What our customers say

“A few years ago, we developed our own chart control for our NVH project because we couldn’t find a suitable chart library on the market. During that period, we faced a lot of problems such as a lack of time and energy to proceed with the development. The final charts were slow in rendering data and couldn’t utilize CPU and memory resources efficiently.

We are so lucky that we found LightningChart last year! Now our project implementation goes very smoothly with LightningChart which can present massive data while demonstrating high performance. Arction’s excellent customer service, especially Chinese support service, helped us solve all the technical problems in time. We are very thankful for Arction’s product and its support service, as our NVH system can be successfully completed.”

“After the evaluation of different open source and commercial charting libraries for WPF, LightningChart was the only one truly GPU accelerated, optimized for real-time rendering. All the other charts evaluated use CPU for rendering, which performance can’t compete with GPU accelerated LightningChart and meet the complex business requirements. We choose LightningChart because it’s far ahead of all WPF chart controls with tests I made. Even though presenting 1 billion data points real-time, the charts present so easily and smoothly. My computer’s CPU is left almost idle for other tasks. I don’t need to do any extra work to compensate for deficiencies of the control. This greatly reduces the difficulty of the implementation and highly improves the speed of the program”.

“We utilize WPF as our UI framework to improve the developers’ efficiency. We used other solution which was opensource, but there was some problem in the process of the project, for example, the performance was quite poor, that library didn’t support reverse coordinate and so on. After that, we tried LightningChart and one of its alternatives on the market. We discovered that only LightningChart provides the Logarithmic coordinates, reverse coordinate, and other features which we desired. Also, LightningChart can represent billion of data points at the same time. Therefore, we decided to purchase LightningChart”

“Products developed with LightningChart are highly effective and exceed our customers’ expectations. Compared to other charting components, LightningChart shows significant advantages when presenting a huge amount of data. It allows to visualize and analyses data in a more intuitive way.”

“My project was looking to retire our ‘in house’ graphing package, and look for a 3rd party product to use instead. After weeks of research, no one came close to Arction’s graphing package. Its speed and feature set where unparalleled of the almost 12 packages I tried. I’ve been developing with them for two years now, and they have a great support forum, and address emails immediately. I recommend them, its a great product.”

“As the name suggests LightningChart is lightning fast when it comes to rendering large amounts of data. To add to it, behind this excellent product is a very helpful team who are experts in data visualization. The product is highly customizable and already caters to a vast number of requirements which a user may need. But when there is a specific user need, LightningChart team has built it in for us. It’s has been a great experience for us working with them.”

“We are really satisfied with LightnintChart’s performance. Besides its lightning-fast speed, we are amazed about the high efficiency of the Curve charts. What is also worth to mention is Arction’s technical support – very responsive, fast and patient. The whole team has high professional knowledge and skills, I am so glad about the decision to choose LightningChart”

“My project requires representation of 240 XY graphs, and on each chart at least 144000 points need to be plotted. In the beginning, I had some speed issues during the development of my project because other software I tested could not provide such big data rendering. LC is exactly what I need. When I was still evaluating LC, I found that it didn’t get stuck at all even when reading huge amount of data. GPU acceleration is brilliant!

I think the biggest advantage of Arction is the core technology, billions of points can run smoothly, this is the reason why I chose LC. I had tired other products, but their rendering speed didn’t meet my expectation when displaying hundreds of data points.

I mainly use XY feature in my project, and I hope that in the near future, I could also try LightningChart’s 3D feature. “
