"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

"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
