Visio Review

It is stable and easy to set up


What is our primary use case?

I mostly use it for network diagrams. It is a standard solution for creating this kind of stuff.

What is most valuable?

It is stable. I have never experienced any issues.

What needs improvement?

It can be complex. If you don't know a little bit about it, it can get really confusing.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Visio off and on for around 15 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have around ten users from IT, engineering, and HR. HR uses it for flow charts or organization charts.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never used their technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

It has always been Visio. The first one I used was in 2003.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I haven't looked at the prices lately. We have an older copy, and it was a couple of hundred dollars for this software. That's a huge expense.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Visio an eight out of ten, and that's just because I don't know how to use it fully. I know it does a whole lot. It has plenty of training. I wish I had more time to actually get really good at it.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

2013
