SmartDraw 2012 Reaches Milestone One-Million Trial Software Downloads

SmartDraw Software Attributes Achievement to Growing Demand for Visual Communication and Information Capture Among Collaborative Business Teams

SAN DIEGO, March 14, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — SmartDraw Software, makers of SmartDraw, the world's first visual processor™, today announced it has reached one million trial downloads of its SmartDraw 2012 software in only four months, underscoring the continually growing demand for visual communication and collaboration in businesses of all industries and sizes.

More than three million business users each year install and use SmartDraw, reflecting the fact that everyday users, while highly valuing the use of visuals in presentations, email and other documents, generally don't have the time, patience or technical savvy to manually arrange on pages the visuals that most other graphics software packages require. Aimed to be what the Word processor is to text, the visual processor automates the creation and formatting of visuals into business documents and materials.  

SmartDraw's offerings also include Business, Enterprise and Standard Editions of SmartDraw 2012, each of which includes 70 types of visuals including flowcharts, project charts, information hubs, mind maps, timelines and org charts. Also, breakthrough new information capture solutions are growing in popularity for not only the Fortune 500, but also many public and private institutions including schools, police departments, law firms and health organizations.

"We are excited and proud to have such a wide variety of individual users as well as small, medium, and large businesses download trial copies of our software," said Paul Stannard, SmartDraw CEO. "More significantly, continued increases in our company's yearly sales demonstrate that a sizable number of those downloading trial software become full-fledged customers after experiencing the control, flexibility and overall benefits that SmartDraw delivers in facilitating the use of visuals in everyday business communication."

SmartDraw's more recent integration of SharePoint and its development of Microsoft Project- and Microsoft Visio-compatible features have also combined to propel SmartDraw past this noteworthy milestone. Such increased functionality, and business leaders' recognition of the improved information capture, understanding and retention that visual communication and collaboration supports, will continue for the foreseeable future to propel trial downloads and increased SmartDraw sales, Stannard believes.
