Particularly helpful to an organization that has Windows people who are staunch Visio users and Mac people who are die-hard OmniGraffle or Sketch users.

It's very easy to collaborate on the same file with team members and create simple concepts and flowcharts that you can use in the development process. It is also very handy for creating graphs and tables for presentations. Since this is a web application, we can use it anywhere, anytime and on any device; which provides great flexibility and accessibility. It also offers the functionality to save your work as you develop it, which is very helpful.

Pros

Cacoo

  • Creative resource for various visual support items
  • The free version is robust and nice to staff who have not used it before to get to know the product
  • Support has been helpful when needed

  • Draw.io offers a lot of shapes and customizability of how the diagrams are laid out. We've been able to create a lot of different things with it, and have barely scratched the surface of the sorts of things that we could do.
  • Draw.io is fairly intuitive in the way that you draw shapes and connect shapes together, I was able to figure it out without a tutorial.
  • Draw.io is fast and performant for me compared with some of the alternatives.

Cons

Cacoo

  • Keyboard only functionality is just ok. There are some shortcuts but momentum can be killed if I have to constantly go back to a mouse
  • Import/export support for Visio
  • Import/export support for Omnigraffle and Sketch

  • It's not completely robust like Visio is. I'm limited in the type and quantity of shapes I can use. But hey, it's free. And it works great.
  • Creating a swimlane process flow to show how different actors work together to complete a process was a little tough to figure out at first. But you can just look up quick "how to" instructions (hint - swimlanes are called containers, and you have to rotate them so they're horizontal rather than vertical - kind of a pain).
  • Adding special shapes and other graphics can slow down the speed of the application. However, I just try to keep it simple. If you're looking for something more robust, you'll probably be a little disappointed with draw.io.

The support for draw.io is pretty decent, considering it is a free website. I had a question one time when I was trying to do something, so I sent an email to their support email and got a response fairly quickly with an answer to my question. They also have some excellent support tools on their support website for helping you get more familiar with their program, and I found that very helpful.

We have found the free version to be more user-friendly and easier to train on than others. The full version is preferred by many of our creative team and designers as they have familiarity. It has more options and looks "prettier' and more professional when shared with a client.

Draw.io is totally free and it has most of the features a commercial product like Visio would have, so I think it is a go-to. It has good integration with Google Drive and it can export to a variety of files. You are not constrained by some commercial proprietary file format. It can be used in a browser on any device or downloaded as a desktop app.

Return on Investment

Cacoo

  • I was able to easily collaborate on flow charts with Windows and Mac users.
  • I was able to co-author flowcharts in real-time during a conference call.
  • I was able to send a share link to the interactive chart as well as to an image without having to copy/save it some other cloud storage system.

  • Our organization had a positive ROI migrating to Draw.io with simple cost savings over other products. We saved about 35% on our yearly "workflow, network diagram" software.
  • Migration from Gliffy was easy, but did come with some administrative overhead. Our IT team needed to go back through and check most diagrams for errors.
  • Our office saves a substantial amount of administrative overhead utilizing some of the templates provided within Draw.io.
