Mindjet Named ‘Cool Vendor’ in Project and Program Management Report by leading research firm

  • 22 April, 2009 09:49

<p>SYDNEY — April 22, 2009 — Mindjet®, the leading provider of mind mapping and visual collaboration solutions, has announced it has been named a ‘Cool Vendor’ in the ‘Cool Vendors in Project and Program Management, 2009’ report by Gartner, Inc.</p>
<p>According to the report, “Once individuals are assigned to a project task, they generally understand ‘where’ they are going, but the details on how they will get there require some thought and creativity. To short-circuit some of that individual thinking and planning time, people have invested a lot of time and money creating templates, but they have ignored the fact that the information needed to fill out the templates is still the result of an individual or group thought process. This is where the concept of mind mapping comes in. It's been found to help people quickly capture their thoughts and understand the interrelationship between one concept and another.”</p>
<p>Used by more than 1.5 million individuals around the world in more than 85 per cent of the companies listed in the Fortune 500, Mindjet products have been shown to save workers at large enterprises more than seven hours per week by helping them have more effective meetings, manage projects more efficiently and enhance their personal productivity.</p>
<p>MindManager is a productivity tool and the world’s leading mind mapping application. Unlike documents, presentations and email that constrain people to working one page at a time, Mindjet MindManager’s visual approach on an expandable canvas, or ‘map’, efficiently organises complex ideas and processes to increase clarity and turn ideas into action.</p>
<p>Documents, emails, slideshows, live hyperlinks, images and much more can be embedded into a new productivity dashboard. Complex ideas, as well as personal or business information and processes, can be viewed at a glance, with the ability to drill into the detail by clicking into sub-topics and branches. Millions of successful people use MindManager as their ‘essential fifth’ productivity tool to manage projects, develop plans, create presentations and accomplish a limitless number of other tasks. MindManager is available as a standalone desktop application, as well as a Web-based service. In addition, a powerful collaboration platform and workspace manager connects to both products, allowing teams of people to chart their ideas and information visually, share documents and files, and conduct web conferences.</p>
<p>“Mindjet is honoured to be recognised by Gartner as a Cool Vendor,” said Scott Raskin, Mindjet CEO. “We believe this is a validation of the market need for better productivity solutions and new ways of propelling innovation that Mindjet’s products are addressing. We’ve seen how MindManager can change the way people collaborate and are positioned to help more people achieve the same kind of transformation.”</p>
