Businesses searching for a better way to accelerate productivity, foster alignment, and improve performance have a powerful new tool at their disposal. Launching today, MindManager® 2018 for Windows is the latest and most innovative version yet of the world's leading mind mapping and information visualization software.

Customers use MindManager to turn disparate information surrounding a concept, plan, or project into responsive, shareable visual maps that enable them to clarify direction and action. With support for timelines, process flows, Gantt charts, and deep integration with the applications businesses rely on, MindManager gives individuals and teams powerful tools to communicate, collaborate, and get great work done fast.

MindManager 2018 for Windows takes these capabilities to the next level with new ways to intelligently view and filter content, automate real-time changes to data, and dynamically convey complex information. Businesses of any size can take command of their most precious resources - time and work - to generate results. The latest version of MindManager is available in a standalone version for single users and an Enterprise version for teams that range from small businesses to large global accounts.

"The need for a solution that facilitates greater understanding and alignment between team members and across organizations is more urgent than ever," says Michael Deutch, Vice President of Products for Mindjet, creator of MindManager.

"In a recent MindManager Workplace survey, 50 percent of respondents said their companies' projects had failed due to a lack of alignment and only a quarter of their workplaces take steps to address it. Clearly, businesses require a better way to understand and share knowledge," added Deutch. "With the new MindManager 2018, users will not only improve their productivity when working on a project, but more importantly, they'll discover which are the right projects to work on in the first place! When teams have a shared plan and understanding, the impact on organizational success is remarkable."
