    "Orgweaver seems like a simple to use tool that you can use to create org charts, which might be helpful on a large project where you must be educated on the ins and outs of business clients. If an account can be shared among a group, I feel that it would be invaluable."

    "I've created hundreds of organizational charts in my working career. The trick isn't finding software that'll make them. That's easy. The trick is finding software that makes them easily and makes them pretty. Org Chart Creator Pro from Edraw Max really takes the cake there. This software is the difference between an unappealing chart that took 2 hours to create and a pleasant chart that took 20 minutes."
