What's the best org chart builder?

I'm looking to make a hierarchy chart. It's actually not for an organization. What's the best software for this? Ideally, it would accept an excel format or something like that, and then handle drawing the visualization for me.

    Google sheet has a lot of amazing capabilities to plot your data for visualization. You will find tons of addons, apps and even template sheets built on top of which can be used for plotting whole range of data from an excel sheet.
