    “We started working Freehand during middle of Covid-19 pandemic, but we are still using this in hybrid model in our company. We tested two major competitors as well (M*), but simplicity and feature selection were the best with Freehand.”

6 reasons why customers tell us they prefer InVision Freehand over Mural

1. All the critical features, half the cost

With budgets tightening, a flexible pricing model that suits your needs is only the beginning. InVision has all of the features your teams use the most, at a price-per-seat that’s half the cost of Mural.

2. No learning curve required

Cross-team collaboration shouldn’t mean crossed wires. Simplicity is at the heart of what we do, and teams tell us with InVision Freehand it is easier to get started because there aren’t as many confusing ribbons, banners and toolbars as Mural.

3. Half-baked integrations

With Mural, many integrations rely on Zapier as a connector while others are read-only on the canvas. With InVision Freehand all of our integrations are direct connections and many can be interacted with, passing data back-and-forth with the integrated app.

4. Switching is easy

With Freehand’s Whiteboard Importer you can bring your Mural whiteboards directly into Freehand. Whether self-serve or with a little help from our team, you can keep all your work while cutting cost.

5. Central hub for projects

Bring people, tools and work together in one place to give context to and create a single source of truth for all projects. With Mural, you can organize content into rooms and folders, but that doesn’t include 3rd party content like you can with Freehand and isn’t available on all plan types.

6. Design to Engineering workflow, in one spot

Embed InVision and Figma prototypes as well as Sketch, Adobe XD and Figma screens, all right on the same canvas for reviews, feedback, presentations and hand-off. Mural does not offer integrations with Adobe XD, Sketch, or Figma, and flat designs pasted on to the canvas are not inspectable.
