Orgpad.com Mapping Software

C+ overall rating; impressive software for stability, simplicity, and visual aesthetic; if only it had part-whole it would be MUCH better...

facebook-titleI liked Orgpad.com software but its biggest downside is no part-whole systems ability. It does additional content well. Overall, very nice software but needs to increase the features that will make it systemic--if it did it could be in the running for best systems software....
