SmartDraw is the New Standard
for Diagramming

Here are Ten Reasons Why

SmartDraw is Leading the Way to the Future

Microsoft Visio® has been the standard app for diagramming for over twenty years, but does not appear to be on a path to sustain this. Microsoft only moved Visio® to the browser recently in an extremely limited form and SmartDraw remains the only powerful alternative for anyone needing a full-featured diagramming solution on a Mac, PC, or any other device.

SmartDraw is Fully Compatible with the Old Standard

To replace an old standard, the new standard needs to make the transition easy. SmartDraw can both import and export diagrams and stencils in Visio format (VSD and VSDX) with the best results in the industry.

SmartDraw Works Anywhere

SmartDraw is the only diagramming solution that you can install behind a firewall on a Windows desktop and also run on a Mac and online with all of the third party integrations you'd expect.

And better yet, the powerful online version is fully integrated and compatible with the Windows version. You can move seamlessly between them.

SmartDraw allows you to draw and print architectural and engineering diagrams to scale. SmartDraw even provides an AutoCAD-like annotation layer that automatically resizes to match a diagram. Simple online-only apps don't do this at all.
