Talking About Complex Work

Some teams work on things more complex than others, and to talk about it isn't any easier than the work itself.

To communicate such complicated concepts and unique scenarios, many teams often turn to technical writing and round-the-clock meetings for rescue. Unfortunately, most of these communication means offer much less clarity than they claim to have.

In a time where complications are always mistaken as productivity, we believe simplicity to be the holy grail for effective communication.

At Vecta, we are a small team working on complex problems. Therefore, it is important for us to make communication less about lengthy jargon-filled writing and more about actually conveying the message. This is where we found diagramming shines — boxes and arrows that often sheds more light when discussion becomes complicated and difficult.

It is amazing what wonders these ugly boxes and arrows can do.

Diagramming would later become so indispensable in our team communication that eventually it led us to develop Vecta.

Vecta is our fresh take on team diagramming. With Vecta, the installation process is void and your diagrams now format beautifully on all major browsers. Anyone on the team can access and start working on them right away using any PC. Vecta renders all your drawings with a modern image format called SVG* so you don’t have to worry about pixelation, even upon zooming or scaling your diagram.

* SVG is the acronym for Scalable Vector Graphics, and yes, all your Vecta drawings are rendered with SVG.

Putting the technologies together for Vecta is tough the way we love it, so let us worry about the tech. The catch is that there is nothing more exciting to us than knowing Vecta helps your team as much as it helps us.

Too good to be true? Just what we thought too.

This is where we need your help. Vecta is currently in its public beta, we will be extremely grateful if you and your team can get creative with Vecta. Try Vecta and share with us your collaborative experience. Only with your help, we can make Vecta a better tool for your team.

Signup here as a beta user.

* Vecta respects your privacy and will never share any of your drawings with anyone. Read more about our Privacy Policy here.
