Visio 2013 features a redesigned program to help its users create more intuitive diagrams. It includes fresh and updated stencils and shapes, and improved themes and effects. It has a coauthoring feature for easier teamwork. It makes your diagrams dynamic by linking real-time data to shapes. You can then share your work with others on browser-based SharePoint, a Visio Service.

MS Visio Professional 2013 includes all functions of Visio Standard 2013. Aside from the updated shapes, it also has modernized styles and templates. Modernized stencils are adapted for engineering and business diagrams. It also includes process diagrams that include Business Process Models, floor plans and maps, database and software diagrams, and network diagrams.

Team collaboration is also better as it includes the ability to allow several people to cooperate on one diagram simultaneously.
