Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visio

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.
  • charts and diagrams
  • linking items between sheets
  • managing data
  • customizable
  • sometimes it crashes
  • more sketching features
  • rotating shapes is cumbersome
  • increases productivity
  • faster to access data
  • easier to track jobs
there is not many options for drawing building and security controls. The major software for drawing creation is AutoCAD. It is good at drawing but it is cumbersome when dealing with BOM's and is not able to link items from one sheet to another. We needed another solution to create drawing and diagrams that took much of the manual data entry away.

Do you think Microsoft Visio delivers good value for the price?

It is a pretty versatile tool especially for drawing creation which is how we use it. It could also work well for organizing and presenting data. It has a better interface and more options that excel. We are able to add on and make custom stencils, and templates for our business.
