[prMac.com] Odessa, Ukraine - CS Odessa announces the availability of ConceptDraw MINDMAP for Projects, the new specific mind map solution for creative project management. This special edition of the CS Odessa ConceptDraw MINDMAP is a mind mapping tool that addresses the needs of those who require an enhanced project management focus. ConceptDraw MINDMAP for Projects utilizes InGyre Technology, developed by CS Odessa that enables users to work on project planning, team work coordination and communication within a single information set.
This new edition of MINDMAP promotes an alternative way to kick-off projects, beginning with brainstorming project ideas, using whiteboard views, and organizing results into highly informative mind maps. During the next phase, information is then transformed into detailed project plans with Gantt charts. Managers can balance and efficiently allocate resource loads using the Resource Usage view, or assign and send task lists to team participants in the form of mind maps.
Mind mapping software is a powerful and flexible tool to manage projects, goals, resources and to do lists. It is highly effective way to communicate project scope and results, as well as drill down to daily tasks. With ConceptDraw MINDMAP for Projects, it is easy to move single or multiple projects from a creative mind mapping environment to operational Gantt chart formats.
"It is really important for me, that I work in an environment like MINDMAP, in which I can simply add notes, activities, and last minute changes to a project--then export up-to-date information into a presentable Gantt chart! The integration between the two applications is really important." says Sebastiano Natalicchio, IT Project Manager.
ConceptDraw MINDMAP for Projects is especially recommended for project managers in mid-size companies, as a cost-effective tool that is easy to deploy and implement.
