Mindjet Releases MindManager X5 Pro 5.1 to Provide Tablet PC Support and Enterprise Application Integration

New Version Lays Foundation for Future MindManager-Based Solutions to Help Office and Mobile Workers Go from Data to Decisions

LARKSPUR, Calif., March 4, 2004 -- Mindjet today announced the availability of MindManager X5 Pro Release 5.1. This latest version is the platform on which Mindjet will deliver, with partners, XML-enabled enterprise productivity solutions. The first solution, to be released shortly, integrates with Salesforce.com. It will improve sales professionals' ability to quickly identify and overcome barriers to closing sales. The 5.1 release also underscores Mindjet's commitment to mobile computing by making Tablet PC and Pocket PC support a standard MindManager feature.

"We are trying to solve the problem of how desktop and mobile device users can quickly access key data to make line-of-business decisions," says Mindjet chief technical officer Mike Jetter. "Many applications on the market efficiently collect, arrange, and store enterprise-based data. But MindManager fills a critical gap, pulling select information out of databases and into a visual interface that enables brainstorming and planning. MindManager initiates a process that effectively turns information into decisions and action."

As with the Salesforce.com integration, future MindManager-based solutions will help users build interactive, visual representations of data, information, and ideas. This combination of information is critical to daily business decision-making. The MindManager solutions will benefit business teams by shortening decision cycles and significantly improving time-to-action, leading to improved business productivity.

MindManager X5 and X5 Pro Release 5.1, compatible with both desktop and Tablet PCs, is free for current MindManager X5 series customers at http://www.mindjet.com. Physical product will be available beginning March 10. New customers can purchase MindManager X5 Release 5.1 for $199 and MindManager X 5 Pro Release 5.1 for $299. The new MindManager X5 for Pocket PC is free to current MindManager Mobile users and otherwise available for $49.
