San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2008
SmartDraw.com today announced that North American Stainless, one of the Western hemisphere's leading stainless steel mills, has selected SmartDraw software to create org charts, process flows, and project schedules. North American Stainless, which has a state-of-the-art facility in Carroll County, Kentucky, will use SmartDraw in the company's finance, IS, commercial, technical, and operations departments.
"Many of our departments were using several different programs to create org charts," said Judy Pieper-Young, Manager of Information Systems. "We wanted a common platform to do this. We found SmartDraw, and saw that it has many other uses as well, such as process flows and schedules. SmartDraw will help us accomplish all of our goals with one program--reducing costs and increasing productivity."
Pieper-Young estimates that about 60 employees will use SmartDraw to automate creation of business graphics. SmartDraw, which is downloaded every year by more than 2 million people, helps users rapidly create graphics such as process flow charts, organization charts, Gantt charts, project charts and more. Unlike other graphics programs that provide users with a blank screen and expect them to draw, such as Visio®, with SmartDraw users start with a template that is specifically designed to create the type of illustration they need. Users enter the information and SmartDraw does the rest: building the graphic automatically using built-in rules and professional design themes to guarantee polished, presentation-quality results in just a few minutes. And, in the rare case that users need extra help, SmartDraw offers free customer support to all users.
SmartDraw offers a variety of licensing options and programs, including educational pricing. A free trial is available at http://www.smartdraw.com and includes both online and telephone technical support.
SmartDraw.com is the creator of SmartDraw, the world's most popular business graphics software and the first program that makes it possible for ordinary computer users to create presentation-quality business graphics in minutes. Each year more than two million people install and use SmartDraw and the company counts more than half of the members of the Fortune 500 as loyal customers.
Founded in 1994, SmartDraw.com is privately-held and based in San Diego, CA. In addition to SmartDraw 2008 for general business and home use, the company also offers SmartDraw Healthcare and SmartDraw Legal editions which include graphics and applications unique to their respective fields.
