Mindjet Power Markers adds new dimension to interactive visual information maps

Dynamic ‘hot lists’ of priorities, deadlines and resources instantly highlight critical action items

SYDNEY, April 22, 2011. Mindjet®, the leading provider of business productivity software and web-based applications for visually organising and managing information and ideas, launched Mindjet Power Markers™ v3 for MindManager® users who need a fast and easy way to categorise and highlight priorities, resource assignments and upcoming deadlines.

Mindjet acquired Power Markers from Harport Consulting, a participant in Mindjet’s developer program, and is introducing Power Markers version 3 as a fully-supported Mindjet solution.

Mindjet Power Markers complements MindManager’s interactive, visual maps with indexed lists, so that users can quickly find and act on the critical information contained within their maps.

Special introductory pricing of $US59.95, $US20 off the standard $US79.95 retail price, is available through June 30th, 2011. For an immediate download please visit: http://www.mindjet.com/power-markers.

Supporting Facts:

• Power Markers helps users who have developed large, complex maps effortlessly create a corresponding index of critical map elements, such as resource assignments, priorities and deadlines, so they can instantly navigate to relevant sections of the map.

• Power Markers’ indexed lists provide a linear view of map content which can be easily copied and pasted into other applications. The lists are created automatically, based on existing map markers or tags.

• Power Markers picks out topics with common characteristics, sorts and groups them together in lists and then puts them in a navigation window right next to the map. Users with complex maps can view all unfinished actions together in one place and simply click on one action to go directly to that location in the map, even if it is buried a few levels deep.

• Power Markers is an add-on for Mindjet MindManager version 8 and MindManager version 9 for Windows.

• Power Markers is available in English and French language versions at http://www.mindjet.com/power-markers. Special introductory pricing is available until June 30th, 2011: $US59. After June 30th, 2011 standard product pricing will be: $US79.

• Harport Consulting originally developed Power Markers as part of the Mindjet Developer Network™, which enables outside developers to quickly design add-ons to Mindjet products.

Supporting Quotes:

• Ken Hirschman, vice president of business development at Mindjet: “The Power Markers launch is a testimonial to our open API and the Mindjet Developer Network which continues to incubate great ideas that provide additional value to our more than 1.8 million Mindjet users across the globe.”

• Robert Riddle, senior associate at Baker & Botts, LLP: "I use Mindjet's MindManager to better understand and manage information for complex legal projects and litigation, and Power Markers keeps me in control no matter how large my maps are or how I organise them. Now I can quickly and easily keep track of important details, useful info and changing priorities.”

• Nick Duffill, founder of Harport Consulting: “Power Markers was developed to make it easier for users to manage complex maps and quickly spotlight high-priority items in both list and map views so that they can access information in the manner that ensures that it can be quickly analysed and acted upon.”

• Nick Duffill, founder of Harport Consulting: "MindManager maps are perfect for thinking, creating, planning and organising; list views are great when it comes to prioritising and taking action. Power Markers was developed to give MindManager users the best of both worlds."
