Mindjet, a software provider, announced Mindjet Connect. Mindjet Connect is a new SaaS platform that helps people achieve insight into their work by visually tying together all of the ideas, information, and people related to any project or plan. Mindjet Connect, which allows teams of people to collaborate with MindManager, is a hosted software-as-a-service offering that delivers three levels of functionality: MindManager mind mapping application; secure online workspaces; and unified communications tools like instant meetings, messaging and whiteboards. Teams can now use Mindjet Connect to collaborate on maps in real time. From their map or workspace, individuals can then chat with other team members and launch web conferencing to present information, share their desktops, and record notes collaboratively in an online whiteboard.
