Overall Satisfaction

I used google's organization chart for the director level department as well as for a few reports that span departments.
  • The charts are very intuitive and easy to integrate into various different technologies.
  • The API is customizable to meet most needs.
  • OrgChart does not directly work well with large volumes of data. New users would find it hard to fit the data in the webpage when they build.
  • The option to choose between horizontal and vertical alignment should be provided at all levels in the chart and not just the chart as a whole.
  • Increased employee efficiency.
  • Increased understanding of data to improve processes.
I use google charts as my first choice if it involves client side presentation. For some server side implementation the built in ASP.NET charts are the best. I use them alternatively. That said,I am yet to come across a "one size fits all" experience in charts.
Ease of use. If I need to come up with a quick chart to present on my page, Google charts would be my go to place.
How big is your data? Some of the charts are perfect for any amount of data while some have their limitations with presentation.
