Visio Professional 2013 - buy the Microsoft program for diverse visualizations as used software
Visio Professional 2013 is the most comprehensive edition of this Microsoft program version of Visio; it not only contains considerably more templates for the professional creation of diagrams, but also has exclusive functions that make the application easier and simpler: for example, with Visio Professional 2013 certain diagram types can be linked to Excel tables and data can be imported directly into shapes; in addition, frequently used building blocks of diagrams are available even more directly via the Quick Shapes.
With Visio Professional 2013, users can create graphical representations in very different areas in just a few steps; these include not only business structures and processes, but also technical processes and procedures, as well as plans and scientific representations. Visio 2013 Professional Edition is best used wherever there is a need to clearly illustrate and explain complex issues and organizations through a graphical representation.
All diagram types available in Visio 2013 are clearly arranged in thematically grouped templates for the individual application areas, and can be supplemented with the respective assigned shapes via drag & drop as well as filled with text or visually edited.
Users of Office programs will also quickly find their way around Visio 2013 Professional, as the desktop interface of the program is similarly structured, and the integrated tools can also be used just as intuitively here, so that diagrams can be adapted and edited without any problems.
For which user groups is the Visio 2013 Professional edition intended?
The Professional edition of MS Visio 2013 offers a maximum of functions as well as diagram types, so that sophisticated visualizations can be created for the most diverse areas of application - at a professional level, which is required especially in large companies and organizations.
A great advantage of Visio 2013 Professional as well as the other editions is their great compatibility with other Microsoft applications: in terms of operating systems, it ranges from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Visio 2013 Professional is therefore particularly attractive for those users who have not yet made the switch to a newer operating system or are avoiding this step, so that the use of the Visio software in the 2013 version is also possible without an update, if necessary.
This professional edition of Microsoft Visio 2013 is offered in Wiresoft's software store as a single license in the purchase version - it is used software that arises when a volume license is dissolved. Used software licenses from Wiresoft have a significantly lower price compared to new software and thus represent an inexpensive option for many user groups to use a Microsoft software like Visio 2013.
In addition, buyers in the Wiresoft Software Online Shop can also find many other Microsoft programs, e.g. Windows operating systems, in versions compatible with Visio 2013 - as inexpensive used software single licenses. The following overview presents the most important features and tools of Visio 2013 Professional Edition.
Exclusive features and functions of Visio Professional 2013 Edition
Visio 2013 Professional has, in addition to a much larger scope of diagram templates, also particularly practical functions with which the creation as well as the filling of diagrams is even faster and easier:
Quick-Shapes for frequently used shapes
The Quick-Shape function speeds up the creation of diagrams and thus offers practical support especially for those users who frequently work with Visio 2013 Professional. With Quick-Shape, they can change the order of shapes within a template and drag them to a specific position, e.g. place the most frequently used shapes at the top of the shape list so that they are immediately available. These can also be displayed using the mini toolbar for shapes by cursor and the Auto Connect function.
Import data from external sources into shapes
Exclusive to the Professional Edition of Visio 2013 is the feature to import data from an external source into one or more shapes. Since the most common external data source is Excel, a quick import function is available for this purpose. In this process, a row is linked to the respective data or assigned to a specific shape. After the data import, so-called data graphics can be applied to this shape, e.g. colored labels for certain values or also labels. These can be changed, moved or the imported data contained in them can also be updated.
Alternatively, user-defined import from a data source is also possible. The imported data can be displayed in Visio 2013 Professional in a separate "External data" window.
Use a variety of templates in Visio Professional 2013 and further customize them with shapes
The Visio Professional 2013 edition offers the widest range of Standard- and special diagrams suitable for visualizing structures and processes as well as plans in most business areas. Among them are the many different types of flowcharts, which can be used to represent not only technical processes and procedures - data flowcharts for system representations, process flowcharts for chemical engineering - but also typical business areas such as workflow and business process modeling diagrams.
Also included are many diagrams according to UML-Standard (Unified Modeling Language), which are mainly used in software development, with class and component diagrams for system structures and components, deployment and sequence diagrams for runtime systems and their elements, as well as database notation, use case and communication diagrams, etc.
All templates available in Visio Professional 2013 can be edited with the respective Standard shapes as well as self-created shapes, and the diagrams thus created can be saved again as templates.
Other new features and improvements in Visio Professional 2013
A major advantage of Microsoft Visio 2013 Professional is its visual orientation to Office programs, which makes the desktop view immediately familiar to users. In addition to the Professional functions already mentioned, Visio 2013 also offers further new features compared to the previous version:
- Optimized diagram templates: In particular, the Visio 2013 templates for database diagrams as well as organizational charts and those of the Unified Modeling Language and for Business Process Modeling have been supplemented or improved in this version, including in the Standard shapes and the time axis display.
- New formatting: Diagrams created in Microsoft Visio Professional 2013 can now also be given new effects such as 3D, color gradients or shadows.
- Drag and drop function: Via drag and drop, Visio 2013 Professional can be used intuitively to import data into diagrams or to paste diagrams created in Visio 2013 back into Excel, PowerPoint or Word documents.
- Other file formats: In addition to the .vsdx file extension for saving Visio files, Visio 2013 Professional can also use vsdm, .vssm, .vssx, .vstm as well as .vstx.
The structure of diagrams available in Visio 2013 Professional
Visio 2013 Professional is organized and structured like a construction kit, allowing users to quickly find their way around. There are the following 3 levels:
Shapes represent the basic elements, i.e. the components that make up a diagram. They are grouped together in the stencils. When creating or editing a diagram, a shape is dragged as a copy onto a new or existing drawing sheet. In contrast to shapes, the copies in Visio 2013 are referred to as instances.
The instances or copied shapes can then be edited using their selection points - they can be rotated, changed in width and height or scaled, color, line thickness or contour can be changed and finally data or text can be inserted.
A certain group of shapes is combined in so-called templates, which typically make up a certain diagram type and can also be contained several times in different templates. Thus, in Visio 2013 Professional, the appropriate set of shapes is available in each diagram type.
Using templates in Visio 2013 Professional
To create a diagram, users can either open a corresponding template that contains a suitable Standard diagram and adapt or fill it, or design their own diagram using the available shapes.
Such self-created diagrams as well as any other standard diagram edited in Visio 2013 Professional can be saved and are available again when the program is opened again.
Visio files have their own extension .vsd, but they can also be used in other Microsoft programs, for example as part of a presentation in PowerPoint. Users should know that a file created with Visio Professional 2013 is not compatible with a more recent Office program.

Visio 2013 Professional Edition - buy cheap as used software at Wiresoft
This MS Visio 2013 Professional Edition is available in the Wiresoft online store in the form of a single-user license at a particularly low price in the form of used software, because here the price is significantly lower than comparable new goods; in addition, in the usual trade buyers usually find only the latest software version of Visio. This is often a subscription version with corresponding contractual obligations and updates that are subject to a charge. In addition to the lower purchase price, the purchase version offered by Wiresoft therefore also offers the advantage of unlimited usability.
Basic information about used software from Wiresoft: The single user license of Visio Professional 2013 Edition offered here originates from a volume license of the Microsoft program, which was first purchased and often used by an authorized company. Within the scope of the legally permissible resale or acquisition by Wiresoft, this was split into individual licenses, which were thus marked as used software. Thereby, neither the dissolution of the volume license nor the labeling as "used software" results in restrictions of the functional range or the temporal usability of Visio 2013 - and this not only because a software does not wear out, but especially because no valid regulations are violated by the described processes.
Furthermore, all offered used software licenses, such as the Professional Edition of Microsoft Visio 2013 in this case, originate from companies for which the valid case law applies to the associated business transactions, which clearly states that the trade in used software is legally permitted. This fact has already been clearly confirmed by various court rulings, which means for you as a buyer that, on the one hand, a liability risk is reliably excluded and, on the other hand, the software purchased by you is also audit-proof due to complete proof of all purchases or sales on the part of Wiresoft.
Ergo: Buying software with Wiresoft is always a safe business for you as a customer, which offers you only advantages! When buying a used software license of Visio 2013 Professional - or any other Microsoft program - you benefit not only from the great price advantage compared to new goods, but also from the buyer security through the instant download and immediate license activation with the volume license key valid exclusively for the application you have purchased.
