Introducing MindManager 7
MindManager 7 is available in both Microsoft Windows (MindManager Pro 7 and MindManager 7 Lite) and Macintosh versions (MindManager 7 Mac). MindManager Pro 7 better enables the powerful integration capabilities with Microsoft Office products, as well as more elegant and powerful navigation and usability.
"MindManager 7 will transform the way people work and interact with information," said Scott Raskin, CEO of Mindjet. "MindManager and its use of information maps will help people visualise and see the big picture to achieve better business results.

Mindjet MindManager Pro 7
MindManager Pro 7 for Microsoft Windows features a new interface based on the Microsoft Office Fluent™ UI – designed to enable people to quickly discover and utilise more capabilities within MindManager. New usability enhancements include easier browsing within the Ribbon which has logically grouped tabs, saved queries and views for better navigation, new map styles and galleries for faster formatting, and enhanced ScreenTips, just to name a few.
"Mindjet is addressing a pressing need in the marketplace today for more visual and easy-to-use interfaces to business productivity and planning applications," said Mark Levitt, vice president for Collaborative Computing and the Enterprise Workplace at IDC. "As individuals and teams strive to better manage information overload and time constraints, MindManager can be a valuable application for creating, sharing and managing information and knowledge."
Tight integration with Microsoft applications in MindManager means users can launch Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Project or Outlook from within MindManager as well as import or export key content or information easily to any Microsoft Office application. Advanced sorting, topic-level formatting, and the centralisation of map subtopics further streamline the easy navigation and visualisation of particular sets of information within a Mindjet map.
"Mindjet has done a beautiful job of incorporating the Microsoft Office Fluent UI into their new release of MindManager. We are extremely happy to have them as one of our many licensees, and are proud of the work they have done in showcasing the improved usability that the Office Fluent UI brings to products of all kinds," said Chris Bryant, Senior Product Manager, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Corporation.
MindManager maps can be linked to variety of data sources beyond Microsoft® Office, such as RSS feeds, websites, and popular applications like Salesforce.com®, enabling users to capture, organise, and visualise complex information. Integration with leading productivity applications and enterprise solutions saves users time and ensures quick data exchange for dashboard and presentation creation, contact and content management, data and project management, and more.
