SmartDraw is the New Standard
for Diagramming

Here are Ten Reasons Why

The Old Standard, Visio, Appears to be a Dead-End

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 has moved its core Office® apps to Mac, mobile and the browser to preserve their place in a multi-platform future. This is not so with Visio. Microsoft Office's future seems to be leaving Visio behind.

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.

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.
