There's not competition to Visio

I regret not having used this software before. Just like many, I thought this to be expensive. But an hour with the software proved how much time would've been saved had I chose this earlier. Visio offers one of the cleanest interfaces available, and it's a pleasure to work with this software. The rich template library will help anyone get a quick start in any project.

PROS

Visio provides us with an unbelievably smooth user experience when it comes preparing any kind of flow chart, mind map, hierarchy, process diagram, and anything else you could thing of! Also, you get to export your work in pretty much every usable format available. There's almost zero learning curve with this one if you're familiar with basic MS software packages. I can't ever see myself seeking an alternative to this.

CONS

There's nothing to dislike! Anyone who might think that this is expensive will find that this is worth it after the very first use.

Reasons for switching to Visio

First, I only gave a try to see if there's anything different compared to the alternative. But upon finding how great the experience was, I got rid of all the alternatives.

A great product to visualize process, organizations and information.

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.

Visio is my tool for Network Diagram

PROS

With Visio I'm able to import icons from many vendors and improve the quality of my network diagrams, I think that stencil are one of the thing that is valuable about Visio you can share it with the community to build in base of your solution or Idea.

CONS

Create objects like lines is painful, I would request a way to get straight lines without compromise your actual draw, when you move a straight line you move completely the join point.
