Mind Technologies Introduces Visual Mind 9(TM), Next Generation of Mind Mapping(R) Software

OSLO, Norway, May 22 /-- Mind Technologies, a leading developer of mind mapping(R) and visualization software, today introduced the latest version of its award-winning software: Visual Mind(TM) 9. Featuring many new improvements, Visual Mind 9 holds its position as a leading tool for organizing and visualizing thoughts, ideas and information.

Along with Visual Mind 9, Mind Technologies also introduced Visual Mind 9 Server, which allows several Visual Mind users to work together on the same Visual Mind maps in real-time. "This is a huge step forward for Visual Mind", said Kjetil Ovesen, CEO at Mind Technologies. "Visual Mind has boosted personal efficiency for almost 10 years. Now, Visual Mind 9 and the Visual Mind Server allow teams and corporations to use the flexible and easy-to-use interface of Visual Mind as a platform for communication, real-time collaboration and information sharing.

Besides offering a multi-user environment, Visual Mind 9 also features a number of significant enhancements to the single user. The new Microsoft Excel(R) feature allows users to view and edit Excel(R) spreadsheet data inside Visual Mind. The selected spreadsheet data will be shown as an integrated part of the Visual Mind map, allowing users to see the figures in the logical context.

One feature that set Visual Mind apart from the competition is calculation values, which allow users to apply values to individual branches in a Visual Mind map. Useful when doing estimates, cost calculations, etc.

Also unique to Visual Mind 9, is the support for web snapshots. When a user inserts a web link into the Visual Mind map, Visual Mind 9 can visualize the link as a small thumbnail of the actual web page, rather than a plain web browser icon.

Another enhancement of Visual Mind 9 is the ability to apply filter. This allows users to hide parts of the map that are not important at the moment, to provide special focus to information that requires special attention.

Other improvements in Visual Mind 9 include updated map design, improved search features, improved Microsoft Outlook(R) linking, and more than 2000 new images in the Visual Mind image library.
