Mindjet Updates Visualization Software

The Pro version includes a new interface based on the Microsoft Office Fluent UI and features tight integration with Microsoft Office applications.

Business workers are seeing things. It's not something in the water. Rather it's Mindjet Corporation's MindManager workflow visualization software.

"We have a very popular product that isn't known widely," said Richard Barber, VP of research and development for Mindjet.

Mindjet says it has sold over 880,000 licenses for its software and that MindManager is used in 85 of the Fortune 100 companies. The reason, Barber claims, is that being able to visualize information makes knowledge workers more productive by saving them anywhere from three to 30 hours per week.

Kevin Parliament, IT manager for International Automotive Components of North America (IACNA), has been using the software for six months and finds it helpful for brainstorming. "I think that the most powerful tool it gives me is the way that it captures my personal brainstorming sessions and my meeting brainstorming sessions," he said. "It organizes things succinctly and it's super easy to use. Other mind mapping software like Visio is just not as simple."

"It helps me be more creative in what I do as an IT manager," Parliament added.

MindManager 7, announced on Tuesday, will be available for Windows (Pro and Lite flavors) and Mac at the end of the month. The Pro version includes a new interface based on the Microsoft Office Fluent UI and features tight integration with Microsoft Office applications.
