Even so, a remarkable free tool from an organization of only 3 people!
Thank you Wes and Jim.
It is difficult for a small company like ours to be "visible" in the marketplace with our main product, the Q-Skills self paced training. We have hundreds of major clients like Microsoft and Florida Power & Light using the training but have found the free flowcharter is the best way to attract more business. We have found that being a small company has enabled us to be more flexible and responsive.
The flowcharting tool actually evolved from the e-learning. Our clients told us that their staff had learnt how to flowchart but their existing flowcharters were too complex for the average user ... and could we recommend something. Quality managers also told us that a major problem with teams building flowcharts was that they had to check everything the teams built ... hence the automatic logic checker. At times people, including myself, can be fooled by this ... I have seen very complex flowcharts that produce errors ... of course on thorough checking endless loops or whatever are found to be present.
You might also notice some word macros that are not setup in the installer. These macros are intended as examples of how you can automatically process the flowcharter output to generate ISO or other forms of process documentation. You might like to play with these.
Of course I should also mention, that if you can refer any Q-Skills training prospects to us, it would be most appreciated.
