Copper Project is one of the best online project management and communication tools are available for businesses of all types. Creating and assigning the task to other team members becomes easy as it does on its own easily.

MindManager is great in big change projects where a lot of meetings and decisions are being made over time. In that scenario there are likely a lot of other apps supporting dev, testing, etc. But MM is still more like Six Sigma than anything else in the market and there are still a lot of big companies with SS-like cultures where a strong core tool gets more buy-in. I think it's less valuable for shorter term projects.

  • Outlining
  • Connecting/organizing similar items/ideas, etc.
  • Helping me stay focused on the big picture of my novel instead of getting lost in the minutia.
  • Helping me move from the big picture to the details when I need to.
  • Organizing my daily/weekly/monthly/annual work projects.

Cons
Element Software
  • The biggest drawback that Copper Project has that it becomes slow at times [in my experience].
  • Secondly, to manage anything in the platform I have to make a ticket every time to make any changes which are frustrating for me a lot.
  • [In my experience] it usually becomes clunky and slow while dealing with large requests which need to be change and functionality needs to improve more.

  • It can be difficult to print your mind map in a font that is large enough to easily read.
  • Certain features for first-time users are a bit daunting and there is a slight learning curve.
  • The help options can be enhanced.

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.

Integration of the Copper Project is amazing. It is designed on such a great module that it can easily integrate with any other software. I have a lot of software already in my organization which we are using to handle different processes in the organization, Copper Project easily integrated with them and gives me all in one platform to manage all of my activities on one platform which is a great help for me.

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.

Return on Investment

  • This feature is also helping me a lot in making project structure and prioritizing things according to the flow of work, which is great as it gives clear path what to do next.
  • Customer support of Copper Project is very professional.
  • I recently had some problems while using the platform, they listened to the problem carefully and responded with a more feasible and workable solution within the limited time frame, which gives me the confidence to use the platform more in-depth.

  • 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.
  • This software's cross-functional capability allowed 10 engineers to create their projects directly within their own environment without use of a virtual machine.
