Organisation charts represent the interrelationships among people, operations, functions, and activities in an organisation.
Compared with Visio, organisational charts created with OrgChart are done more quickly and have many more options for formatting, arrangements, and data intelligence. With OrgChart you can easily see that charts match the organisation’s data and there is no need to wonder if you have forgotten to add a person to the chart, or if you have put them in the wrong place. That’s because the view of the chart and the view of the organisational are continuously in view and synchronized. Larger charts are automatically paginated into interactive sub-charts, allowing you to drill up or drill down throughout the organisation. And if you need to, all people can be shown on one page so you can print on a large plotter output. OrgChart will output to PowerPoint, and interactive Flash web site, and even Visio.
Hierarchical calculations are particularly easy to do in OrgChart, which makes it an ideal tool for succession planning and company re-organisations. And with the audit and compare tools you can see exactly what has changed (financial impacts, reporting relationships, headcount, etc.) between different org chart scenarios.
Visio has been designed as an all-purpose diagramming package, whereas OrgChart is solely dedicated to organisational charting and publishing.
