Clearview InFocus

Compared to other accounting software, I think InFocus offers more functionalities and it's very user friendly. It's a cloud based solution you can easily access remotely, and the connection speed is quite fast. It integrates project management data and financial data, which is important for an engineering company like us.

MindManager

I recommend MindManager to all of my clients, students, and partners. When they see how I use the tool in a live demonstration and can see how it supports the work flow and conversation, they want to try it for themselves. I have recommended MindManager to more than 40 or 50 people in the last 2-3 years.

Pros

Clearview InFocus

  • Functionality - compared to some other software, it's a breeze to make modifications in InFocus.
  • Integration - it's a pretty smooth implementation from our legacy system Deltek.
  • User friendly - it's cloud based, easy to access from anywhere, connection speed is fast.

  • Organizing & reorganizing ideas into actionable plans: the mapping workflow makes it incredibly easy to get ideas onto the page, and then group or reorganize topics.
  • Integration with Outlook: calendar items are fully linked and searchable. I use the Resource list to find notes related to a specific person instantly, even years in the past!
  • Smart filters by tags, icons or label: instantly filter down to specific types of information using a nearly limitless variety of word or icon tags.
  • Task roll-up: quickly see progress on multi-step projects.

Cons

Clearview InFocus

  • The report module can include more canned reports.

MindManager

  • Drag and drop within the map sometimes is tricky, making placement, or rearrangement of items frustrating. Maybe a "snap to" type feature could help.
  • Photoshop integration would be great. Specifically, adding a quick insert button to add a Photoshop image and/or a video.
  • Microsoft Project integration would be very helpful.

I feel the main issues of the old Mindjet seem to be gone with the
Corel purchase. With the huge advance of sharing via browser HTML even 1
user can affect many. And, actually, using MM kind of forced my rigid
brain to rethink how I categorize and classify information/projects.
The
idea of paying $69USD for an annual cost is more than fair and a great
model for Corel/Mindjet to keep rolling out improvements!

MindManager is very intuitive. The user interface is not cluttered and the ribbon icons are easy to understand. Several excellent "how-to" videos are available on the MindManager site as well as on YouTube. MindManager starts quickly and the user interface is very responsive. Launching other programs from MindManager such as Excel is very fast and issue free. The browsing feature is lightning fast. The drag-and-drop capability is also very fast and reliable.

I have called technical support a few times. During the COVID Crisis, I called a few times repeatedly due to a rush request. The technical support guy called me back in minutes. He somehow knew that I had called repeatedly and wanted to make sure my issue was resolved immediately

The videos are not well categorized...I had to do a bit of digging to get what I wanted and many videos on older versions. If Mindjet was to improve the titles used that would help.

Alternatives Considered

Clearview InFocus

I prefer InFocus over other products.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

MindManager

MindManager is a more mature product than most other products that we have reviewed or tried for mind mapping and project planning. It is very feature-rich, and since it has similar styles to the Microsoft suite of products, users are familiar with the interface and find it easy to navigate. The biggest drawback with MindManager is its inability to support a project file that the entire team can work on. Each file has to be owned by 1 person, and collaboration has to be scheduled in "co-editing sessions" which are only available through an additional paid add-on. I do not recommend this product for project teams.

  • MM is perfect for catching random and not so random thoughts on the fly - and then refining them later. It is also very useful for cross-referencing ideas and issues between multiple areas of interest.
  • MM saves a great deal of time and worries when it can be relied on for catching and retrieving thoughts and tasks on the fly.
  • MM is a significant contributor to making more reasonable and logical arguments.
