How Edrawers talk about us.

I am thoroughly impressed with EdrawMax's capabilities as a free P&ID software. Most of our interns are clueless when it comes to extensive diagramming. But with EdrawMax, they are in a safer hand. Its specialized features cater to the intricate demands of process engineering, ensuring that our less experienced employees can also study complex P&ID with ease. With EdrawMax's intuitive interface and free templates, I confidently recommend it as one of the best P&ID software for professionals and new interns.

EdrawMax has proven to be an invaluable asset in my pursuit of creating accurate and complex P&ID. The rich repository of symbols and templates specific to process engineering allowed my team and I to construct comprehensive diagrams with ease. What impressed us with this tool is how accurate P&ID symbols are, and in rare cases when we couldn't find any symbol, we could easily import the image or create our own image and save them in a personalized library -- how easy and comfortable it is? If you are planning to start using EdrawMax for P&ID, I would say don't delay for a single day!

Having extensively utilized EdrawMax for the creation of P&ID diagrams, I am compelled to talk about its efficacy. We used MS Visio for a very long time, but when we moved to EdrawMax, we didn't even renew our Visio license. This tool not only offers free templates and symbols but can export P&IDs into Visio's VSDX file, which improves our cross-platform collaboration. Moreover, I used the web version of this tool, and I was amazed at how easy it was to import my diagrams from the personal cloud storage that it offers. If you ask me, I will give this P&ID software a solid A+ for diagramming and sharing.
