My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Lucidspark excelled in the areas of the pre-templates that was already created for consumers to utilize. If these pre-templates were not already available for me to edit then I would have been very lost on my dissertation assignment. I also love the fact that Lucidspark had various templates of flowcharts specific to the style or area of need the consumer works in.

Pros

Alma Suite

  • Great for task administration.
  • Customer service is friendly, pragmatic and always available.
  • Organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Lucidspark

  • It is very easy to get started. You can open a board and start putting stick notes on it right away. It's intuitive enough that anyone can dive in and use it.
  • It is very simple and unstructured. While Lucidchart was geared toward flowcharts (and I co-opted it to my own purposes), Lucidspark is open to whatever format you need. There are templates available which are helpful, but you can also free-form as much as you like.
  • It is easy to collaborate. You can share a board with colleagues, use it real-time to collaborate on a story map by putting sticky notes together from an entire team, or take notes together.

Cons

Alma Suite

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidspark

  • I find it difficult to use the cursor and to understand how I can grab and drag a few items together, how to expand, etc.
  • Too many shapes that you can chose from, it's good to have just a proper shape for a database, a bucket, and a couple of more shape which differ from one another. But I don't think that much more than that is needed, for my use simplicity is the best, and I find myself scrolling through all the options for too much time instead of focusing on the design which I want to create.

There is definitely a learning curve. The controls are counter to what you may expect or be used to. I am sure there are keyboard shortcuts, but I don't feel confident with them and sometimes the linking can be finicky. If you are a perfectionist, you can easily spend way too much time trying to make everything line up perfectly, since its not the most natural inclination of the software.

We received an initial training from Lucid which was great, very informative and applicable to our own use case that we wanted to explore. We really haven't had any issues with the platform. I am not sure how to make feature requests, but this survey looks to be a good start.

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

I think Lucidspark performs best in conjunction with Lucidcharts. There are other whiteboarding apps that have just as good, if not better feature sets. However, none of these allow for the quick transition to a working document that we regularly use with Lucid. Additionally, Lucidspark had the best filtering/sorting tools and the easiest meeting tools (timers, votes, etc) in my opinion

Return on Investment

Alma Suite

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidspark

  • I saw increased customer confidence. As we were discussing ideas and the project, everyone was able to capture details, so there was little or no ambiguity.
  • Meetings are more effective, shorter, and we have a deliverable from each meeting that all attendees can access.
  • The diagrams and workflows are beautiful.
