[prMac.com] Odessa, Ukraine - Visual productivity software maker CS Odessa today is pleased to announce ConceptDraw Solution Park. The innovative new online resource center features integrated business productivity solutions that bundle ConceptDraw software, templates, and "how-to" guides to get business users up and running quickly. ConceptDraw Solution Park is being launched in conjunction with the ConceptDraw Office 2, the company's new integrated solution for project management.
ConceptDraw Solution Park extends the value of ConceptDraw Office 2.0, which includes the seamlessly integrated ConceptDraw MINDMAP for mind mapping and brainstorming, ConceptDraw PROJECT comprehensive project management software, and ConceptDraw PRO for business diagramming and scoreboard development and display. Through the ConceptDraw Solution Browser in ConceptDraw Office 2.0, users can view available solutions on ConceptDraw Solution Park and click on the solution they want. The ConceptDraw Solution Browser then automatically loads any software, templates and guides supporting the chosen solution. Now users can focus on meeting business goals instead of integrating technology.
The initial release of ConceptDraw Solution Park features solutions in three professional areas: Project Management, Universal Diagramming, and Business Productivity. Each solution provides instant access to task-specific software tools, templates and guides for business activities - for example, create a team assignment calendar, run a brainstorming meeting, plan project phases, and create a project PowerPoint presentation for management, to name a few. All of these solutions are based on the real-world use cases of hundreds of thousands of business professionals already taking advantage of ConceptDraw software. Additional professional areas will be added in subsequent updates, and third-party solutions will begin joining those from CS Odessa in 2011.
"Visual productivity applications present a tremendous opportunity for resource-strapped business teams to work smarter. Unfortunately, users' lack of knowledge about these valuable tools too often leaves them underutilized," said Gregory Zhukov, CS Odessa CEO. "ConceptDraw Solution Park addresses this issue head on for the first time by providing an easy-to-navigate online resource center for pre-integrated solutions. Now with bundled tools and templates just a click away, business professionals can begin improving their productivity in minutes."
"As a professional business user of ConceptDraw Office software for some time, I'm finding that the addition of ConceptDraw Solution Park to my project management practices has raised the bar to a whole new level," said Wallace Tait, information management consultant and founder of Visual Mapper, "Not only have the solutions helped to restructure my current project management activities, but the single-click access to ConceptDraw-based solutions has enabled me to create, manage and continuously improve more effective processes within my business practice."
