Draper, UT (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
Lucidchart announced today that its critically acclaimed diagramming application now comes pre-installed for all users of the latest version of Jive, the industry’s largest pure-play social business provider. All users of Jive 6 will now be able to draw and share diagrams from within Jive with just one click.
Lucidchart is the first pre-installed third-party app available across Jive 6 and Jive Cloud.This integration with the Jive platform allows each Jive user to quickly and easily draw flowcharts, org charts, mockups, and more. No installation is necessary--users just click on the app from their home page and begin diagramming instantly. Lucidchart joins Wikipedia and other Jive-produced apps in the first round of applications designed to enhance productivity within the platform.
“We’ve enjoyed a great relationship with Jive since we integrated earlier this year,” said Dave Grow, VP of Operations and Strategy at Lucidchart. “When they approached us with the idea of expanding our integration, we jumped at the chance. Jive provides a smooth app experience for their users, which aligns perfectly with our goal of fast, continuous productivity.”
Since May 2012, Lucidchart has been available in the Jive App Market. In that short time, it has become the most-installed third-party application. Lucidchart utilizes the Jive !App Experiences functionality, which enables users to merge powerful apps into documents, discussions, and other activities. With the new pre-installed app, accessing Lucidchart has never been easier.
To use the app, users simply click on the “Apps” button at the top of the screen to open a display window. From there, users select the Lucidchart app and have the choice of creating a new Lucidchart account or connecting an existing account.The entire process is completed in seconds.
Mark Weitzel, Director of Platform and Ecosystem at Jive, said, “We were excited to make Lucid pre-installed for everyone that uses the Jive Apps Market. Because they are leveraging our !App Experiences, the integration is fluid and seamless. Lucidchart is a great example of how applications can integrate and extend the capability of the Jive platform, creating a great experience for Jive customers."
Users who install the app will have access to extensive shape libraries and Lucidchart’s signature collaboration features. Users can unlock Lucidchart’s premium features, which include Visio import/export and Visio stencil import, by upgrading their accounts for a monthly fee.
