Chartist by Novagraph. Flowchart and Organization Chart Software
"As a graduate school professor, I find that a good flowchart or diagram can often clarify an important concept. I have used Chartist for many years, and found it to be an excellent, user-friendly program that makes it easy to construct simple or complex diagrams and use them alone or import them into word-processing programs. Chartist earns my highest recommendation."
Henry Virkler, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology
Palm Beach Atlantic University
"I have used Novagraph's Chartist for elaborating complex logical frameworks for internatonal development programs and knowledge management for USAID. The new version of Chartist is especially useful for importing charts into other programs like MS Word and PowerPoint."
Antony A. Phipps, Ph.D.
"For me, it is better than any other flow chart software I have used or seen. My experiences with this software and company make one feel that you are really a customer focus high tech and easy to use product company."
Richard B. Simmons
"An easy to use charting program that enables us to produce charts for the organisation and output them in a form suitable for integration with other software packages."

"I was involved with a meeting at a telesuite in which my project team members from Europe, and various locations throughout Virginia were on plasma display screens. It was all very first-class. We tried to use the facility's built-in PC to share graphic flow charting development over NetMeeting, but the facility did not have Visio or PowerPoint, my client's 'approved' program. This was a HUGE risk to producing results. I whipped out my jump drive that contains a downloaded demo copy of Chartist-Pro and installed TEMPORARILY onto the PC as a DEMO (we had 20 uses to get it right). The facilitator was ELATED. He was not familiar with Chartist but found it EASY TO USE (easier than the Microsoft alternatives) and JUST AS EFFECTIVE as the other programs. Chartist saved the day and won a new customer for Novagraph."

"In my position as a system architect, I exclusively use Chartist for process and database modeling. I find the tool ideal to communicate my designs with both client management and technical developers. The new version 5.0 brings additional functionality I can use to make my models more understandable, which will result in more rapid system implementation." - Darryl Goebel, Raleigh, NC

"Having used Chartist since 1998, I can vouch for it's quick and easy GUI, flawless arrow connections and a fantastic palette of symbols, fonts and color schemes. Having "invested" in other packages and left them in the box after hours of frustration, I can highly recommend the power of Chartist 5.0. This program is a must-have desktop link." - Owen Moore, Clinical PT Specialist
"I've been using Chartist for years (since around 1988-1990, I think) and would just like to say how much I like it. It's intuitive and easy to use (unlike some applications) and I recommend it whenever I can. Good work - keep it up." - Peter Kingston
"After trying Chartist Professional I found it a smart, no-nonsense program and would happily recommend it to anyone seeking a really innovative flow chart solution." - Adam Aloi
