The Best Solution to Simplify Complex Professional Diagrams and Charts

By Rose Sincro

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014

I find the Visio Professional 2013 as the best solution to simplifying diagrams and charts. For professionals, it is the most convenient way to prepare diagrams and charts for sales and management presentations, IT networking, organizational charting, and team collaboration tasks. It provides ways to make all these work quickly, easily, and comprehensively.

Aside from the usual shapes and styles, Visio Professional 2013 includes updated templates and quick wizards to help you create your diagrams. Add vibrant colors, icons, and different styles to your charts and diagrams with more than 60 templates it has. Most importantly however, you diagrams are more interactive because you can link data in them to their sources. Now it is easier to track your references for valid information.

The best part about Visio Professional is its collaboration tools. Now it provides little room for error as you share diagrams with other team members at work. You will be able to work with them simultaneously at a single diagram, so you see each other’s changes, contributions, comments, and suggestions.

Pros

  • Apply quick fixes using template wizards
  • Link diagram data to its sources

Cons

  • Requires technical know-how of certain Microsoft apps
