Why Creating Value Stream Maps is Easier with Creately
We have some unique productivity features that will help you create values stream maps extremely fast. For example our 1-click create and connect function (check the image to the right) will save you hours by cutting down on the time taken to drag, drop and manually connect objects. The 1-click create is intelligent enough to chose the next object based on the context thus saving your more time.
Our smart objects and connectors automatically adjust according to the diagram so you don't have to manually rearrange things as soon as you change a position of one object. Another feature that will cut down on the time taken to create a VSM.
The integrated Google image search and icon finder search make it very easy to add images to your VSM. No more searching, saving and importing. Use the built in search box and just drag the image to your value stream map. We thought about all your needs and created VSM software to make creating value stream maps a piece of a cake.
Many Presentation and Exporting Options
We provide you with multiple ways to present and export your diagram. If you want to preserve the links you've added to the diagram then you can export your diagram as a PDF or a SVG file. This is extremely useful if you want to link to an internal document within your value stream map.
Value stream maps are usually large diagrams, especially so if you have large complex processes. Embedding them in your website or intranet can be quite tricky. With our specially designed viewer you can embed large diagram to any web page and view it using zooming tools. The viewer have many more functions to increase the usability. For example you can quickly view every link in the diagram, easily download it in one click etc.
There are many other exporting and presentation features for you to play around with. Our tools remove limitations and help you to be imaginative and creative. Just give it a try and feel the difference.
Draw VSM Together with Real-Time Collaboration
A value stream map usually involves multiple parties, sometimes even people outside your organization. In such a situation its important that you get proper feedback and input when mapping creating your VSM. With our real-time collaboration features you can easily create the VSM together. You just need to add them as a collaborator and they can work with you to build your VSM.
Every change is preserved in the revision history so you can easily analyze the changes and reverse them if necessary. This feature alone saves you hours of time spent on attending meeting and back and forth email communications.
