ConceptDraw vs Lucidchart
Stay away from outdated desktop software like ConceptDraw and instead find limitless diagramming potential with cloud-based Lucidchart.
Trusted by industry-leading brands
Diagramming software that won’t hold you back
Cloud-based functionality for constant access to your work
With Lucidchart, you never have to worry about outdated versions, lost files, or constant downloads—and you can use our offline mode to work without Internet access. ConceptDraw is only available on desktop, limiting users to dated features and restrictive diagramming.
Advanced features for fast, easy diagramming
ConceptDraw makes it difficult to do more than simple diagramming. With Lucidchart, you get access to advanced features like automated diagramming, data linking, conditional formatting, and so much more to create the customized visuals you need.
Real-time collaboration that keeps teams connected
Lucidchart allows you to work with collaborators in the same document at the same time. You can also use @mention notifications and in-editor chat to make sure you’re on top of updates. ConceptDraw’s outdated desktop software limits collaboration.
Integrations with today’s most popular platforms
ConceptDraw offers few opportunities to connect with other applications. Lucidchart offers more than 20 integrations with industry-leading applications like G Suite, Microsoft Office, Slack, Zapier, and more.
Mobile app support that goes where you go
With Lucidchart, your work is always a click away—you can work from any desktop, tablet, or mobile device, regardless of which operating system you use. ConceptDraw requires users to work from the desktop.
