By Christine Diaz

On Friday, May 9, 2014

Microsoft Office Visio Pro is a potent diagramming program loaded with built-in stencils. It helps me to simplify difficult sequences through simple, easy to comprehend diagrams. I also like how I can quickly make some changes on the diagrams that I have created.

There are unusual tools in this software that can make your outline process manageable. It helps simplify organization chart with the wizard function. This wizard tool helps you to generate the flowcharts and diagrams in an appropriate way following the steps guided by the application. In this method, you can create custom flowcharts swiftly without any difficulty.

In spite of lacking few convenient tools, Visio Pro 2013 remains the top candidate and best choice in flowchart software. This software has always been fine, but this version is very polished. Easy enough for a newbie and complex enough for experienced pros, with a number of exceptional tools, Visio is your best pick for creating flowcharts. This software is a must have.

Pros

The easy way to Create and Share Professional Versatile Diagrams

By Ivy Paloma

On Thursday, April 10, 2014

For many years, I have been using Microsoft Office Visio for work related projects. I can say that it is one of the great tools to make amazing diagrams. One of the key features that I find beneficial is being able to readily use the tools that I access all the time. Other enhancements that were added include new stencils, improved effects, themes and additional shapes.

When working as a team, you can easily manage the task at hand because of the tools incorporated in this new version. I can immediately give and receive feedback from any members of the group through the reviewer comments. Each of the team can provide information needed for the progress of the project. It will make the work done in the least amount of time.

I also recently found this tool called SharePoint that helped me share my work with people who do not have Visio installed in their PC. They can just view the diagrams through the web browser. My diagrams look professionally done when created with Microsoft Office Visio. If you want to check out this program, make sure that you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8 as your operating system.

Pros

  • It has a complete chart edition
  • Provides an impressive platform for custom drawing solutions

Cons

  • Lots of tools to learn
