Mindjet (News - Alert), a provider of collaborative work management solutions, announced the release of Mindjet MindManager 2012 Professional for Windows, the latest version of its visual information software.
The MindManager 2012 is designed “for today's professionals who need to spark ideas and collaborate with their teams for more productive outcomes,” company officials said. It is enhanced with real-time co-editing, enhanced information maps and new desktop interface.
"MindManager 2012 has been designed to meet the needs of today's professionals who are constantly barraged with new opportunities and pressing business challenges," said Blaine Mathieu, chief products officer, Mindjet, in a statement. "The new guided brainstorming feature organizes an outpouring of ideas that can be quickly honed into real solutions for real business needs."
With these features, MindManager 2012 guides users to unleash their team's creativity. They can utilize predefined challenge questions to promote different ways of thinking about the subject. Leveraging MindManager's powerful visual experience, they can refine concepts and plans. Inspiration cards generate hundreds of fresh ideas.
An important feature of MindManager 2012 is that it integrates with Mindjet Connect, Mindjet's cloud-based service. The integrated product provides open and full sharing of MindManager maps with anyone, anywhere, on any device.
The cloud-based service allows customers to freely collaborate on maps with anyone. "The combination of MindManager 2012 and Connect is nothing short of the future of the collaboration for teams and businesses," said Mathieu.
Back in May, Mindjet announced a new awards program, the Maps for That! Awards ("Mappies"), to honor creativity, innovation and resourcefulness in the MapsforThat.com community. Maps for That! is an online community for publishing and sharing best practices that improve productivity through visual information maps.
