If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Lucidchart, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Don't. It's just MicrosoftDraw on serious.
I will definitely recommend this solution to others. It's a really good tool for any business that designs business workflows. It is very easy to simply pay and then start using it right away. Anybody who knows how to create a workflow will find it very easy to work on Lucidchart. They can just log on and start creating. It's very easy. On a scale from one to ten, I rate this program a nine. One thing that needs to improve, is the feature that is used to import or export data. Perhaps they can add more templates for users.
Compare Lucid to the other providers in the space, whether it be Gliffy, drawio, or Visio and understand how they export and share work with other team members, and which is easiest to use.
I love the program as it is so far. Being able to link comments and things to images has been fantastic for me. For me, using it as a solution for whiteboard, canvas-type, thought-thinking, mind mapping has been fantastic. I would rate this solution as an eight (out of 10). Feature and functionality-wise, it is fantastic. I just wish visually that I had a bit more control to polish it up.
We are a consulting company that works with CEOs. In many cases, we are recommending products. In a lot of situations, Lucidchart could be a useful tool for organizations that we work with, and we would definitely recommend it to them. However, for it to become a really useful tool organizationally, you must have somebody walk you through a process of how you would embed it. I don't think that they have that. Most people are visual first and prefer that as a way to communicate. In the future, if there is an opportunity to do so, we would potentially increase usage. We have to learn more about how we would utilize the tool, but we are not opposed to increasing usage. I would rate this product as a seven (out of 10).
As far as project planning, execution, project status reporting, and requirements analysis, if planning is a big part of it, Lucidchart is a must-use.
It does everything that we want it to do. I would give it a 10 (out of 10). I think it's great. It is not a huge deal for us that the suite can be centrally managed by a unified administration console, but it is nice. We use some of the integrations with Microsoft. They're somewhat important, but not a deal breaker. We wish they would incorporate them into Lucidspark. So, if I make a chart and want to put it into a presentation, then it is nice to be able to make a change to the chart and have it automatically update in a presentation without having to reimport it. We are also heavy users of Microsoft Teams, so it's nice that I can share charts within Teams. We don't really use it for new teams and hierarchy charts. We really haven't used Lucidchart's ability to compare versions of documents. We probably should because it happens. The client will ask for a change to the architecture and see what it was before. However, we have not utilized this feature a lot.
