About MindGenius


MindGenius is an on-premise project management solution that helps users to capture and analyze information.

It allows users to generate reports, plan and write dissertations, organize information and manage project plans.

MindGenius enables users to create visual maps of project timelines, document project requirements and assign resources. Users can generate progress reports and then share project updates using MindGenius' built-in presentation mode. 

The solution finder feature helps users to manage issues during project execution through a guided brainstorming module. MindGenius also offers mind mapping, which allows users to create visual maps of project information, possible setbacks and task dependencies. Users can also employ the mind maps to plan alternative methods to resolve a particular problem.

Highly Intuitive and Simple

Pros

It is so easy to use to create maps of various sizes. It is like Visio on steroids and SO much easier to use. Type and enter to add data fast, click and drag to move, multi select, tons of formatting from font to color to cell borders. Plus you can assign people tasks, timelines, create Gantt charts and so much more.

Cons

2018 currently does not allow double clicking to highlight text in a cell but I am told this will be corrected. Otherwise, nothing.

Valuable Project Software Tool

Pros

I like the ability to jump right in to the software to organize thoughts, shared information and data as it received or gathered. The ability to organize the data and to reduce or enlarge the scope shared means I can drill down or fly up to share as much or as little as I need too.

Cons

I'm not to keen on the color scheme. I which that was more customizable . Color breakout in the Gantt chart could work great when shared with a large Mind Map.

Management in visual way with tasks, projects and complex topics

powerful management supporter in many areas - clear view of central topic, easy way to present relations with context information (notes,attachments,links,...)

Pros

I like MindGenius for templates library very much - it's great time saver and BIG step to start mapping for new users.
MindGenius has advanced tool as Question set - to develop maps very fast.
It's easy to add contextual information to tasks - attachments, links, resources, icons,etc.
User can use advanced options as:
- creating maps based on categories or resources,
- presenting information as Gantt chart,
- sync map with MS Outlook (tasks)
- quick filter map document.

Cons

It would be great to see more options of "document view" - like calendar (except Gantt chart) or opportunity to add tags & group of tags to map topics.

My go-to solution for early-stage project management

For me, it remains my go-to solution for cooperatively mapping out small or early stage projects that are subject to significant change.

Pros

I have long been a proponent of MindGenius, the mind map functionality is top-notch, but for me the real utility is the gantt chart feature. Being able to alternate between mind map and gantt chart allows ready rearrangement of work packages on the smaller and earlier stage projects that I manage.
Its ability to calculate the critical path sets it apart from a lot of similar tools, and the price point is good as well.

Cons

It can be very resource intensive, and rearranging or calculating the critical path after a change can tax the processing power of some laptops.

Most loved computer application

I have used this product since its initial launch and it just gets better and better. The support, which I have hardly ever needed, is also great and very responsive.

Pros

I have used this product since it was launched nearly 20 years ago. I love it and use it for all sorts of applications from writing business proposals to planning projects. Would not be without it.

Cons

None...it is just a brilliant product and makes my life easier and more productive. I know that is not a 'con' but that is because there are no cons to this fantastic tool.

Best tool for note taking at meetings

Just been at meeting today where delegates were impressed at me making mind map of notes and demonstrated the exporting feature and fabulous templates - expect new orders!

Pros

Everything about it is fantastic and the export feature is great to create reports. More praise is superfluous but need to meet the character count!

Cons

there really isn’t anything that I can think of that is negative! What’s the point of adding more when there isn’t anything negative to say!!!

Great for capturing and organizing thoughts for meetings, presentation, projects, and more

Pros

The interface is both fast enough and intuitive enough to support real-time editing with groups of people. The integration with Microsoft Office speeds the process of utilizing the content.

Cons

No Android version and iOS version has limited capability. Web-based version moved away from mindmapping focus to project management (seems great for that use case).

Great to illustrate complex estates

Pros

We use this software to visualize complex estate structures for high net worth indiviudals. It works well for this and the clients appreciate seeing it this way.

Cons

I don't like that you have to us the sidebars and bottom bars to adjust your screen view. I wish you could zoom in/out with a roller ball on the mouse and click and drag to move your screen view.

Fantastic tool for brainstorming and project management

At our company we use Mind Genius software as an integral part of our improvement techniques. The benefits to our improvement teams, Six Sigma projects and failure investigations have been one of the main contributors in successfully achieving some of our business targets. The report function is a brilliant tool for summarising reports. We use this to inform and communicate the status of projects. The question sets are great and the templates are good for providing ideas for projects and how to structure the projects. All in all we have improved our business through Mind Genius.

MindGenius is my 'go to' tool for planning and managing projects

MindGenius is a great tool that helps me plan and manage projects. I use it for almost everything from personal 'to do' lists, when I'm doing research and business planning. I even used it to project manage the extension on my house. Pros - Mind maps easily convert into tasks and there is even a Gantt view. I also really like the exporting feature and often use this to bring in MS project files. Cons - I can only use it on my PC, although there is an iPad version, and I believe they are working on an online version.

Very intuitive and comprehensive piece of software

Great bit of software that links seamlessly between mind mapping, project management and presentations to name but a few. Easy and quick to use with extensive functionality. Very responsive customer service and support on the end of the phone. Would thoroughly recommend using if involved with projects, programmes, portfolios or just simply wanting to facilitate brainstorming / blue sky thinking workshops.

Great tool for improvement and project work

We utilise the software during improvement and project work and this provides a great platform for brainstorming and idea building. Being able to then drop the mind map into project planning tool is fantastic. The report tool is great for internal communication about progress and workload.
