SmartDraw is Better Than Visio®
For about half the cost of Visio®, you can outfit your entire organization with a SmartDraw site license. Low cost and easy administration are only two of the reasons to switch to SmartDraw. There are many more including:
SmartDraw is easier to use than Visio® and just as powerful.
SmartDraw imports Visio® files. You can import any Visio® file and fully edit it in SmartDraw.
See this in action.
SmartDraw is multiplatform. It can be used on mobile and Mac platforms as well as Windows. With SmartDraw's Cloud component you can view and edit diagrams on any device, and SmartDraw for Windows is fully integrated with SmartDraw Cloud. As a site license administrator you can control Cloud access too.
You can share SmartDraw diagrams more easily. Diagrams you make in SmartDraw can be shared with anyone in their web browser, whether they have access to SmartDraw or not. Since you can import Visio® files, you can now also share your legacy Visio® files with anyone even if they don't own Visio®.
