You can make beautiful diagrams in Visio, but most of the time you’re positioning shapes just so, drawing arrows, and ultimately, rearranging everything when you need to add or change something.
Ardoq is a Visio alternative that generates diagrams for you, then updates them to reflect any changes in the underlying data. Tasks like adding a step to your process or moving a box to a different swimlane are chores in Visio. In Ardoq, they’re simple. There’s no manual placement in Ardoq diagrams, so your drawing days are over.
Ardoq is not a drawing tool – you can’t position shapes.

Ardoq comes with lots of diagrams out of the box, so you can input your data and immediately start visualizing it. And with our plugin editor, you can customize existing diagrams or create your own.
Ardoq is cloud-based software, so you can work together with your colleagues from anywhere. Use Ardoq’s permissions to make sure only the right people can work on your diagrams. When you’re ready, you can show them off in the Presentation Viewer.
Add a description, tags, and any other custom fields to every component or reference in your diagrams. Then, you can filter this metadata to show, for example, only components where the risk is considered to be “high”.
Ardoq users have access to our robust API and integrations, empowering you to:
“We have searched the market a long time for a tool to document our systems and dependencies. With Ardoq we finally found a tool which is flexible enough to handle our documentation requirements without being forced to use a huge framework.”
