Overall Satisfaction with ConceptDraw MINDMAP

This is a great piece of software for generating or saving brainstorming sessions. It has multiple templates and samples for inspiration, and works with most of the ConceptDraw solutions, giving you a huge range of options for graphics to make professional quality diagrams. For my use, the best part is the basic interface when you open a new map, it lets you start typing and adding new branches to your ideas through a simple tab/shift-tab. When you're not around a whiteboard, this is the next best thing. I often will not even bother saving the maps I create, it just gives me a place to work through ideas and their relationships.
  • Brainstorming
  • Documenting hierarchies
  • Interface can be a bit cluttered, takes some work to use efficiently for more than basic maps.
  • More efficient brainstorming
The sales team is very responsive and willing to help out with questions, however the community of users is not as large as some other products so it can be difficult to find answers to more complex problems.
