Traditional “graphics software” often take a lot of time to learn and require both drawing and formatting skills. The huge time investment, countless revisions, and unsatisfactory end
result often make the whole effort just not worth it. SmartDraw is different. As the world’s first visual processor, SmartDraw makes it fast and easy for anyone to create professionally-formatted visuals of any kind—including flowcharts, organization charts, floor plans, network diagrams, mind maps, Gantt Charts, timelines, sales territory maps, and much, much more.

Whether you need to quickly create a diagram, or manage a project, you can jump start the process with one of SmartDraw's professionally-designed templates, or customize your own.

SmartDraw is the world’s first visual processor. In the same way that a word processor automatically formats documents, SmartDraw automatically formats your visuals as you create them, making it possible for anyone to create professional-quality visuals of all kinds in minutes.

SmartDraw includes hundreds of professionally-designed templates for more than 70 types of visual, including flowcharts, mind maps, project time lines, organization charts, colorful 3D graphs, floor plans, country maps, network diagrams, landscape plans, and more.

Visuals are scientifically proven to be up to 6 times more effective than text alone in communicating ideas, data, information, processes, plans, projects and more.

Improved communication leads directly to increased sales, lower costs, productivity gains, and reduced errors that all add up to significant business performance enhancement.

Less than 3% of all business communication uses visuals, because they think it is time consuming and difficult to create. SmartDraw's automatic formatting enables anyone to create presentation-quality visuals quickly and easily in real-time.

Love the mind mapping feature!

A Wong29th of December, 2011 18:24

I've been using SmartDraw for about two months as a tool to help manage my projects. What I love about SmartDraw is the Mind Mapping feature, which allows me to create tasks in a visually friendly way that mimics brainstorming. It's been very helpful to me when starting out a project. I also really like the way we can add owners to each task in the same view. And the best part is, the information will get transferred to a Gantt chart or a timeline with the click of a button. Once you've filled in the details, you can push the information to a powerpoint slide to share with key stakeholders, again, with just a click of a button. There are many more features within SmartDraw that I am intrigued about but haven't had the opportunity to explore yet. I plan on playing with SmartDraw more once my current projects slow down.
