UX Design tool - your opinion needed dead or alive.

Hello fellow Designers!
I'm Marcin. I usually called myself UX Designer and for some time recently - UX Manager. Currently I'm 100% focused on my own company, which you might know - UXPin (http://uxpin.com).
We've started with paper prototyping notepads (these with user interface elements on sticky notes), than we've created wireframing app able to recognize and convert paper prototypes into html wireframes and than... well it was just crazy. We've got funded, travelled to USA to meet with our design heroes and came back with mission of creating The User Experience Design Tool.
Thanks to tons of in-depth interviews we came with the idea of tool that will be focused on three levels:
Process (ability to demonstrate the design process)
Iterations (iterative approach towards design; version control)
Collaboration (within the team and outside of the team - in communication with client).
You can see result by signing up on our website (http://uxpin.com). There's 14 day free trial, but I will be glad to extand it for you, just to hear your honest opinion.
Wrap up: We really need your opinion. Though we're designers just as you do, we're emotionally attached to the tool. You know the story. We're running series of classic usability test, but I'd like to know what you think about the idea and execution in general terms.
