The all-new Piktochart lets users create interactive infographics that are search engine friendly

Penang, Malaysia, January 30, 2013 – Piktochart, a fast emerging web-based infographic and presentation tools company today announced the global launch of the all-new Piktochart, a shift from the previous version platform, to allow users create interactive and engaging charts on a completely new and user-friendly dashboard of its free edition.

Through fresh and improved features, Piktochart customers can now insert hyperlinks into contents and add multiple clickable tabs to separate content viewing on infographics. In addition, the latest Piktochart also enables users to share infographics on social media networks and to embed them on websites.
