Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Easy to work on."
"Lucidchart is a lovely tool for creating visual representations of any process or organization."
"Lucidchart's capabilities for visualizing and understanding process flows or workflows is excellent. The way that you put together the parts of charts and edit the chart are all very intuitive and easy to use."
"Using the Component Diagram, Visual Paradigm helps with design and control, reusing components."
"I like the fact that this solution is complete."
"The solution is stable. It hasn't crashed, stopped or caused any issues in any way."
"The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working."
"The pricing model is attractive."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"It is easy-to-use and it helps understand its data modeling structure through the intuitive user interface."
"I don't know if I will be able to add some animations if I want to. I believe the problem may be the program's process flows but if I want to transfer it into a PPP or any other document, I can only do image transfer."
"When you want to add text to a connector arrow, I have not figured out how to position the text vertically. It always wants the text to stay horizontal."
"Sometimes, I have created charts with a lot of layers, which locks down parts of the chart and hides parts of the chart to edit it. If they have a better way to deal with specific layers when it gets complex, then that would be helpful. I would like to see something like an illustrator program, where they have a pallet of these layers that I want and don't want as well as being able to see each layer individually. That is the one thing that could be helpful."
"I would like to see the ability to easily export to groupware, such as Atlassian Confluence."
"I would like to see something for visualizing innovation work maps."
"The solution is not user-friendly. It uses a lot of memory and CPU. You have to have a good computer to use it."
"The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future."
"There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server."
"The solution can be heavy on resource usage."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing comes in at about $100 for a year's subscription, which is very reasonable if this is a tool that you will use more than once."
"The pricing and licensing are fine, though I wish they didn't require you to buy the licenses in batches of five."
"Over the years I've seen an increase in price, and it makes it difficult for a single person company, like me, to decide whether to extend the license."
"You can use Paradigm on a subscription basis and you can choose from different tiers of subscription."
"You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
