When Jeremy Jaech, Ted Johnson, and Dave Walter founded Axon Corporation in 1989, later changed to Shapeware Corp. in 1992, they brought us a fresh approach on how to create drawings for both business and personal uses. Shapeware changed its name to Visio Corporation in 1995 to focus on its flagship product, and that’s where Visimation’s story begins. With the introduction of an Applications Programming Interface (API) for Windows 95 applications, Visio’s power expanded exponentially by enabling developers to create software for virtually any purpose, especially if the users could benefit by having their drawing tasks automated.
Microsoft acquired Visio in 2000 and Visimation became a Microsoft Certified Partner specializing in Visio expertise. Visimation has 20 years of experience that is both broad and deep in developing Visio shapes and automation applications for a wide variety of industries and use cases. We know our stuff and we are very good at what we do.
Visio Shape Production
Our shapes range from simple schematic symbols to photo-realistic renderings of objects and equipment. We know how to get the most out of Visio’s SmartShape technology through ShapeSheet programming.
Need shapes for network equipment? We wrote the original Visio Network Equipment (VNE) specifications for Microsoft after they acquired Visio Corp. in 2000. With that experience we understand how to create Visio stencils that will reflect the quality of your products. They will also be compatible with stencils from other companies for racks, enclosures, etc. if they’ve complied with the Microsoft standards. Our shape production is the best you can find and our customers will attest that we are great to work with. Our current list of client companies in networking is 40 and growing.
Need any other types of shapes? We can create them for any technical drawing use.
Visio Custom Applications
We specialize in integrating Visio graphics with data residing locally, remotely, in databases or spreadsheets. Our rich Visio knowledge base enables us to deliver custom applications in a fraction of the time it would take general purpose programmers because we have seen it all… at least as far as Visio is concerned.
We have an outstanding track record of delivering on time and within the budget we propose at the beginning of a project. The code libraries that we have built over time contain hundreds of re-usable components to speed our development process. Because of our speed, reliability, quality, and work ethic, many of our clients have been working with us for 5-10 years, and several for longer than that.
If you have a Visio development concept that you would like to explore, we are happy to discuss it with you at no initial charge to determine how we can work with you. If it’s a Visio project, we can certainly help.
