UX designers need to make a lot of people happy. They need to take the product manager’s vision and form a more complete user journey. They need to provide enough detail so engineers know exactly what they should build. They need to pay attention to users and their pain points to provide a product that benefits the customer.
To accomplish all of these goals, UX designers might need a little help. For many companies around the world, “a little help” comes in the form of Lucidchart. Our diagramming tool helps teams visualize the functionality of a product and keep everyone on the same page.
Check out these two stories of Lucidchart users who diagrammed their way to successful product designs.
Kicking duplication to the curb at Mozilla
When Ryan Feeley and John Gruen set out to update Firefox Sync, they encountered a problem that many designers can identify with. They publish their work in many forms—user flow diagrams, mockups, wireframes—and run into problems when their design assets become out of date or are duplicated. Ryan and John needed one place for the latest diagrams and mockups, so they turned to Lucidchart and its Dropbox integration.
They created a Dropbox folder for their design assets. Then they created a user flow diagram in Lucidchart and linked to the Dropbox URLs. Colleagues could see exactly how the user experience would look. And the best part? Ryan and John only needed to update two places—the Lucidchart document and the Dropbox folder—for the entire company to have the most current information.

Building faster user flows in a long development process
UX Designer Abinash Mohanty used plenty of tools while he worked on 1Group, a system designed to connect and provide information to all of the real estate brokers in India. After surveying real estate brokers and identifying the top pain points to solve with the app, Mohanty used Lucidchart in combination with Sketch to build user flows that showed broker verification, referrals, and other actions.
