SmartDraw.com Changes the Face of Graphics Software – Now Ordinary Computer Users Can Create Professional-Quality Business Graphics In Minutes



San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 1, 2006

SmartDraw.com, creator of SmartDraw®, the world's most popular business graphics software, today announced the release of SmartDraw 2007. With SmartDraw, anyone can create professional-quality business graphics such as flowcharts, org charts, Gantt charts, timelines, floor plans and more in minutes. Unlike other graphics programs that cater to technical people, SmartDraw is designed for ordinary computer users allowing them to become instantly productive.

SmartDraw 2007 changes the face of graphics software with an all-new intuitive interface and revolutionary SmartTemplateâ„¢ technology. The new design for SmartDraw 2007 is the result of extensive user testing and 12 years of feedback from the millions of SmartDraw users. "I consider SmartDraw 2007 a breakthrough release that makes creating business graphics as easy as typing a letter with a word processor," states SmartDraw.com chief executive and founder Paul Stannard.

"For example, to create an attractive and effective flowchart, users must know which shapes and symbols to use, what they mean, and how they fit together. They also need to apply good graphic design principles, and then be able to produce it. Most people don't even know where to start. That's why we developed SmartTemplates," stated Stannard.

SmartDraw has developed hundreds of SmartTemplates for every type of business graphic. For example, open a "timeline" SmartTemplate, and the correct symbols, settings, color schemes, toolbar and help necessary to create the timeline are automatically displayed. In addition, SmartDraw users can browse or search a library of more than 20,000 symbols and examples, and export into Word, WordPerfect, PowerPoint and Excel with a single click.

The price for a single-user version of SmartDraw 2007 is $ 297, and the Company offers a variety of licensing options and programs for organizations of all sizes. A free trial is available at: www.smartdraw.com and includes both online and telephone technical support.
