The Data Objects are hyperlinked to the Standard Operating Procedures, Letters, and Forms.I enjoy the fact that I can go into detail with Visio. In shared communications, I can inspect for any fault in my processes.It is easy to learn and implement.Putting details into the process flow and being able to link other objects into the diagrams are very helpful features.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 most valuable feature is the ability to draw models quickly.The diagramming and swimlane features allow for separating business functions.We can easily add templates to SharePoint for collaboration.

Cons
It definitely needs help to improve the visual aspect of the solution.There are other solutions out there that have a better user interface.More visualization techniques and ways to report the data might be helpful.

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.Transferring data was one of the issues that I expected Visio to have resolved. I use the older version.It does not integrate well with other solutions.I would like to be able to present diagrams in multiple ways, such as a Swimlane diagram.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.I would like to see traceability. It doesn't have it. You cannot find one object amongst several sheets of Visio diagrams.It could use easier custom icon sets.
