We use it for modeling in particular cases: organizational structure, business procedures, information and IT infrastructure models. Also, we often use this software product to create layouts of software interfaces for in-house development of corporate tools. We actively use the tools of collective development and review of models.

We use Microsoft Visio for diagrams. We did not have good diagrams of our networks, processes and floors [so] Microsoft Visio was an excellent solution [for us]. [It] comes with a number of great templates that one can use for their networks, data/process flows, and floor plans. Microsoft Visio [is also] visually appealing and easily addressed our needs. We [are] currently using Microsoft Visio for our project management flow processes [as well].

MS Visio is a powerful program. I have been using Visio for a long time as it is extremely easy to use and comes with a large number of visual elements. Additionally, it provides a grid layout to draw objects with ease of mind.

We are using Visio to draw process diagrams and database information flow. The process flows can be also drawn by using Excel, Word, or Powerpoint. However, Visio speeds things up. The diagrams are easy to draw with predefined library items. The chart elements can be auto arranged. Furthermore, the library of icons is big enough so that users do not need to google down icons.

We have been using Microsoft Visio for requirement use cases, workflow diagrams, application product specifications, and architecture diagrams. Visio is used across the organization as a recommended tool for creating diagrams. Ready-to-use shapes and templates are not only very helpful and save lots of time but also very easy to understand for both technical and non-technical audiences.

We use Microsoft Visio for a multitude of tasks across the whole business. we create IT System architecture diagrams for sales and clients projects, office layouts, process planning, mind maps, all sorts. I like its flexibility and the number of templates and "stock" pictures etc. available.

We currently use this software in the engineering department to replace AutoCAD in all new jobs. it has flexibility and the ability to use 3rd party software so that we can create custom templates. It also allows us to compile many things automatically like BOM's instead of manual data entry like with AutoCAD.

Microsoft Visio is used across my organization for documenting processes. Specifically in my audit department, Visio is used to document workflows and processes of clients. Using Visio helps us to communicate our understanding of processes to our clients in a visual manner, and guides narrative reporting. Visio provides clarity and the ability to parse out many details, from which team is completing a process step, to controls identified in the process, to specific notes and details about certain steps.

Currently, it is used for the creation of org charts, network diagrams, software project diagrams, etc. The ability to import other manufacturer's design and equipment detail for inclusion in our drawings makes this software valuable. We are able to re-use diagrams to implement upgrades to equipment and find Visio valuable for keeping track of inventory on this equipment.

Microsoft Visio was used before we switched to Lucidchart for mapping and flow creations. It is used primarily to easily create flowcharts and tracking progress. It comes as a part of the Microsoft suite, which is nice. It is easy to use for the most part and suitable for basic operations and templates. The templates available make it a great beginner product.

Microsoft Visio enables us to create complicated diagrams in an easy way. It offers a wide variety of built-in shapes, objects, and stencils. In our organization whole departments are using Visio especially to create process design documents.

Microsoft Visio is used to create process maps in my organization. It is used in whole organization, across pretty much all engineering and business departments. I used it during analyzing the production process, carrying out change analysis by inspecting a before-after situation. It is frequently used in production process mapping but it is also used in business process mapping, too. That shows how business is carried out across various departments. This becomes a must when an organization is huge.

Microsoft Visio is used by individual users throughout the organization; it is not widely used but can be requested by users anywhere in the organization. Microsoft Visio is used to document processes or diagrams of networks, solutions, and more. Visio enables efficient and effective documentation of these processes and diagrams, improving overall documentation and communication within the organization. This helps avoid issues and cost of poor quality.

Microsoft Visio is very well suited for creating flowcharts, network diagrams, site plans, & site surveys. Microsoft Visio is also excellent for IT diagrams on the whole, server diagrams, data center architecture, etc. It is an excellent tool for network documentation!

Microsoft Visio is being used at Duquesne Light Company as our process flow mapping tool. It is used to illustrate processes, dependencies, data flow, network diagrams, etc., in our organization. I personally use it more for process flows when designing new solutions for my internal customers. It allows users a way to visually depict how processes flow.

Currently being used by specific individuals and teams based on their responsibilities but generally by those required to design high-level diagrams and schematics for projects. As a product it significantly simplifies the process in creating professional diagrams/process flows and architectural flows for upcoming and current projects.

At our company, we use this within the product development group (part of the technology team). We use Visio to produce various swimlane type diagrams, workflows and flow charts, which in turn are presented to management and business teams, as well as used to generate user stories for development. We have also used Visio for org charts.

Visio is used quite a bit by our company. We use it mainly to describe workflows and Diagrams, which in the I.T. environment is a critical tool when explaining workflows for programs, department processes and potential changes to these processes. The tool helps me quite a bit when explaining these processes to non-I.T. employees.

My entire organization adopted Microsoft Visio as a part of our shift to using the new suite of Office 365 applications exclusively. Microsoft Viso has proven to be an excellent tool to create everything from basic diagrams, timelines and organizational charts to advanced cross-functional flow diagrams, Gantt charts and brainstorming diagrams that require detailed layouts.

We use Visio to easily and intuitively create flowcharts, diagrams, org charts, and more, using modern shapes and templates with the familiar Office experience. We are a process oriented company so flowcharts are a great way for us to communicate to others the steps involved in each process and which part of the process pertains to them.

We are using it within our own company when we're developing business processes for our clients. It helps the organization to understand how their business processes flows from start to end and who in the organization is involved in executing every step in the process. It is an easier way for the client to see how their process flows because it is visual.

We use Visio to make block diagrams for various project plans. Specifically, I have used it for making AV diagrams to show stakeholders what it will take in order to make a conference room perform the tasks asked by them. The complexity levels within Visio can be helpful in updating floorplans on occasion as well, but I would prefer making something in Bluebeam for that specifically.
