Creately is now in Japanese & Chinese, plus we fixed some bugs!

I really hope you enjoyed the glut of posts we published, which covered UML diagrams and Org Charts, recently. You can bet we got more knowledge-based posts coming your way this week. But we just had to break up this exciting trend for some other exciting news. Remember how we told you about how Creately got faster with its response time earlier this month? Well, now we’re eager to let you know that we put in some hard work to sort out quite a few bugs, like those that are related to opening up diagrams and the behavior of connectors, for good. All this, just so you can enjoy uninterrupted, intuitive, and easy and fast diagramming with just a click or two.

And there’s more swell news. It’s just over a month since we got Creately and Creately Desktop up and running in German. Thanks to our Localization Program, we’ve got both Japanese and Chinese added onto our language portfolio as well. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the hard work put in by Tatsuya Aoyagi and Cai Ping. So, gentlemen, on behalf of the Creately team, here’s a massive THANK YOU for your support!

If you have used Creately in German, Japanese or Chinese, please do let us know your thoughts. We really would appreciate your feedback. While we’ve got Creately conversant with three global languages, we have started working on getting French, Russian and Spanish sorted as well. As a concluding note, if you know French, Russian and Spanish or any other global language and are happy to help us out, please do get in touch with us. As a token of all the support you give us with these translations, we’ll be glad to offer you some really cool freebies in return! =)

Diagrams Anywhere: A unique feature of Creately Desktop

Users of Creately would know that this app has always been about working on diagrams and sharing them with ease, wherever you are. Collaborating on diagrams within your own team with publishing that’s 100% secure, and embedding diagrams on Google sites and social media is part and parcel of the Creately experience. Moreover, users would also be familiar with its intelligent features like how when embedding a diagram (via the Diagram Viewer) on a Google site would still mean that you could make changes to the diagram on Creately, thereby updating those changes on the Diagram Viewer.

So what more could we offer on the desktop version of Creately? Conventionally, when putting out an online app and then the same app as a desktop version, you’d expect them to be two separate products. But (we thought) why don’t we amalgamate both the online and desktop versions? What links both the online and offline versions would be this exciting and potent feature – Diagrams Anywhere.

New Creately Team Plans - Perfect for Project Teams

posted08/04/10

New Creately Team Plans

Features, Marketing, news, plans, release

team-plan2

Today we’re very happy to announce the new Creately Team plans. We have seen that many of you use Creately in your own project teams already. But it has not been easy to manage who is in your team, who is being billed and for which plan or even which plan a team member requires. Creately Team plans solve these issues.

The Team plans are perfect for cross-functional Business, Design and Development Teams. If you run a consulting business, a design house or a development team - in fact if you are part of any team where visual communication and collaboration is key, the Creately Team Plan is designed for you.

Better Team Management

Creately Team plans start from just $8.95/user/month with a minimum of 3 users in a plan. We think you’ll agree that this is excellent value with the entire team receiving all the capabilities of our Pro plan ($9.95/month) plus enhancements to project sharing. As the team owner you also have access to the team management portal which allows you to easily add and remove team members, assign new roles and dynamically increase or decrease your team size. The beauty of this is you only ever pay for the number of team members in your team. We don’t pigeon hole you by team size.

At-a-Glance

Check out the new Creately Plans


Here’s a quick look at exactly what you’ll get on the new Team Plan:

  • Unlimited Export & Publishing with no Creately watermark
  • Unlimited Diagram Storage
  • Unlimited Diagram Sharing
  • Unlimited Project Workspaces
  • Project Sharing with no limitations, everyone on the Team can create diagrams in your Projects
  • User management to add and remove Users from your Team account
  • Team contact list so its easier to share within your Team
  • Multiple administrator levels to manage large, distributed Project Teams
  • Pay by Credit Card or Paypal

Unlike the Pro and Plus Plans, the new Team Plans lets you invite collaborators from your Team account to work on existing documents and create new documents inside shared projects. This makes project collaboration hassle free and lets you control who has access to which project documents.

We’re confident the Creately Team plans will suit you and your project team.

PS. Special thanks to everyone who’s helped us along the way with your support, feedback and kind words.
