Well suited scenarios include IT portfolio management, project portfolio management, enterprise architecture planning, modeling of business capabilities, using standard frameworks that ship out of the box such as TOGAF, and integration with SharePoint. Less appropriate scenarios would be detailed data modeling and using the tool expecting to get model drive code execution.

We have deployed chatbots across our markets and within these markets we have speficic POCs. With the collaborative features of Lucid Chart, teams can go together on 1 platform and instantaneously mind-map flows for chatbots. Another example is through Lucidchart our T&Q was able to effectively conduct process trainings. Agents are able to effectively appreciate learning through visuals and not through lengthy documents.

Lucid Software
  • Large number of predefined charts, diagrams, flows
  • A great repository of various symbols and objects
  • The easiness of using and manipulating objects and shapes. There is a lot of auto-editing and adjusting which the software does for you which saves a lot of your time.
  • Easy way of duplicating shapes.
  • While working with the app everything feels organic and natural. You don't get the clunky/limited feeling which happens with some other similar apps.

Cons
Avolution
  • More standard connectors for integration with other modeling tools could be beneficial for companies having legacy tools/fragmented toolsets.
  • Better automated diagramming features would be useful.

  • I have used the templates before and those are nice! I would like to see more
  • The ONLY complaint I can come up with is that there has been several times that my screen will lock up and i have to fully refresh it, even when it is a fairly fresh load.

I would rate the overall support for Lucidchart as a 9. The support provided is generally robust and responsive. Their help center, tutorials, and webinars offer extensive resources for users. The ticket-based support system is effective, providing timely resolutions to most issues. Moreover, they actively gather user feedback, demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement

- Microsoft tools are manual and data is not centralized
- ARIS is not as flexible as Avolution
- LeanIX is close, but lacks business content/accelerators that Avolution provides
- LeanIX is in the cloud and multi-user

Lucidchart is well beyond Microsoft Visio and is constantly improving. Visio is pretty much stagnant and hasn't been improved for several years, Lucid is constantly adding new functionality like AI powered functions and tools. We have no reason to pay for Visio licenses when Lucid can provide so much more for less.

  • It sure has. It has saved me a lot of time. Think of all the time I could have wasted trying to learn a program that does the same thing, whereas Lucidchart just does it with ease, learn as you go, and be a boss at it.
  • Lucidchart has increased productivity. My diagrams have helped co-workers find connectivity and helped them troubleshoot devices. This has saved time and increased productivity.
