These two diagramming apps have a lot in common, but there are a few things that make Gliffy a great Smartdraw alternative.
If your team works in Atlassian, Gliffy is the most convenient choice. With the deepest Atlassian integrations of any diagramming app, you can diagram alongside your documentation in Confluence, no connector required. Then, publish your diagrams within Confluence pages and add them to any other page, fully searchable and always automatically updated.
"Very clean design, easily creatable custom shape libraries, and simple editing tools make this a fun tool to work with for the majority of my design work. I’m in this tool daily!"– Consultant in Information Technology and Services
Our users love how easy it is to use Gliffy. Our interface is user-friendly and quick to learn and our templates are easily customizable, so you can truly make them your own.
Gliffy was the first app to receive Cloud Fortified certification from Atlassian, and we’re always prioritizing security. We know visual collaboration and problem-solving sometimes requires that teams share sensitive information, so we’re committed to providing a safe and secure diagramming experience.
"Easy for all users to get started with and make use of. The user interface is familiar and won’t confuse users. The navigation is sensible when compared to some competitors." – Mark M.
Our onboarding guide makes it easy for new technical or non-technical users to start diagramming in no time. Whenever you need something, our awesome support team is here to help.
Because of Gliffy’s direct integration with Confluence, it’s easy to use across your whole organization and ready to scale as your team does. Our average Atlassian app install has over 700 users, and we have the support and admin controls that enterprise teams need.
Gliffy is the go-to option for IT teams, especially those working in Confluence. That’s because we make it easy to adopt throughout your organization and manage as your team grows.
