Enterprise Architect Alternative

Cost savings

Enterprise Architect makes you pay over $500 per user for access to all of its shape libraries—and that doesn’t include the steep yearly maintenance fees. Choose Lucidchart and pay just a few dollars each month.

Real collaboration

Because Lucidchart is web-based, sharing has never been simpler. Publish your documents to social media, or invite others to collaborate with you on them in real-time. You can use our chat and commenting features to stay on the same page.

Web-based software

Lucidchart offers more shape libraries at a fraction of the cost. Like Enterprise Architect, we provide mind maps and UML, but it doesn't stop there. You'll also find org charts, Venn diagrams, floor plans, mockups, site maps, and more.

Feature Highlights

Lucidchart’s intuitive features bring you a diagramming tool that’s easy from the start. Not only will you save money, you’ll also experience productivity improvements! With Free, Basic, Pro, and Team accounts, you'll find a plan that fits your needs and budget.
