Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
Lucid Software today announced that it has integrated its Lucidchart diagramming application with the newly released Google DriveTM, Google's cloud storage and collaboration service. Lucidchart is a web-based application used by hundreds of thousands of individuals and businesses worldwide to communicate information visually through diagrams and work together more efficiently.
"By integrating with Drive, our users can create, edit, and manage all their diagrams even easier than before, in a single place with all their other files," says Karl Sun, company CEO. “Lucidchart is excited to work with Google and be one of the first apps to partner with Google Drive."
Lucidchart is a web-based diagramming application used to create sophisticated diagrams such as flowcharts, process models, mind maps and more, as well as wireframes and mockups, right in a web browser. Its powerful collaboration features allow users to work together on documents at the same time with colleagues and clients. Changes are synchronized and appear to other users simultaneously in real time.
"Giving Google Drive users the ability to to build diagrams, flowcharts, and other sophisticated drawings from anywhere using Lucidchart is a huge leap in productivity for our users," said Scott Johnston, Group Product Manager at Google. "We're excited to have Lucidchart as a Google Drive launch partner."
As a Google Drive application, Lucidchart users can store all their Lucidchart diagrams and mockups in Drive, together with not only their Google docs and spreadsheets, but also other content they’ve uploaded such as legacy Microsoft Visio files. Users can launch Lucidchart simply by clicking on the listing in Drive, and can also create new diagrams from the Drive menu. Additionally, users can select a Visio file and open it with Lucidchart, where they can edit the diagram and save the result back to Drive.
Users can install Lucidchart’s Google Drive app through its Chrome Web Store listing.
About Google Drive
Google Drive is a cloud storage and collaboration service from Google. Drive allows people to store their files online and access them from any device: in desktop folders on Mac or PC computers, in mobile apps on Android or iOS devices, or from any web browser by visiting drive.google.com. Google Drive is available with 5GB of storage for free, and additional storage may be purchased.
Google Drive also allows people to create, edit and share files with one another. Google Drive applications are third-party applications that work seamlessly with Drive. By integrating with the user account and file data stored in Drive, these web applications provide a simple way for people to open files from Drive, make changes or edits in the application, and then save the updated file in Drive. Google Drive applications are available in the Chrome Web Store.
