Why are we so sure?
We have seen customer after customer take advantage of these integrations to improve their businesses. For example, Dan Marma at Okta communicates complex solutions to his clients by including Lucidchart diagrams directly in client proposals in Google Docs or Word.
Other customers have created interactive presentations by embedding Lucidchart diagrams in PowerPoint and then using hotspots to activate different layers in the diagram or link to external resources.
We also see a lot of customers use our Slack integration to create virtual whiteboards for teams to work on ideas and collaborate remotely.
Here at Lucidchart, we’ve created diagrams for everyday business procedures, such as flowcharts that map out our recruiting process, sales dashboards, diagrams for scoping product sprints, and storyboards and sitemaps for marketing projects. Many of these diagrams are created in Lucidchart and then housed on Confluence pages so other Lucidities can easily search, view, and share them.
Try adding diagrams to your favorite applications today. We bet you’ll be surprised by how much they aid communication, understanding, and efficiency among team members, clients, leadership, or any number of other audiences.
