Why teams choose Lucidchart
Easy for everyone
Lucidchart enables technical users to create complex diagrams with built-in shape libraries, custom shapes, and data visualizations. But it’s not just for technical experts. All users can easily add text, insert image links, and edit colors within documents. Visio’s advanced diagramming tools come with a steep learning curve.
Collaboration features that are off the charts
With Lucidchart, you can do more than create polished visuals. You can collaborate in real time with your team or asynchronously with features for commenting, tagging, and more. While Visio allows users to view the same document simultaneously, its lack of multi-person editing can result in version control issues.
Integrations with industry-leading apps
To increase alignment and bridge silos, Lucidchart integrates seamlessly with the industry-leading apps you and your team use most—everything from AWS, Google, and Microsoft to Okta, Salesforce, Slack, and more. Visio works with other Microsoft products, but it offers a limited number of third-party integrations.
Templates to help you visualize anything
The Lucidchart template gallery features more than 1,000 customizable templates designed to help you visualize any idea, system, process, or workflow faster. Templates are browsable by category and searchable by name or partner. Visio offers fewer than 100 templates for a limited range of use cases.
Compatible with any internet-connected device
As a web-based application, Lucidchart is accessible from any internet-connected device. The desktop version of Visio doesn’t work on all devices. Its web-based alternative, Visio Online, is compatible with Windows, Mac, and other operating systems, but it doesn’t include all the features of the desktop version.
