Mindjet’s ’Mindful’ program extends to ANZ while helping quake and tsunami victims

MindManager®, available free of charge to any organisation helping with relief and recovery in stricken areas

SYDNEY, NSW – March 21, 2011 – Mindjet®, whose interactive business productivity solutions let business professionals easily capture and visually organise ideas, information and schedules, announced that it is working with its teams in Australia and New Zealand to ensure that free products are available for businesses and organisations that are working to relieve the impact of recent flooding in the states of Queensland and Victoria, Australia and the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand.

In light of the multiple humanitarian emergencies throughout Asia and the Pacific, Mindjet is making its leading information mapping product, MindManager®, available free of charge to any organisation that is helping with relief and recovery in these stricken areas. The company is working with its offices in Japan and Australia to identify the various local organisations that are providing disaster relief, ensuring that services are delivered to those most in need.

In addition, Mindjet’s social consciousness organisation, Mindful, has set aside $5,000 in matching funds to support company employees who wish to donate to the American Red Cross® in their aim to help those impacted by these recent events.

Abe Smith, Regional Vice-President of Sales of Americas and APAC and head of the Mindful program, said: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Mindjet office in Japan and all of the families and individuals throughout Asia and Oceania who have been affected recent events.”
