Likelihood to Recommend

ConceptDraw MINDMAP

MINDMAP is very focused on brainstorming and branching hierarchies of ideas and planning. Outside of those uses a more general diagramming software package like ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a better option.

Lucidchart

Lucidchart is perfect for organizations with thin client devices or Bring Your Own (BYO) device policies because there is no download or installation needed and only require a web browser to use it. However, integration to industry-leading application might come at a cost. Moreover, in order to collaborate all team members must also already signed-up with Lucidchart.

Lucidchart

  • Allows individuals to further realize engineering issues and collaborate, globally in real time, in order to resolve the issues.
  • Allows individuals and teams to define a workflow or process to use for a platform or action. For instance, before selecting an HRIS platform, we used Lucidchart to map out all HRIS processes which made selecting a platform ridiculously simple.
  • Lucidchart also allows anyone to easily publish their output so that users, both internally and externally, can view their ideas without needing a license, login or any complicated understanding.
  • The mobile aspects of Lucidchart are also fantastic as an individual can create a concept or design and present it to individuals right from their pocket.

Cons

ConceptDraw MINDMAP

  • Interface can be a bit cluttered, takes some work to use efficiently for more than basic maps.

Lucidchart

  • The process for browsing and managing uploaded user images seems a little off. For example, I frequently will use screen captures as graphical elements of a document. While LucidChart fully supports doing so, it might be helpful to have a more powerful interface when reviewing/browsing/selecting files that are serving duty as custom images.
  • I create fairly involved sitemaps and love the sitemaps tools which let you type your hierarchy into the diagram in a popup and see that hierarchy anytime you click on a shape. However, the popup is small, and when I click on a shape in my wireframe, the popup doesn't jump to and highlight the item I've selected in the hierarchy. This makes it challenging to find the item I'm trying to work with in the popup hierarchy.
  • The cost is a big deal, initially, Lucidchart was freemium and was free for us to use the team license which we made available to our users at the university. Without warning, they changed their license structure and began charging for this. Now if our users want to have the same functionality they have to purchase a license or request for an education discount which is a tedious process. The price is a little on the high side, especially if you want to add more members to your Lucidcart team.
  • Sometimes it takes time to load the documents, and depending on the complexity of the document that is being developed, it hangs up (you must have a good internet connection) if you do not have a connection, you can not use this software.
  • Sometimes it can be frustrating to format shapes and resize them at times. While the software is fairly user friendly I have definitely gotten frustrated at times trying to resize images and have had issues when I was trying to connect certain processes to another and the program picks the wrong shape to connect to. I also wish it was a bit easier to print out these charts, but I don't think it's very fair to blame the software on that since everyone's charts are going to vary by width/size so it's up to the user to format it for printing.

Lucid Chart is as user friendly as you could need apart from some limits on images and icons. Sizes, shapes, colours, layouts and templates are all there for you so all you need to do is use them appropriately. It is a very comprehensive tool for what it needs to do

Interestingly enough we only interacted with support at the initial setup of SSO integration. The product has worked flawlessly since and has not necessitated calls or emails to tech support. Based on our experience with support around SSO I can be certain that Lucidchart is very responsive and would resolve any technical problem in no time

Alternatives Considered

ConceptDraw MINDMAP

Best tool for brainstorming ideas and gathering requirements with an easy way to connect the information. The other software which we tried had limited options and were more time consuming. The pricing model of ConceptDraw MINDMAP is simple and straightforward. Apart from pricing, the mind mapper tools gives the best way to express your idea and easy to build presentations.

We use Lucidchart primarily because it is easier to onboard new users to this program than it is to get them up-to-speed with other tools. It has also been the most cost-effective tool we have used so far

  • I can't comment on ROI as that's not really measurable in my environment and usage of Lucidchart, but I can say it's greatly increased my speed in creating documents like this for use with colleagues over whiteboarding, pen & paper, and other illustration applications.
