A More Intuitive Planning Tool for Constructing Diagrams and Flowcharts

By Reinalei Jamir

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

The Microsoft Office Visio Pro is an effective diagramming software with newly updated stencils. It assists me in creating diagrams and flowcharts more intuitively. This software helps me to simplify complicated information through plain, easy to figure out charts. There are also remarkable tools in this software that can generate your outline process conveniently.

This software also improved its support for group teamwork, including the capability for various users like me to operate on a particular chart at the same time, and the capacity to connect diagrams to data. With Visio Pro, you can construct a document, a business process, organizational chart or even draw a floor plan.

Despite having flaws on some of its tools, Visio Pro 2013 for me remains the top contender and a fine pick in diagram and flowchart application. This software has always been all right, but this version is much refined. If you are looking for a software for design planning documentation, then this is the one you need. It is a very creative tool for you.

Pros

  • It enhances support for team cooperation
  • Additional stencils for business diagrams

Cons

  • Some tools might be confusing
