Mindjet Power Markers Adds New Dimension to Interactive Visual Information Maps

Dynamic "Hot Lists" of Priorities, Deadlines and Resources Instantly Highlight Critical Action Items

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 21, 2011) - Mindjet®, the leading provider of business productivity software and web-based applications for visually organizing and managing information and ideas, launched Mindjet Power Markers™ v3 for MindManager® users who need a fast and easy way to categorize 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 $59.95, $20 off the standard $79.95 USD 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 hidden 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.
