Posted by James Freeman | 04/16/2021
The best Visio alternative with more advanced functions and at a lower price. The professional electrical engineering drawing software is suitable for both experts and beginners with abundant shapes and templates.

Why Do You Need Visio Alternative

Are you looking for the Visio Replacement? Well, Visio comes in three variants with the Standard one priced at $299, and the Premium one costs a hefty price tag of $999. It is too costly for small businesses. However, individual users sometimes don't need to create sophisticated diagrams, so they tend to find a budget alternative instead of MS Visio.

If you are a MacOS user, it is hard for you to use MS Visio to draw different diagrams. Therefore, you have to find a Visio like software on Mac, which happens to Linux users, too.

It can be seen from above that price and compatibility are two main reasons why you need a better alternative to Microsoft Visio.

Here is a perfect option to replace Visio - EdrawMax. It offers more diagramming solutions with greater functionality at a lower cost, benefiting more users.
