Lucidchart is an essential visual productivity platform that helps anyone understand and share ideas, information, and processes with clarity. With this intuitive, cloud-based solution, anyone can learn to think visually and collaborate in real time while building flowcharts, mockups, UML diagrams, and more. Lucidchart is utilized in over 175 countries by more than 9 million users, including Comcast, NASA, Netflix, Target and Xerox. Since the Utah-based company’s founding in 2010, it has grown in revenue by nearly 100 percent each year and has received numerous awards for its business and workplace culture.
Lucidchart also releases updates to user accounts every month so the program continues to improve as you use it. We support Visio import and export, and you can export your diagram as a PDF or image. Lucidchart includes all the standard libraries that you would expect from a Visio alternative, including: flowcharts, swimlanes, ERD, wireframes, Venn diagrams, mind mapping and other specialized libraries. If you don't find the library that you are looking for, you can always create your own by importing .svg files into a new custom library.
Lucidchart is most often compared to Microsoft Visio. They are both enterprise-level diagramming products. As a Visio alternative SaaS offering, Lucidchart allows users to work on the same document at the same time as their colleagues in any modern browser.
With over 10 million downloads, Lucidchart is the most popular customer-facing app in the Google Apps marketplace. Lucidchart has grown in popularity as SaaS diagramming product because of its ability to support real-time collaboration and its interoperability on any operating system. This is of particular interest to Linux and Visio for Mac users because Visio doesn't have a great solution on non-PC operating systems. Lucidchart recognized early on that being compatible with Visio would be important. Because Lucidchart can import and export with Visio formatted extensions, Lucidchart is a great VIsio alternative. Lucidchart makes it easy to work with people in the office or on the other side of the globe.
