Why teams choose Lucidchart

Intelligent, dynamic diagramming

Intelligent, dynamic diagramming

Lucidchart goes way beyond basic diagramming. It offers standard shape libraries but also allows you to create custom shapes and include custom shape data. Toggle layers to see and compare current and future states—and to automatically highlight differences from a previous version. Mural doesn’t support layers, which are crucial for creating dynamic diagrams.

Data and automation for actionable insights

Data and automation for actionable insights

With advanced Lucidchart data and automation features, you can transform complex data into actionable insights. Apply formulas with custom data fields for calculations, or use data linking to connect the steps of a process to actual data. Mural doesn’t offer these data capabilities and can’t compete with Lucidchart on data and automation.

Integrations to help you do more

Integrations to help you do more

Lucidchart integrates seamlessly with a number of industry-leading apps such as Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, Slack, and many more. But it also offers integrations to support broader use cases (such as automated org charts) that Mural doesn’t. They include BambooHR, ERD import and export from SQL, LeanIX, Salesforce, and ServiceNow.

Intuitive and easy to use

Intuitive and easy to use

The Lucidchart interface and simple, drag-and-drop capabilities were designed to accelerate the speed of adoption by maximizing ease of use. Mural, in contrast, has a steep learning curve and can be difficult to navigate. For many new users, getting the most from Mural’s features requires facilitated training.

“We create UML diagrams, process flows, and database designs. We know that real-time collaboration and innovation is essential—that's why we rely on Lucidchart for all these critical artifacts.”

David Hardwick - CTO at BetterCloud

“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. It’s my go-to when I am trying to lay something out."

Rahul Amin - Fintech Product Manager at Uber

“We love the portability of Lucidchart—being able to share a link with somebody in China, Montreal, or Redwood City, and know that we’re all on the same page. Being able to work across [platforms] via browser and still see the same picture is great.”

Pablo Valarezo - Expert Information Security Manager at Acxiom
