SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucid, the leading provider of visual collaboration software, today announced the expansion of its visual collaboration suite with the release of Lucidspark, a cloud-based virtual whiteboard where teams can work together in real time.
"The rise of remote workforces has brought challenges with cross-team collaboration to the forefront of daily workflows. The importance of being able to bring teams together into a common space to brainstorm and work together has never been more apparent," said Karl Sun, co-founder and CEO at Lucid. "Lucidspark's intuitive digital canvas enables teams to effectively brainstorm, collaborate and align on new ideas and organize collective thinking into actionable next steps, whether together or remote. This is an exciting addition to our visual collaboration suite and will help us to further execute on our mission of helping teams see and build the future."
By using Lucidspark, teams are able to more effectively:
- IDEATE: Capture and share ideas in a virtual whiteboard that provides the flexibility to maximize individual and team creativity. Lucidspark provides an infinite canvas to brainstorm, ideate, and work together even if teams are miles apart.
- CREATE: Collaborate seamlessly and get everyone aligned. Teams can work together in real time or asynchronously and easily keep track of everyone's contributions. Lucidspark also provides powerful functionality to facilitate structured sessions, like allowing leaders to set the pace and clarify roles while participants can vote and react to help prioritize ideas.
- ACT: Build shared consensus, align teams on priorities and transform ideas into next steps. Team members can automatically organize notes that highlight key results and illustrate actionable insights that can then be shared with leadership for approvals and buy-in. From there, teams can develop the agile workflows and game plans needed to build momentum and keep projects moving forward.
With the addition of Lucidspark, Lucid continues to round out its visual collaboration suite and provides users with an end-to-end experience that helps teams truly see and build the future. Lucidspark integrates with Lucid's industry-leading intelligent diagramming application, Lucidchart, making it possible to collaborate from initial idea through reality. For instance, once a team brainstorms details of a new application in Lucidspark, they can transition into Lucidchart to visualize the scrum teams, organizational processes and technical systems that will be necessary to make the application a reality.
In this way, Lucidspark gives the perfect lead-in to Lucidchart by focusing on ideation, providing a place to facilitate any discussion, from strategic planning to large scale scrum planning. Together, the suite enables teams to collaborate and communicate clearly about the most complex topics, no matter where the teams are located.
This announcement comes on the heels of an exciting year for Lucid, having closed an additional round of $52 million in funding, passing $100 million in ARR and landing on Forbes 2020 Cloud 100 list.
