Why SmartDraw is Better than ConceptDraw®

No other drawing software has as many templates and symbols included as SmartDraw. ConceptDraw® requires buying separate content packages to get symbols and shapes for your diagrams. Not SmartDraw. Once you own SmartDraw, you'll have access to over 4,500 templates and over 34,000 symbols for no extra charge. Plus, SmartDraw's online edition lets you access your drawing online from anywhere. Never feel like you're tied to your desktop again.
