Overall Satisfaction with Cacoo

I use Cacoo for Marketing process flow charts, mind mapping, and decision trees.
  • Flow charts with standard icons or custom visuals
  • Conceptual visualizations for presentations.
  • Drag and drop Gantt charts
  • Org charts
  • Wireframes for web development
  • 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
  • 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.
Cacoo is web-based and OS independent. OmniGraffle is a local install and mac only. Microsoft Visio is a desktop app also and Windows only. Two strikes for me, as I use between 2-4 different computers daily where I expect my applications to be always up-to-date and files synchronized.
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.

Using Cacoo

1 - I know I use it in marketing but I don't believe we've settled on a standard as a company.
