Go beyond mind maps with Lucidchart

  1. Functionality that supports every use case

    MindMeister is great for creating mind maps, but its other diagramming abilities are extremely limited. Lucidchart lets you build dynamic mind maps, construct org charts from CSV files, draw floorplans, create flowcharts, and much more within a single platform.

  2. Advanced features for limitless diagramming potential

    Aside from basic diagramming tools, MindMeister's feature set is limited. With Lucidchart, you get access to advanced features like data linking, automated diagramming, and conditional formatting. Plus, new features are added and refined weekly.

  3. Easy-to-use and intuitive interface

    Don’t waste time with MindMeister’s outdated interface and limited formatting. Instead, choose Lucidchart’s simple, intuitive workspace, which offers easy-to-use mind map shapes and over 1000 templates to help you build your diagrams more quickly.

  4. Seamless collaboration with teams and stakeholders

    MindMeister offers basic collaborative functionality with group chats and messages. Lucidchart takes collaboration a step further with in-editor chat, @mention comments, collaborative cursors, thorough revision history, and more.

  5. Dynamic integrations with endless possibilities

    Lucidchart lets you easily connect to all of the apps you use every day, including G Suite, Microsoft Office, Slack, Salesforce, Atlassian, and more. In contrast, MindMeister provides limited connections to other software and requires users to work in their environment.
