Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You could use Visio http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/visio/

Visio for 2007/2003 is also available

Also smartdraw seems cool esp its predefined templates and color combination seems good www.smartdraw.com

Hope this helps!

Thanks!!!

Look for Chartist......
Looke closely, because there are a lot of features that you will discover after playing around e.g.
connect documents, presentations or executables to every element you draw.... Great for presentations..
