Microsoft Visio is a most useful and versatile diagramming application that has the ability to include information with every single item. Although Microsoft Visio is inexpensive, and widespread, there are, unbelievably, still some people who need to see Visio documents but do not have the actual application available.
bVisual have released pptXporter for those companies that need to view Visio files in PowerPoint format, and many companies save Visio files in Adobe PDF format. Both of these methodologies are fine if only simple graphics are required. However, Visio is capable of far more than just graphics because it can integrate information in a unique and compelling manner, turning each element into treasure trove of data.
-Stand alone application for viewing Visio files without Visio
-Advanced search of shape data (custom properties)
-Create lists of data from diagrams and export to other applications
-Copy or print of any part of a diagram simply
