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

  • Easy to create flowcharts and diagrams
  • Ability to link diagrams to data

Cons

  • Ability to reverse engineer database has been removed
