need of a webserver and a database system.

How is that possible?

Here is what we did

  • Modern browsers such as Chrome come with their own database system and one such system is called as “localstorage
  • We singled out all the needed database objects that are needed to create projects and mockups
  • We redesigned the system using only localstorage
  • We kept the User Interface as it is.
  • So now the entire MockupTiger application is bundled into a single HTML file. No need of a webserver or database system.

What are the benefits?

  • Tiny footprint
  • Just visit the URL and keep using it.
  • Disconnected from internet? No problem. The application does not need it anymore. It is all within your browser.
  • Every mockup or wireframe that you can build using Enterprise Edition is possible in the personal Edition
  • Export to JSON and PNG
  • Just onetime payment

Wireframe software – new update Groups, full screen presentation

Wireframe software – new update Groups, full screen presentation

Enterprise Class Group and project management features are now available with a single click to the Dashboard.

Download MockupTiger Wireframes. It is the best time saving application you will download for prototyping

Mockuptiger allows you to create any number of groups. Each member of your team can create their own groups. Groups is like the “Circles” feature in Google plus.
Groups can represent full company, it can represent individual small teams, it can represent individual clients of a web design agency or a small department of a big company
. It is a simple and very powerful concept. This power is available when you use Mockuptiger to build your wireframes and prototypes.

Groups is a very powerful and simple concept. If you are a web agency then every client and members working for them is part of a small group. ?ClientA group? and ?ClientB group?.

If you are a big organization then each small team can be a group ?Web design group?, ?Software Development Group? and so on.

A group is like an umbrella, you can add users to the group and users can share their projects to the group. So now every member of the group can see all the projects in the group. Project access is tightly controlled through the dashboard.

Each user can create groups
Each user can add members to its own groups
Each user in the group can share their own projects to the group
Each user who shares their project can control the Editor and viewership of their own content
Every user in the group can atleast view each and every project in the group
Not every user can edit the projects and pages in the group

You can now share your documents to public by simply providing the link.
Clickable wireframes allows for unique presentation ways of mockups to your clients

http://www.mockuptiger.com/wireframe/mockups/mt.php?pa=dashboard_sample_4e5bbfcf3d57f

See, how easy it is!

But wait, sharing the URL does not mean you lose control over it. You need to make the document public through the dashboard. And yes, once public you can always revoke the public access.
