ConceptDraw DIAGRAM Comparison with
Omnigraffle Professional and MS Visio

Benefits of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM versus Omnigraffle and MS Visio.

In the process of conducting business, sometimes words alone do not have the ability to describe a situation, state, or process with enough accuracy to guarantee successful communication to stakeholders, team members, and other assorted individuals. To convey a faultless understanding to others it is often necessary to include graphics and diagrams to support the meaning conveyed. The combination of words and graphics associated with the text is a powerful cohesive means of communication that removes participant doubt and improves clarity. The end result is to accelerate business. Business today is conducted at an incredible rate. The speed of business has increased for organizations of every size and for all participants.

With Dynamic presentations, you can display your presentation on a secondary monitor or projector, while your main monitor is left open for you to make edits as you move through the presentation. This allows you the unique ability to collaborate with team members in a meeting setting or quickly respond to feedback from your audience.

Any diagram or drawing you make in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM can be a dynamic presentation — everything from flowcharts and block diagrams to network diagrams and wiring schematics.

All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats).
