A solid diagramming tool from Microsoft
Microsoft Visio is now a portion of the Microsoft Office 2013 Suite.
Visio is a vector diagramming tool that will enable users to create things like flowcharts, floor plans, organizational charts and maps. It’s meant to make business professionals’ lives easier, and it seems to do well at its job.
In terms of how the program works, users can either start from a template or begin from scratch, working to create the document that would serve their organization best. Each element of templates is easy to modify, from the addition of extras to CAD drawing compatibility.
The program also includes a Diagram Check function to assess the produced document for potential areas of errors. This is perfect for helping a professional to perfect his/her design, and really adds to the program’s functionality.
One of the best things about this program is that it runs with an interactive guide in the background, available at a moment’s notice should the user suddenly need help. This means that even beginners can have an easy time producing an organizational document with Microsoft Visio.
Microsoft Visio is a valuable part of the Microsoft Office 2013 suite of tools, getting the job done with a good degree of ease.
