Obviously, Visio is considered the Gold standard, But you are locked into the MS ecosystem. Lucidchart felt less polished and cumbersome to use. ConceptDraw UI was a bit more cluttered and the learning curves were a bit step.

I have used over a dozen apps of this sort across 50 years of computing. None are even close to being as good!!

Convert meeting notes rapidly and move them around to create a good sequence of ideas. Then add documentation: tables, notes, hyperlinks to website. Playing around with concepts helps with better defining the problems. Once the parameters are found, solution is easier to figure.

Cons
Wondershare Technology
  • One-click auto-export feature to a preferred format. Currently, you'd have to go through at least 3 steps to export)
  • More ready-to-use Icon libraries
  • API to adjust vector graphics
  • AI augmentation to provide user input during complex diagramming

  • 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.

Needed to contact the support team as I had lost license details. Their response was fast, professional and what's more, very helpful. All the needed data was sent to me and I was able to reinstall Wondershare EdrawMax again.

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.

As an individual author, I don't have a need for many of the team and other functions of MM. For my use, as much as I love it, the cost has become prohibitive. I plan to research cheaper alternatives if MM no longer supports my version (MM 2020).

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

  • Intellectual leverage
  • Develops a large-scale trust (good graphics is always appreciated even if its complex to read)
  • Impactful visualization (hard to enumerate)

  • 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.
