With Visio I've accomplished many projects that I should have done by hand & many days but Microsoft Visio made things easier as I get to finish my projects earlier, get quality maps in 3 dimensions & process flow diagrams. Architectural drawings and designs are so better with Visio and I recommend Microsoft Visio to anyone in diagram or vector graphic industry.

PROS

Microsoft Visio is great for building plans, making good mind maps and 3D maps. Everything comes in Top quality & no errors.

CONS

Some of the tools In the software need good internet connection for best experience as soon as possible.

To prepare a practical, flexible, easy to make, easy to understand flowchart or organizational chart the ultimate choice, in most of cases, will be Microsoft Visio, an innovative way to visualize a business process. Visio enables to learn about organizational setup, flow of documentation, and procedures alongwith cause and effect diagrams, the more important is that the diagram is self explanatory for presentation purpose.

PROS

Being member of rich and widely used family of Microsoft applications, it is effectively configured and integrated with excel, word, powerpoint, teams, sharepoint, onedrive, etc. Microsoft Visio enables users to generate a basic to complex diagram or hierarchal modeling. Visio has all necessary features that are required for graphical presentation of a flowchart or organization chart. Apart from built-in features, there are many templates that can be easily modified according to your requirements.

CONS

Visio is not easy for new user particularly using at mobile, if a new user has to provide links by using arrow keys then he/ she will experience it as a tricky task, it not intuitive as well. Visio does not generate link leading recipient of the link to view diagram at any browser. Visio does not allow arrangement of diagram elements automatically, cropping of image is not allowed, usually arrows do not connect properly. To group or ungroup is not easy task, sometimes auto arrange feature returns errors.

Reasons for switching to Visio

Visio offers more advanced diagramming tools.

PROS

The drag and drop feature is probably the only thing I like from this software.

CONS

Difficulty resizing and aligning content. Difficult to align the arrows.

Reason for choosing Visio

Because it was part of my Business Office licence and I don't want to pay for an additional software, but given the opportunity I would definitely switch to Nintex ProMapp

We have developed a series of structures, visual solutions and solutions for our procedures and business hierarchies.

PROS

This tool is very easy to use, many features are pretty intuitive, there are countless techniques and procedures, looks like it was built to modeling structures, you can easily export it to a PDF format, and there is a vast library of icons and elements.

CONS

The main problem with this tool is that the license can be expensive if you are a small company, you cannot share your work to be edited if the other part / customer does not have a Visio license, not included in the suite of Microsoft Office, if you have a very detail or heavy drawing it may crash, and there is no version for MacOs.

Reason for choosing Visio

We choose Visio because it presented an opportunity to solve our procedures and increase the value our planning department added to the organization.

Reasons for switching to Visio

Visio presented a better alternative that reduced the training time and the adapted well to our BPM.

PROS

Vibrant end to end workflow cahrting software taht aids in illustrating concepts and workflows to the specific targeted audience. The ability of teh software to organize subgroups differently and independently is a huge plus. I also love the fact that I can readily import diagrams and insert them in other documents hustle free.

CONS

While it is almost perfect, there is a need to develop Visio for Android to allow for a more seamless working experience when I am off my laptop and on my tablet during travels.

Reason for choosing Visio

Visio was definitely the cheaper option with a more comprehensive solution, and since we were already on the O365 plan, we chose to go this route.
