Mindjet Reaches 1.5 Million User Milestone

Milestone Marks Groundswell of Individuals and Organizations Realizing the Value of Visually Organizing and Managing Information and Ideas

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2010) -  Mindjet®, the leading provider of software and web-based applications for visually organizing and managing information and ideas, today reached a significant corporate milestone in having more than 1.5 million paying users of its leading visual information mapping software. Since its launch, MindManager® has become the must-have tool that individuals and businesses of all sizes and industries use to capture, organize and present the information needed to better define projects, drive strategic alignment, and improve decision making.

Business professionals have too much information coming from all sources to be able to connect the dots and make informed decisions. The vast amount of unconstructed data from the web, meeting notes, research, attachments and individual thoughts do not get viewed in context, making it nearly impossible to think strategically or reach informed conclusions. Mindjet software brings together all of your information in one interactive display providing greater relevance to the data. Visualizing information in a map enables you to think strategically, uncover creative solutions and mitigate risk to help you make better decisions.

Mindjet is experiencing significant user growth and adoption in the United States and throughout Europe and Asia, adding more than 200,000 new users worldwide year to date. Key customer wins include BMW, Con Edison, Dow Chemical, Raytheon, Siemens and IBM as well as one of the world's largest defense/aerospace contractors. This group joins long standing Mindjet customers including 3M, The Coca Cola Company, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Autodesk, Pfizer, Oracle, SAP, Electronic Arts, Procter & Gamble and thousands of other organizations using MindManager to apply visualization of information and ideas as part of their business process of planning projects, mitigating risk and making better decisions.

"A project implementation is only as good as the planning. And the planning is only as good as the tools you're using to do it. After testing Mindjet software we knew it was perfect for our needs," said Gerard Beekmans, senior network engineer at First Nations Technical Services Advisory Group (TSAG). "The advance planning, testing and organization of our thoughts that Mindjet enables had helped us be more effective. Mindjet is the glue we were missing all along."

Mindjet has also received great industry response to several product launches in 2010 resulting in increased sales. MindManager 8 for Mac offers more functionality and better integration with native Mac applications to help increase personal productivity. MindManager for SharePoint and MindManager Deal Navigator for incorporate Mindjet's innovative visualization technology to improve the usability of these two leading business applications. MindManager version 9 greatly enhances the usability of Mindjet's award-winning application, allowing it to integrate more seamlessly with users of other Microsoft Office applications, web services and collaboration platforms.

"Reaching the 1.5 million user milestone is a significant achievement for our organization, and testament to the growing number of companies and individuals realizing the value of visually organizing and managing information and ideas," said Scott Raskin, CEO of Mindjet. "Mindjet solutions solve real business problems for organizations of all sizes, and drives critical business process and innovation as noted by use in 44 of BusinessWeek's® 50 'World's Most Innovative Companies'. We look forward to continued growth -- and customer success -- in 2010 and beyond."

MindManager provides a better way to brainstorm, organize information, plan projects, uncover new creative ideas and allows you to communicate more effectively. MindManager's visual information maps start with a central theme, and then add branches with ideas, notes, images, tasks, hyperlinks and attachments. Users have access to tight integration with Microsoft Outlook and Office to keep the constant stream of information for a project organized in one easy-to-access location, and a visualization and dashboard tool for SharePoint environments with MindManager Explorer for SharePoint. Collaboration tools, real-time map co-editing and web based document storage with Mindjet Catalyst are also available.
