What are your recommendations for free flowchart software?
I want to create a flowchart to show a process. What is a modern software? There are only 8 steps. Presentation as a simple easy to follow chart are key.

List of the top ten free flowchart software tools.
I know this is a pretty basic response, but Google has a great listing of free types of flowchart applications available.
Look at these sites:
One of the easiest tools I use is called Draw.io. Their online-based software means you don't have to download any programmes to your computer. It's free, compatible with anything including cloud storage such as Google Docs, and can be saved anywhere. Good luck!
Even though I am a big fan of Open Software I played a bit with inkscape and for my personal needs I found it not mature enough. After several different tests I finally found Cacoo. Cacoo is quick, easy and has all the features you would need. The free version has limits, but, quite frankly, the pro version is less than 5 USD/month so I would strongly suggest it.
I would suggest Power Point, since it will help with your sales presentation...
see this list - it has some good options http://listoffreeware.com/list-of-best-free-flowchart-software-for-windows/
yEd is pretty nice for simple things, and has some good automatic layout functions. If maximum compatibility is a concern, then Visio is probably a better option, but it's Windows-only (whereas yEd is cross-platform, and open source).
I've used Pencil a fair amount a couple of years ago and found it nice looking but clunky to use. That may have changed between then and now.
Hope this helps!
My personal preference is Visio but it is definitely not free. You could use Power Point.
If you're using Chrome, Gliffy Diagrams is pretty cool: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gliffy-diagrams/bhmicilclplefnflapjmnngmkkkkpfad
Inkscape is free, and runs on Windows, OS X and Linux
Another free option is yEd
Or how about Pencil Project
Cacoo has a free version
LucidChart isn't free but starts at $3.33/month, which isn't that much more ;-)
Then again if you only have an occasional requirement, you may be better off using a slide presentation application such as PowerPoint or Apple Keynote.
I always prefer Visio but it is not free :). I also used yEd and it was pretty simple.
