Overall Satisfaction with Gliffy

We use Gliffy as an add on in our Google Doc templates in G-Suite. Gliffy offers us a bit of flexibility when we are using flowcharts to describe processes and other similar applications. Gliffy, offering a better low-cost solution than competitors, (lucid charts etc) is sufficient for most of our charting applications.
  • Low-cost quick solutions
  • Basic, professional looking flowcharts & org charts
  • Great integration into Google Docs & G-Suite
  • The shapes library isn't as large as some competitors
  • Not ideal for finely-detailed work (I switch to other products when laying out circuits/schematics etc)
  • Because of the integration to G-Suite we have only positive impacts
  • Gliffy allows us to rapidly scale information through our organisation
I prefer Gliffy due to several factors:
1. Price
2. Ease of use
3. Portability to the rest of the organisation

On the other hand, when I want really detailed work, or in other specific use cases, I need to use Lucidchart for the finer work.
I specifically like Gliffy for users who are not familiar with flow charting programs and require a little more functionality than a Google image can offer. We use it primarily in the flow-charting of processes and have previously used the "swim lane" function heavily.
