Trusted by industry-leading brands
Advanced features that work where you work
Cloud-based software for added flexibility
Edraw is a download-only desktop software, leaving you to deal with constant product updates, outdated versions, and lost files. Lucidchart’s cloud-based software avoids all these hassles while letting you access your work from any computer, mobile device, or operating system.
Advanced features that simplify the diagramming experience
Lucidchart gives you access to advanced features like automated diagramming, data linking, conditional formatting, and more—with new features being added constantly. Aside from basic diagramming tools, Edraw’s feature set is limited.
Real-time collaboration to keep you connected
Lucidchart supports real-time collaboration with team members in the same document, as well as @mention notifications and shape-specific commenting. Edraw’s collaborative functionality is limited to uploading and sharing in a team cloud.
Industry-leading apps that work with your team
Edraw requires its users to work in their environment with limited connections to other platforms. Lucidchart’s powerful integrations let users connect with today’s leading applications, including G Suite, Microsoft Office, Slack, Atlassian, and more.
Mobile support for every user and device
Not only is Lucidchart available on desktops and tablets, but our mobile apps for Android and iOS also let you access and edit your work anywhere, at any time, on any mobile device. Edraw is only available on the desktop.

I started my diagramming experience back in 2011 with Edraw Max. However, I tried out Lucidchart in 2016, and I have never had the cause to look back ever since.
