I would like to learn more about Lucidspark. When that was released, I was surprised to learn that it came with a separate subscription model and was not included in my existing Lucidchart subscription. I do think the mind mapping or brainstorming features within Lucidspark are something that we can take advantage of but we just haven't found the money yet to buy a subscription.
The pricing and licensing are fine. It has a lot of features that I prefer over some of the other programs, which is good. Being that it is web-based, I feel that it is acceptable that it's on a monthly pay basis. However, I think I pay on an annual basis, which is fine with me.
I'm happy with the pricing of Lucidchart but I can't say I'm completely happy with it. It could be cheaper for what it offers, about $5 cheaper, or Lucid could charge $5 more and add more features, like automation. Right now, it's $15 per user per month. If Lucid had more communication with current users about all the features that they have and all the support, it could justify charging a little more. On the other hand, they have made their billing super-easy for users, such as for people who have to do expense reports. It is probably the easiest platform I'm using when it comes to billing for software as a service.
