Lucidchart offers powerful functionality without Visio’s steep learning curve, simplifying the creation of even the most complex diagrams. Since the platform is in the cloud, you can share your diagrams with colleagues to collaborate in real time, regardless of location. Making the switch to Lucidchart is seamless, thanks to our Visio import/export.
Ease of use
Lucidchart is a powerful Visio alternative, allowing you to quickly and easily build both simple and complex diagrams online with the platform’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface. When you diagram in Lucidchart, you spend more time innovating and less time creating.
Transition to Lucidchart without missing a beat—import all your Visio documents and continue diagramming where you left off. Still working with colleagues stuck in Visio? Export your Lucidchart diagrams as Visio files to share with them until they make the switch too.
Even if your colleagues send you Visio files, Lucidchart makes it possible to still collaborate. Simply import the file into Lucidchart so you can view the diagram and make any changes. Then export the diagram as an image or Visio file to send back to your colleagues.
Visio for Mac and PC
Lucidchart is completely web based, which means no installations, downloads, or updates and no worrying about compatibility. Work on any browser from any device at any time. You’ll get all the same functionality as a desktop tool, but it’s accessible from anywhere.
“We were long time Visio users, and it was coming time to upgrade Visio again—which was no a small cost. We looked around and came across Lucidchart. The platform imported our Visio diagrams without any issue. We found Lucidchart so much easier to use, and it was great being able to share out master copies of our diagrams with our clients. I also like that it is completely web based, and we don't have to install anything on our machines any more.”Philip D., Capterra Reviews
