Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Lucid Software today announced an integration between its diagramming application Lucidchart and Jive Software, the industry’s largest pure-play social business provider. The partnership will enable Lucidchart to integrate with the newly released next-generation Jive platform, now available in Jive Cloud. This integration takes advantage of Jive !App Experiences, which allows users to seamlessly use and interact with business applications with a single click in Jive.
Last year, Jive pioneered the use of applications in social business with the Jive Apps Market, providing an array of purpose- built apps that users could easily install to extend the functionality of the Jive platform. Jive !App Experiences take this capability a big step further, enabling users to invoke powerful applications and merge them fluidly into documents, discussions, and other activities.
“We are thrilled to be a launch partner for Jive !Apps Experiences,” said Karl Sun, Lucidchart CEO. “Jive has taken content creation to the next level by creating a very smooth user experience with other business apps like Lucidchart. Diagramming is just one click away now for Jive users.”
When editing in Jive, users simply type a “!” character and choose !Lucidchart to immediately select an existing diagram or create a new diagram in Lucidchart. Users can therefore easily embed and share diagrams including business process flowcharts, mind maps, organizational charts and more within Jive. In addition, Jive users can seamlessly import and edit Microsoft Visio documents using Lucidchart.
“We are excited to have such an innovative company as Lucidchart as a launch partner for our new Jive !App Experiences,” said Robin Bordoli, VP Jive Apps Market at Jive. “With the availability of the Lucidchart !App, Jive users will now have richer communication experiences with diagrams easily embedded right inside Jive content, driving increased levels of productivity and innovation. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Jive users can install Lucidchart from the Jive Apps Market to begin diagramming immediately.
Lucidchart is a web-based diagramming and flowchart software that can be used to create flowcharts, network diagrams, process models, UML diagrams, org charts, mind maps and more right from the browser. Its powerful real-time collaboration features are helping thousands of individuals and businesses work and communicate more efficiently, both internally and with external clients. With its intuitive interface, Lucidchart is also introducing diagramming and visual communication to an entirely new class of users.
