OrgPlus 7.0 Professional has one clearly focused aim: to produce organisational charts. By concentrating on this task at the expense of all others, OrgPlus 7.0 Professional enables you to create complex, data-rich charts that can be used by human resource departments to view critical employee information.

OrgPlus 7.0 Professional is aimed at those who may use a charting application such as Visio to create similar types of chart. The difference is that OrgPlus 7.0 Professional offers the ability to create these from existing information extremely easily, via an option to import data from a file or database.

Previous versions of OrgPlus introduced hotspots, and the enhanced version in OrgPlus 7.0 Professional allows you to update employee data from within the hotspots. It is now possible to locate employees who appear several times in a chart – because they answer to multiple managers, for example – much more quickly.

Other improvements in OrgPlus 7.0 Professional involve better commenting tools so that comments can be attached to a box, branch or the entire chart, and enhancements to profiling capabilities. OrgPlus 7.0 Professional functions as a visual database, so that details can be analysed quickly and efficiently.

Changes to templates can be made across a range of charts, and the final results published to a range of formats. Given that OrgPlus 7.0 Professional integrates seamlessly with Office, this would be a useful tool for HR.

OUR VERDICT

And yet this clear targeting of a specific audience does indicate OrgPlus 7.0 Professional' limitations. If you need to manage complex charts of employees, OrgPlus 7.0 Professional is highly recommended – especially for its abilities to create charts from existing data. For anyone requiring a more general tool that will provide advanced capabilities over those found in Excel or PowerPoint, Visio is a more flexible option.
