San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2008
SmartDraw.com today announced that the Utica City School District in New York has selected SmartDraw software to help teachers and students communicate visually with graphics. SmartDraw, popular software downloaded every year by 2 million people, will be used to create mind maps, flow charts, timelines, and much more.
"SmartDraw is an affordable, easy-to-use solution to many drawing tasks that students, teachers and other staff members face," said Deborah Y. Bauder, Ph.D., Technology Director, Utica City School District. "SmartDraw will improve communications skills by helping users see the value graphics add to their documents."
SmartDraw, which is used by educators, school administrators and students worldwide, helps teachers rapidly create graphics for forms and worksheets, organize lesson plans, and illustrate virtually any material from history to literature and advanced science. It also helps students create A+ presentations and reports, and visualize even the most difficult concepts. 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.
