LONDON, September 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
New Mindjet service promotes better ideas and powerful collaboration leading to significant productivity gains
Mindjet® today announced the integration of all desktop, web, mobile and on-premise products into one collaborative work management service. Now customers get the power of Mindjet's MindManager® and the flexibility of Stevie's Collaboration/Social Software award-winning Mindjet Connect® at one subscription price with the ubiquity of Mindjet Mobile under the single Mindjet brand. A complete offering, customers receive Mindjet's visual collaboration and task management capabilities for brainstorming, creating plans or tracking milestones across teams on whatever device they choose, from wherever they are in the world. The new Mindjet offering will be generally available on September 20, 2012 at 6AM PDT, 2PM BST and 3PM CEST.
Mindjet provides a visual way to generate better ideas that are seamlessly tracked with project and task management capabilities, leading to greater accountability and success. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, better collaboration can increase productivity by 25 percent¹. "Mindjet is the first thing our team looks at in the morning, even before checking email," said Gary Hielkema, CEO of Sensorlink, a USA-based company. "With Mindjet we can brainstorm on a project and then track our exact progress; I get a better assessment over a three-minute period than if I had an actual face to face conversation."
"Mindjet is changing the way people work. We're creating a single collaboration space for professionals to work inspired and generate real results," said Scott Raskin, Mindjet CEO. "The new Mindjet offering brings together our award-winning MindManager brainstorming and mapping capabilities with Connect social task management into an integrated collaboration service that's available anywhere."
Included as part of the new Mindjet release, the company launched the latest version of MindManager, Mindjet 11 for Windows, with powerful new capabilities:
- Intuitive planning and budgeting tools that auto calculate project costs and expenses
- Synchronisation of tasks and assignments across desktop, web, mobile and on-premise applications
- Customisable workspace that allows for modification of menus and creation of custom ribbons to suit what you do most often
Customers and tech insiders have experienced how Mindjet boosts productivity: "Mindjet's software has been pivotal in helping me and my team deliver projects on time and within budget. It makes the planning and execution of tasks more creative, flexible and reliable by suiting many different working styles. The ability to collaborate with others and have a constant overview of progress is invaluable. Mindjet's move to consolidate all products into one solution makes absolute sense to me and will really benefit both teams and individuals. I can already envisage how the ability to share and access information through any platform, teamed with the enhancements with Mindjet 11 for Windows will help my own team in collaborating and working better together across projects," said Toni Rogez, Data Projects Manager at Centrica.
"Mindjet has extended its mapping and brainstorming software to drive the science of innovation with additional social task management tools. Mindjet's integrated cloud service simplifies collaboration across teams and enables real work to drive business." - Jim Lundy, Lead Analyst, Aragon Research
