Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This product fulfills ninety percent of our needs, and we're happy as users of it.""Another good feature is that the numbering of the shapes in iGrafx is much easier and more convenient, in comparison to what is found in Visio. So far I haven't found anything similar to what I have with iGrafx, in that regard.""Finding the right symbol and creating links, horizontal and vertical are the features I use.""Provides a valuable BPMN feature."

More iGrafx Pros »

"Putting details into the process flow and being able to link other objects into the diagrams are very helpful features.""It is easy to learn and implement.""I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.""Visio has improved our organization through an essential collaboration with the other Microsoft applications like SharePoint and Excel. So basically in the earlier days, what used to happen, a majority of the organization captured all the as-is process, the time and motion data in the form of Excel and then they used to create process diagrams using other freeware applications. Collaboration allows easy and convenient sharing with other stakeholders, that is really helpful with Visio.""The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.""I like to use Visio because it gives me a quick view of the things I had to put in a model for a company. I don't use it as an interface, though.""It keeps track of its connections as you move things around.""The most valuable features are process mapping and identifying responsibilities."

Cons
"It would be helpful to be able to do more analytics and generate reports on historical documents that have already been uploaded to the server.""Dragging and dropping shapes is not as user-friendly as in Visio. In Visio, it's very easy to work with shapes and in very few minutes you can plot a whole, multi swim-lane, cross-functional process.""In the next release, I would like to see more layers like three, four, and five. It might be possible but I haven't seen it yet.""The price could be more competitive."

More iGrafx Cons »

"I would like to be able to present diagrams in multiple ways, such as a Swimlane diagram.""It does not integrate well with other solutions.""Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.""The one particular thing which I would like to see improved is in comparison to other products in the market, and is still lacking in Visio, is publishing on a web application. For example, there is a freeware application business process modeling tool, Bizagi.""I would like to see included in the next release is the implementation of web publishing.""The Auto-Align has improved significantly from the previous release; however, it still jumbles the model if your process diagram has a fair degree of complexity.""Something that needs to improve, is the interface interaction with other tools.""System architecture could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"My company is trying to replace iGrafx because the license is a little bit expensive."

More iGrafx Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It has a lower price point than the competition.""The cost of the software is reasonably priced.""The price is reasonable for individual use but for an organization, the costs is high.""Our license for Visio is including with the Office 365 subscription.""Visio is about a $180 dollars to purchase. It is a one-time licensing fee.""The yearly cost is approximately $400 CAD ($300 USD).""There are some cheaper as well as free solutions."
