    Hive will fit right in to any workflow that manages multiple projects. It's also a great fit for collaboration on a per-project basis as external users can collaborate with paid users. Across a very large team it would take more planning on how to fit multiple workflows and groups into the workspace but it can be done.

    MindMeister is ideally suited for building mind maps, site maps, or similar types of data maps in the cloud without needing to install extra software. I find that it isn't quite as ideal for other types of diagrams (ERDs, flowcharts, etc) as some other tools, though it definitely can handle those things as well.

    • The UI is well laid out and easy to use. The workflow makes perfect sense and makes creating tasks a breeze.
    • The collaboration features make brainstorming not only easy but fun! Everyone enjoys using the tool, which was not the case with other collaboration software we used.
    • I love being able to get all of my thoughts and ideas on the screen to see them and then be able to connect them in a logical way.

    Cons

    Hive Technology

    • You can't move urgent actions to the top.
    • It takes a little too much time to load up on the desktop version.
    • There's definitely room for improvement in keyboard shortcuts.

    • I think that the free plan should offer a bit more terms of features to make the testing experience more engaging.
    • My experience using the App version was not so good when compared to the web version of it. I feel more comfortable using it in my notebook.
    • Paid plans could be more flexible to support small or temporary demands.

    Usability

    Hive Technology

    I love Hive so much because it has made a huge difference regarding team communication and project management at the same time. We experienced almost no bugs and in the few cases that we did have some trouble, the customer service team was very responsive and solved our problems very quickly.

    Support Rating

    Hive Technology

    Our CSR is easily accessible and they have support built into the app itself. They also have a pretty robust support site. We also took advantage of the free trial and learned so much by putting Hive through the paces and figuring out the best way to mold it to our needs.

    Never had an issue with customer support, though we never really needed anything major as far as technical help. I do not believe they offer 24 hour customer support but we don't need it as MindMeister is not the type of tool we need need 24 hour a day support for. Overall, very happy with the level of support.

    Alternatives Considered

    Hive Technology

    I would say that in comparison to Asana, Hive is a better interface an UI. I think Asana is more robust in terms of what it can do in conjunction with Confluence but I think Hive is a better entry-level model for new employees. Hive is much simpler and more straight forward and its integration with Slack is preferred.

    I have also used LucidChart and Google Draw to create mind maps and concept maps in the past. I think that MindMeister is by far the cleanest and most user friendly of the three. Google Draw does not have anywhere near the same functionality. LucidChart tends to be clunky and the options to create your map are not always clear and intuitive.

    Return on Investment

    Hive Technology

    • Positive ROI comes from our whole team being on the same board. We used to have separate boards for each group.

    MeisterLabs

    • The most positive result of using MindMeister is a visualization of each step in work and connections between different nodes(ideas, steps).
    • This greatly simplifies the work, especially collaborative work, since it is easier to show it once than to explain things many times.
    • Negative impact: lack of offline desktop version.
