SmartDraw is a drawing application to design business graphics, diagrams and charts of all kinds. The program improves communication, organization, management and planning by drawing any processes. If you know Microsoft’s Visio, this program will be familiar to you. The application also has tutorials to help.

It includes many templates for different tasks, business and engineering areas. It also contains a big clip-art collection that complements any type of drawing. The interface works with drag and drop and easily adds or removes symbols. Free drawings and tables can be added to the diagrams independently of the type.

Users can choose from over 20 different categories to start creating a drawing; among which we can find: Basics, Flowcharts, Organization, Charts & Graphics, Project, and Timeline, Floor plans, Landscape, Web, Presentation, Software, Engineering and more.

This version has full Microsoft Office integration. That means that you can send your completed drawing directly to Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Plus it can now open new and old Visio files (.vsd) and new files(.vsdx) without losing connections or properties.

Actually, the application offers far more customization options than Visio; it even integrates with MS Sharepoint services. Ultimately, all the designs can be saved in a number of formats including JPEG, PDF, HTML and AutoCAD interchange.
