Why teams choose Lucidchart

The most intelligent diagramming solution

The most intelligent diagramming solution

With advanced data and automation capabilities, Lucidchart allows you to create visualizations that capture greater complexity and depth. For example, you can use data linking to connect the steps of a process to actual data, or use formulas with custom data fields for calculations. Gliffy, in comparison, has limited features for advanced diagramming.

Integrations that go beyond Atlassian

Integrations that go beyond Atlassian

Like Gliffy, Lucidchart integrates seamlessly with Confluence and Jira to help make building and maintaining documentation effortless. But Lucidchart integrates with a number of other apps that support broader use cases, such as BambooHR, LeanIX, Salesforce, and ServiceNow. Its open API also enables developers to build custom integrations, so opportunities are endless.

Fully functional anytime, anywhere

Fully functional anytime, anywhere

Lucidchart is cloud-based and built to work across devices, browsers, and operating systems—including Linux, Mac, and Windows. Lucidchart Android and iOS apps allow you to create and access diagrams on the go. Gliffy’s full functionality is limited to the desktop, and it’s more difficult to build diagrams outside of Atlassian products.

Designed to help teams work together

Lucidchart boosts collaboration by allowing entire teams to create and update diagrams simultaneously. With @mention comments and automatic sharing, it’s easy to keep your team on the same page, even when you’re working across zip codes and time zones. Gliffy’s collaborative features are far more basic, especially outside of Confluence and Jira.

“Lucidchart allows us to display content in real time in Confluence. With other software programs, you have to export a diagram and then add and manage it on another file server. With Lucidchart, there is none of that. Utilizing Lucidchart’s integration with Confluence enables us to work very efficiently.”

Byeongok Ha - BP3 Team

“I like that Lucidchart allows me to properly align and join objects. There’s a lot of flexibility, and I can create a diagram that looks very nice but was still very easy to make."

Rahul Amin - Fintech Product Manager at Uber

“I think organizations realize that Lucidchart is the tool of choice because of its visual modeling, layering, math functions, and collaboration capabilities. Nothing comes close.”

Dennis Jones - Agile Coach
