Flowchart software can be used for engineering, process planning, software design, and organization charts, which make the management of talent so much easier. Team Org Chart is an org chart creator designed not to replace your existing Microsoft toolchain, but to synchronize with it and augment its abilities.
Team Org Chart is designed for use by businesses both small and at enterprise-level, though startups may find it overpowered and costly. For startups, it really depends on budget and established toolchain.
SynchronizationSynchronize this with your Office365 to harness its cloud power for collaboration and reliable backups. This also makes standards instantly compliant since it produces charts that Office365’s various viewers and importers can work with easily.
Export to Multiple FormatsIf you have people working with other toolchains aside from Microsoft, Team Org Chart supports multiple formats for import and export, and it’s completely lossless, since it doesn’t do any odd elements or data structures that don’t carry over flawlessly.
Advanced Search:Team Org Chart offers advanced searching based on grouping, position, department, and interconnection. This allows you to find people based on what they offer, not just names or crude string lookups. This is very powerful when assembling teams or filling in gaps when talent becomes unavailable.
Real Data:Due to the synchronization with Office365, these charts can bring in real associate data, which enhances the searches and provides better interconnectivity across the board.
Advanced Directory:Team Org Chart offers an extensive directory lookup alongside their advanced search, making it easy to quickly find the right person for the right task.
Advanced Customization:Customize your charts and rules to meet your specific needs. Save your customizations for future use, while resting assured it’ll work fine with other chart software you’re exporting to.
Platform Agnosticism:Being web-based, Team Org Chart runs on any device that can provide a W3C-compliant browsing experience. This means you can work remotely from your tablet or your smart phone.
Clean UI:Something often overlooked is the importance of a clean, simple, and attractive UI. Team Org Chart’s UI is crisp, clean, and it actually allows various custom color schemes so the harsh bright theme can be done away with readily. That’s actually a really nice feature as these bright interfaces tend to become straining to eyes over time. That’s why dark themes are so popular with writers and programmers these days.
Templates:Team Org Chart offers a wide range of templates, which can save a lot of time alongside customization. You can create, save, and share templates, and allow OneDrive to even back them up for you automatically. It’s pretty convenient.
Great Support:You have solid support coming from both sides of this solution. First, Team Org Chart themselves provide good support. On top of this, you also have Microsoft, which mostly provides overall satisfactory support for all of their solutions. You know that either way, if something goes wrong, you can get the problem solved quickly and promptly.
Team Org Chart lists the available prices and plans on a monthly or yearly basis, based on employee numbers. They have groups of 1-199, 200-750, 751+, and even a bespoke on-premise installation.
The bespoke installation requires contacting the sales department, but the other plans list their prices very clearly. It’s very reasonably-priced, with the small org plan being very affordable for a small business, at least if this kind of functionality is something you need frequently.
The Big Picture
Feature-wise, Team Org Chart is a relatively standard org flowchart system, but very full-featured. The customization it allows is actually quite extensive compared to its peers, and the advanced search system (coupled with outside data) is something you don’t see flow chart applications very often.
The most interesting is its desire to cooperate with Office365 rather than try to compete with its own flow chart system. It makes sense—providing cloud backup is a costly endeavor, especially for a small, startup solution like this. Simply specializing in a task and cohabitating with a bigger solution with built-in cloud functionality is actually a pretty clever approach.
This software might be setting a precedent with that, and it’ll be interesting to see if the developers try some other specialty implementations, should Team Org Chart succeed.
