    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.

    This is the single best tool to help visual learners express themselves on complex matters in my opinion. I have tried and used other programs that have certain elements, but this is far and away from the best option for me. The more complex the problem, the more that using this pays off. I tend to start in almost brainstorming mode and then move to group items and either arrange them in terms of process flow or simply organizationally.

    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.

    • Great to segment things out (projects, organizational charts, processes, workloads, etc) and gives you a full picture of the job.
    • It is user friendly, simple to use, and powerful.
    • MS Office and Teams integration is great. Allows for easy collaboration.
    • Great GUI and visuals
    • Excellent method for project planning and brainstorming

    Cons

    Clearview InFocus

    • The report module can include more canned reports.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MindManager

    • I find formatting a challenge. Example, make all the boxes the same format and fonts so when you add a box, it understands the format of the top level box.
    • I have played around with some of the templates but find creating my own each time is better route. The project plan template is very good but I find myself deleting boxes and again, takes more time than creating a new map every time.
    • I try to get colleagues to use MM but they are intimidated by the UI. I am really comfortable with it but to them it can look more complex than it really is.

    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.

    The application is quick and responsive. We are able to produce mindmaps and reports with ease. The program is not complicated at all and integrates well with software and programs like Microsoft Outlook and Teams, which we truly appreciate.

    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.

    I prefer InFocus over other products.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MindManager

    Both are equally good. Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect is used to get the models in a more technical format in comparison to the MindManager. MindManager is easier to use in comparison to Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect. MindManager makes collaboration easy and can be understood by a layman and does not need to have specific software training.

    A team can collaborate on the same project but cannot create a shared project file. It would be helpful for that feature to be added.

    • Improves efficiency.

    • When scope planning before I was introduced to this tool, I needed to make one master Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for the entire project and move on. With MindMapper, I typically generate about 20 WBS-like charts throughout the project, which encouraged conversation with staff members. The major key in such ease of use has been some well thought out and very intuitive keystroke planning that allows me to keep up with the free flow of ideas.
