The problem is that they probably tried to build their org chart in PowerPoint, and while PowerPoint is an excellent presentation tool, it just wasn’t made for diagramming.

Fortunately, there’s an easy solution—Lucidchart. Cloud-based and easy to use, Lucidchart provides an unparalleled visualization experience for anyone, but especially those who find it frustrating to line up everything perfectly in PowerPoint. Rather than meticulously drawing every box by hand, you can jump-start your org chart in Lucidchart with pre-loaded shapes or by auto-generating a diagram from an imported CSV file. When the chart is done, it’s easy to print it, share it, or embed it in a company wiki.
