We found Creately fun to use and definitely easier and more logical than other diagramming tools we have used in the past. Every part of the user interface has been carefully considered to optimize your time creating the chart...
Creately manages to harness the abilities and tools that traditional design and graphics software offer, but packages this functionality in an easy to use application that allows for collaboration between users.
If you're looking to plan out a project, share code design, or craft a flowchart for friends or coworkers, Creately offers a no-software tool with a nice and easy learning curve.
Wow! The hardest part about creating a diagram is getting input from multiple workers on the project. Creately is a simple idea which does the hard work for you; it creates a spot where collaboration on diagrams is fast and easy. Your team can create anything from a map for a business plan, flowcharts, or just about any visual diagram you can think of.
Overall, Creately won me over — I’m in love. I’m a huge fan of charts and diagrams, and use them both personally and professionally. I’ve found that most diagram drawing apps tend to either be easy to use and lack features, or full-featured, pricey, and complicated. There was a serious hole to fill and Creately stepped in and fills it beautifully.
Creately harnesses the power of expensive desktop design software and neatly delivers the same features in an online tool. Multiple users can collaborate on diagrams using Creately, the tool allows users to create anything from simple flowcharts to complex electronics diagrams.
I am all praise for this one. The interface is neat, interactive and impressive, the entire functionality and features are easy to manage. I have used it and I have loved it given that I am not a big fan of such tools on the Web and always prefer desktop software.
One of its strengths is that it provides a variety of starting templates. These include UML class diagrams, entity relationship diagrams, sitemaps, wireframes, and much more. You can produce almost any chart or diagram you would need in planning the user experience and data model of your application within the Creately web application.

Cross Platform Online Solution
I’ve used Visio for years, but was looking for a cross platform online solution for doing flow diagrams and wireframes. Now my co-workers with Macs can access my drawings and edit them. And no more creating Visio files and copying them into Word to send them – just give access to the client so they can view them online.

Making Web UIs is EASY!
The best part of it is its collaboration capabilities
"As we started to write the report, we had to decide what UML tool to use. Our most important concern was that the tool has to be cross-platform. Since Creately is web-based, our concern about cross-platform support is taken care of. It can be used to create informational diagrams, flowcharts, organizational charts, UML designs, mind-maps and many other diagram types. The best part of it is its collaboration capabilities."
-Serkan Olgun, Virtual Impact
"Awesome... fantastic website to create the online documents of shapes like ERD diagrams, Flow charts, and UML diagrams etc."
