  • "I was originally looking for Visio, since that's what I'm used to using, but there is no Visio for Mac. So this was the next best option. And quite frankly I think its on par with Visio... In fact, I like it better than Visio." - Brian Wallin, Engineer at
  • "I'll be honest, I don't like OmniGraffle. It's too clunky. And Visio is overkill for 95% of people. Lucidchart is incredibly easy to use. Anyone can very quickly figure out what they're doing. That functionality makes it a great solution." 

- Amanda Somma, PMO for Enable Path
  • "Coming from the Visio world previously, I doubted that any remote or web-based application would be able to be as responsive as Visio. Lucidchart is fantastic, and I never expected that." - Nicholas Williams, Senior Technical Design Engineer at Pearson
