Feature-filled chart maker

Create custom organizational charts with this professional software.

OrgChart Professional is a feature-packed program that allows users to create impressive organizational charts. Because of the number of features it contains, it's not the most intuitive program we've used, but a bit of time spent with the Help file will allow users to master the program's many functions.

The interface is a bit cluttered and can be overwhelming at first, with lots of menus and buttons everywhere. Although it's possible to create an organizational chart just by fooling around with the program, beginners should really start with the Help file, a 282-page PDF that contains plenty of detailed tutorials and screenshots. Within 15 minutes you'll be creating attractive 3D charts and learning about the program's features at the same time. We very much enjoyed the fact that so much of the chart creation process simply involves dragging and dropping various components; although there are many advanced features, the program's interface makes it quite simple to perform the basics. OrgChart Professional delivers everything you'd expect from such a program in terms of features. Users can easily customize the appearance of both the chart components and background. A variety of shapes, components, and alignment options make it possible to create charts representative of any organization, no matter how complex. The program allows users to import and export data in a variety of formats; we especially liked that the program could create interactive Flash versions of the charts. Overall, we were quite impressed with the program's capabilities.

OrgChart Professional is free to try, but the trial version limits users to 30 boxes. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
