5. Provides better support than Microsoft Visio

Your Edraw Max program is outstanding! 1.Fully uses the Windows XP user interface. It looks very nice! 2.Fast and small! 3.Has the right features! 4.Priced right. I hope you keep the promotional price. Home users and students cannot afford software like Visio.
Thank you for a simple-to-use drawing program! I am an engineer and have been beaten to death by Visio. With Edraw Max, I was able to finish a report on time and got praise from my boss for the illustrations.
Thanks you for your support. I can't tell you how often I marvel at the amount of work and skill that must have gone into this product. It's very impressive piece of programming.
Great value for the money! If flowcharting are the only thing you plan to use it for, Visio might be a bit of overkill. If you want to be using it for other things too though it would be better value for money. Visio is too expensive for my taste, and I have found a good flowcharting software. I just wanted to write to say Edraw Max is great value for its money! It is very easy to use! Cathy
It was similar enough to Visio, and other drawing programs I had used before, that it fit my working habits very well," he said. "I read a few of the tutorials in the beginning, and I was on my way.
With Edraw, I can quickly visualize a complex workflow process in a way that tells both the end-user, the hospital staff, and the system vendor how the planned system should operate.
I think I could do the same projects with Visio, but it would definitely take a lot more time and effort. Time is money, and with Edraw I am able to achieve more in less time. When I was running Visio on my computer, everything worked very slowly. with Edraw, I can use several other programs simultaneously, without problems. There is just no need to pay for Visio when you can get Edraw for a lot less, and still do everything you need to do, Edraw gets the job done!
