"Without a doubt our best purchase was SmartDraw. Rarely have I seen such an impact with the deployment of software to end users. Adoption was immediate and increased the overall quality of our communications, process development and planning. Productivity was also improved as end users finally had a tool that put compelling, professional-quality visuals at their fingertups.

Not only is the product terrific, but from consulting, enterprise installation and training to end user support, the team at SmartDraw has been exceptional. I highly recommend SmartDraw."
