If these features already exist, i cannot find them and I consider myself to be rather tech savvy.,9,I have not tracked the positive or negative impact of MG on my overall business objectives. I have successfully used it in the aspects of my personal and professional management. MG helps me stay on track with my research and personal editing. It keeps me accountable so that I meet my deadlines. Although I have not applied a dollar value to it, it helps me signficantly.,,OneNote, Microsoft Office 365, Dropbox, IBM SPSS,No

I personally use MindGenius to organize my research, brainstorm, plot out goals, and share ideas with others. At this juncture, it is a tool that I use independently--not one that my entire department uses.

[It's] Wonderful for small group or individual planning, brainstorming, explaining, projecting etc. It is also great for reporting or sharing findings of outcomes whether research or business related. It has a free viewer so that if you are presenting on a different computer, the viewer will allow the visuals to be shared.

It is not ideal for collaboration unless everyone has this software.
