Built for Teams

Perfect for allowing employees to track their paid time off and sick days. Useful for providing job summaries, explanation of benefits. We don't use it for tracking compensation, but it could be used for that purpose. We also post job announcements on the platform which is useful for me to see what kinds of jobs we are hiring for.

Ease of use, it has many stencils supporting system architecture and IDEF system behavior diagrams. I have also utilized it as a system conops design tool. Excellent flexibility. Powerful program for drawing plans and structural charts, is easy to use and contains a wide range of design tools that facilitates the development of flow charts for users with little experience

Pros

Built for Teams

  • Managing PTO (sick and vacation)
  • Tracking firm demographic information
  • Ensuring that we have plenty of staff in the office each day
  • Employees get easy to use access to all of their time off data

Microsoft Visio

  • The templates for basic flowcharting are simple to use and cover most of the basic functions and touch points in a diagram.
  • The variety of included icons and connectors means it's very easy to create floor plans and/or network diagrams.
  • The ease at which you can customise connectors with different colours/thickness makes it very effective in overall presentation of a diagram.

Cons

Built for Teams

  • Reporting can be more robust.
  • More user control and real-time communication via the app would be helpful.
  • A better online calendar layout could be more efficient, but the current one is sufficient as well.

  • The shapes library can be a little daunting if you're unfamiliar. Unless you know what you're looking for and where to find it, you can spend a lot of time looking for a particular shape or icon. But once you find it, you can add it to your shapes menu for easy access.
  • You can also spend a lot of time selecting your defaults for shapes, arrows, font size, etc. But like the shapes library, once you get it down, it's locked in.
  • Be prepared to spend a few hours playing with Visio before figuring out all the nuances. But if you're a beginner and need to create a process flow or diagram, you can do it very quickly without a lot of effort or training. The fun stuff takes a little longer to master.

I LOVE Visio for project workflow documentation. Customers come to us to develop workflows for them and integrate systems. Visio makes it easy to understand and document customer needs as well as highlight web service touchpoints and integration areas.

Some things that I think should be easy to do are not, at least not for a beginner user. I'm sure it's easy once you get the hang of it but the two main issues I have with Visio are the connecting of different states and searching for graphics/icons after you have chosen a starting template.

Overall, I feel that Microsoft's support is weak. They are now such a behemoth that their model of putting documentation online for their users to sift through is totally outgrown. Given the amount of money you pay for these licenses, Microsoft should provide easy one-on-one support for their products via email or chat. The idea of paying their rates for support incidents is ridiculous. If you have an enormous amount of time on your hands, use their support websites and you will eventually find a solution most of the time.

Alternatives Considered

Built for Teams

not sure this isn't part of my role we used to use Insperity premiere for booking vacation since that’s our hr/payroll system but apparently built is better for this. I’m not sure why we switched but it is fairly easy to use and customize. Insperity was harder to access.

Other products that we have tried (like Google Drawings and LucidChart) did not offer the same flexibility and ease of use that we have found in Microsoft Visio. While they may offer better collaborative features, they were lacking in some of the basic interface and shape features that Visio makes easy.

Return on Investment

Built for Teams

  • It makes tracking PTO super easy
  • We replaced a very expensive and clunky custom SharePoint intranet with an extremely cost-effect Built For Teams service.
  • It is super easy to maintain, leaving me free to tackle bigger issues in the organization
Doug Sievers | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Visio

  • Microsoft Visio helps improve communication which ensures increased alignment. This helps reduce costly rework on projects.
  • Microsoft Visio is expensive to license the whole organization, so it takes some time to ensure your diagram is in a good format for publishing and there are only so many people who can edit the Visio files.
