    Lucidchart

    Lucidchart is a great tool to design diagrams within a collaborative environment. It is well-suited for enterprise teams who need to design and visualize large-scale enterprise-grade applications. It also helps visualize and communicate complex workflows within applications or suites of applications. The built-in templates for different kinds of diagrams also help your teams keep up-to-speed with the industry-accepted base diagrams.

    Feature of granting the right to
    users/groups for specific entries (role-based), access of it through Single
    Sign On internally, and for remote users through multiple platforms like
    Mobile/PC/Tablet is really helpful in this pandemic or work from anywhere culture
    and it helped us in achieving our business outcome, some features are missing
    like the ease of document printing, of workflow instant update access.

    Pros

    Lucidchart

    • 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.

    • RSS Feeds: As a project manager (at the time and still am in a sense) being updated as information is posted helped me to stay on top of progress as it happened. The feeds also allows me to foresee problems before they happened, coming in like Super Woman to save the day...kidding (or am I?).
    • Customizable workspaces: While we've got our video project workflows down to a science, our website projects are a different monster. Because we offer customized websites, each client's needs are different from the next. Vibe's Workspaces reflects this - not only for our projects, but for the users as well. Everyone has a different way of organizing their thoughts and with Vibe no one has to fall in line with cookie cutter layouts...or at least they can start out with one and develop it into their own.
    • My god MOBILE DEVICE Support: I know many many many project collaboration tools have migrated to the mobile device platform - but I found that a lot of times, features are limited. I'm always on a go and can't always access my Surface for a brief look at what's going on. But when you fall in love with a platform, it makes it all the better that it is usable outside the confines of my desktop box.

    Cons

    Lucidchart

    • [In my opinion,] if there is one thing, perhaps it would be to slap Microsoft in the face a little harder.
    • [Microsoft] Visio is ok, but don't try to copy them or re-invent the networking diagram world by becoming greater than [Microsoft] Visio.

    • Having build lot of websites over the years this is one of the most user unfriendly systems I [have] run across. The learning curve is very steep and a lot of stuff is not findable on the internet.
    • The Java used under water has some quirks that makes working with the interface almost undoable. If you make a tree and you change something in that tree it is completely reset to the top level every time so the workflow is broken constantly.
    • There is no copy option in the tool which is strange as 80% of the things you build is the same or similar with minor adjustments like a different color code. Like the previous remark this makes the workflow constantly interrupted.
    • The learning curve for a regular user is also a little too steep. They can do too much and it goes beyond the daily things they need to do with it. To configure Novell Vibe so that the user is protected from doing or seeing too much is a lot of work which means you will have to hire an FTE to manage Novell Vibe alone.
    • Because the end product depends on the use of jsp pages a lot it requires you to hire a specialist with a big salary-tag to build it for you. once it is up and running changes will be very dependant on the guy you hired to build it!

    We would never go back to a spreadsheet to manage our inventory! Since Vibe is essentially free for us there's no reason not to continue using it. We plan on rolling out more processes in other departments for the coming year. The biggest obstacle is change. People don't want to change doing things they have been doing for years. If the workflow saves time people will embrace it.

    Lucidchart is one of the easiest diagraming tools I have used. I agree that with almost no training anyone can get started quickly and have something created in just a few minutes. It also has some great documentation on how to integrate with other applications. It is also easy to publish or export diagrams that you create.

    At this moment it still looks you need to do a lot to be able to use it and to be honest that time should be used for work not for configuring a communication tool for the business. Yes I understand that it takes time to learn something to use in the organisation , but with this tool I see the help desk having to answer a lot of questions on how to use it or once someone has done something how to undo it.

    Lucidchart has made making any kind of workflows or flowcharts extremely easy. I see no other tool doing this the way Lucidchart is doing. The overall support for Lucidchart is really good, and the FAQ section always comes in handy whenever we are stuck somewhere. Even contacting the Lucidchart team for any support is easy.

    The implementation was good, it is the follow up that we need to do ourselves that takes time and effort.

    Alternatives Considered

    Lucidchart

    PowerPoint does not have the robust features or easy-to-use interface that Lucidchart does. Although PowerPoint integrates well with other MS Office products, it doesn't have the flexibility to create great-looking and common sense process maps like Lucidchart. PowerPoint is also more difficult to share and collaborate on since it only lives in the Microsoft cloud.
    Ricardo Trigueros | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Micro Focus Vibe

    We are a mixed shop (Microsoft and Novell). We had the entire Novell suite and realized Novell Vibe was included. After meeting with Novell and learning what Vibe had to offer for collaboration and application integration, and since we wouldn't incur have any additional costs, we decided to try it before looking at other solutions. We are happy with our decision.

    Return on Investment

    Lucidchart

    • Lucidchart dramatically improved collaboration during the pandemic when teams were operating in a completely virtual fashion.
    • Lucidchart not only allows for collaboration internally, but it allows us to build artifacts and documents which can then be shared directly or exported into a format that is easily shareable and sent to our clients.
    • The adoption of Lucidchart across the enterprise has allowed all our teams to be working in a single platform and speaking a single "language." This has contributed to more seamless handoffs and transitions as projects and customers are passed from one team to another and everyone is using a common tool.

    Micro Focus Vibe

    • It has improved communication. Before often people who needed to know certain things weren't getting the information, now it is delivered automatically.
    • Made forms more efficient.
