Mindjet Launches Solution to Accelerate and Improve Sales Results

Visual Productivity Solution Increases the Effectiveness of Discovery and Selling Interactions, Account and Territory Planning

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 1, 2009) - Mindjet®, the leading provider of collaboration and personal productivity solutions that visually connect ideas, information and people, today announced MindManager Sales Edition, a version of MindManager 8 for Windows aimed specifically at sales professionals. The solution provides a more effective means for engaging in discovery and customer-sales interactions, ultimately building stronger relationships and accelerating sales cycles. The territory and account planning features ensure necessary planning work is done quickly and effectively, allowing sales teams to focus on driving opportunities and providing relevant solutions to their customers. By visually representing needs and requirements, customers feel understood and key next steps are highlighted and agreed to, avoiding delays in a sales cycle and increasing forecasting accuracy.

MindManager Sales Edition includes 12 templates for sales professionals, teams and sales managers. Ranging from client discovery and account planning to meeting management and territory planning, these templates take advantage of MindManager's visual productivity environment to drive sales results. While CRM systems have been designed to help management track the sales process, MindManager Sales Edition helps sales professionals sell more effectively. Client conversations are quickly captured and accurately represented, highlighting key requirements, status or priorities and filtered to focus attention on incomplete action items or areas of risk or opportunity. Integration with the Microsoft Office productivity suite transforms conversations into presentations, proposals and status reports with a few clicks.

"Today, most sales teams rely on a mix of tools such as spreadsheets, e-mail, word processing, and CRM to manage their sales cycles, which is a cumbersome and disjointed approach," said Greg Brown, vice president and general manager, Americas for Mindjet. "Sales professionals need a better tool to tie all of these fragmented conversations and data into solutions for their clients. MindManager Sales Edition was designed specifically for activities sales teams engage in every day and is helping our customers speed sales cycles and increase win rates."

"Before MindManager, our average sales cycle was around nine months. Now it's on average three months and our win rate has increased," said Stu Schmidt, vice president of global sales and service, Unisfair. "MindManager has invaluable benefits. It can be better than face-to-face meetings. When a prospective customer and I come out of an initial discovery call and refer to what we created in MindManager, we experience a heightened level of clarity -- which creates an amazing level of trust."

MindManager Sales Edition is available on September 1, 2009 for purchase and electronic download at the Mindjet online store or through a Mindjet corporate sales representative for $499.
