Mindjet reaches 1.5 million user milestone

Visual information management vendor reaches significant milestone

SYDNEY, October 15, 2010. Mindjet®, the leading provider of software and web-based applications for visually organising and managing information and ideas, has reached a significant corporate milestone in having more than 1.5 million paying users of its leading visual information mapping software.

Global take-up of MindManager is reflected in Australia, where Mindjet has just recorded its best ever quarter for sales. New customers, and those upgrading to the recently launched MindManager 9, range from individuals and students to enterprises that include Australia Post, Raytheon and one of Australia’s Big Four banks.

Since its launch, MindManager® has become the must-have tool that individuals and businesses of all sizes and industries use to capture, organise and present the information needed to better define projects, drive strategic alignment, and improve decision making.

Mindjet is experiencing significant user growth and adoption in the United States and throughout Europe and Asia, adding more than 200,000 new users worldwide year to date. Key customer wins include BMW, Con Edison, Dow Chemical, Siemens and IBM as well as one of the world’s largest defence/aerospace contractors. This group joins long-standing Mindjet customers including 3M, The Coca Cola Company, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Autodesk, Pfizer, Oracle, SAP, Electronic Arts, Procter & Gamble and thousands of other organisations using MindManager to apply visualisation of information and ideas as part of their business process of planning projects, mitigating risk and making better decisions.

Business professionals have too much information coming from all sources to be able to connect the dots and make informed decisions. The vast amount of unconstructed data from the web, meeting notes, research, attachments and individual thoughts do not get viewed in context, making it nearly impossible to think strategically or reach informed conclusions. Mindjet software brings together all relevant information in one interactive display providing greater relevance to the data. Visualising information in a map enables users to think strategically, uncover creative solutions and mitigate risk to help make better decisions.

“A project implementation is only as good as the planning. And the planning is only as good as the tools you’re using to do it. After testing Mindjet software we knew it was perfect for our needs,” said Gerard Beekmans, senior network engineer at First Nations Technical Services Advisory Group (TSAG). “The advance planning, testing and organisation of our thoughts that Mindjet enables had helped us be more effective. Mindjet is the glue we were missing all along.”

Mindjet has also received a strong industry response to several product launches in 2010 resulting in increased sales. MindManager 8 for Mac offers more functionality and better integration with native Mac applications to help increase personal productivity. MindManager for SharePoint and MindManager Deal Navigator for salesforce.com incorporate Mindjet’s innovative visualisation technology to improve the usability of these two leading business applications. MindManager version 9 greatly enhances the usability of Mindjet’s award-winning application, allowing it to integrate more seamlessly with users of other Microsoft Office applications, web services and collaboration platforms.

“Reaching the 1.5 million user milestone is a significant achievement for our organisation, and testament to the growing number of companies and individuals realising the value of visually organising and managing information and ideas,” said Scott Raskin, CEO of Mindjet. “Mindjet solutions solve real business problems for organisations of all sizes, and drives critical business process and innovation as noted by use in 44 of BusinessWeek’s® 50 ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’. We look forward to continued growth – and customer success – in 2010 and beyond.”

MindManager provides a better way to brainstorm, organise information, plan projects, uncover new creative ideas and allows users to communicate more effectively. MindManager’s visual information maps start with a central theme, and then add branches with ideas, notes, images, tasks, hyperlinks and attachments.

Users have access to tight integration with Microsoft Outlook and Office to keep the constant stream of information for a project organised in one easy-to-access location, and a visualisation and dashboard tool for SharePoint environments with MindManager Explorer for SharePoint. Collaboration tools, real-time map co-editing and web based document storage with Mindjet Catalyst are also available.
