Visio Services
You’ve probably heard that a picture is worth 1,000 words, and also that actions speak louder than words. If you
put those two axioms together, you get the idea of Visio. It is often far easier to understand and simpler to explain
a concept, a theory, or even a story by presenting actions visually in blocks and diagrams rather than using words.
Visio is a very powerful vector graphic tool you can use for exactly that.
