You can even keep and use all of your existing Visio® stencils, even custom made stencils. See why SmartDraw's Visio® import is best in class.
Like Visio®, SmartDraw checks all of the boxes expected of an enterprise-quality diagramming app, while also giving you all the modern features of a full-featured online solution. That means you'll get powerful diagramming tools, including scaled drawing for CAD and engineering, shape data, and more - all online. Plus, you'll get full integration to other tools including Atlassian's Confluence and Jira, Trello, Google Workspace, Azure, AWS, and more. You can build diagrams from data and collaborate with your team.
Unlike other Visio alternatives, SmartDraw also allows you to use third party storage. If you're already used to saving files on OneDrive®, SharePoint®, you can continue to do so with SmartDraw. In addition, you can also connect to other popular third-party storage solutions like Google Drive™. And SmartDraw will use the existing folders and permissions you have already set up. It fits like a hand in a glove!
SmartDraw is much lower in cost than Visio®. In fact, Visio® users typically pay about ten times more than SmartDraw for 50 users or more.
SmartDraw is an excellent alternative to Visio®. It is much less expensive, has more powerful online features and integrations, and has tools to make switching easy.
