Mindjet Re-envisions Mobile for Professionals Who Manage Teams and Projects On-the-Go

LONDON, November 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Mindjet 'Tasks' app combines elegant user experience with powerful features to unite mobile teams around critical work

Mindjet® today announced the availability of their purpose-built app for mobile team and project management, Mindjet Tasks. The redesigned app has been completely reconfigured so that professionals can, with a swipe of a finger, manage team projects and tasks, at any time and from any location. The app is immediately available on iTunes® and will be updated for iPad® and Android™ devices later in Q4.

The age of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is here:  Nine out of 10 workers carry a smart phone at work(1), and 80 percent continue to work after leaving the office(2). Increasingly, these team-centric workers have been accessing mobile devices to check in on projects and email, whether they were in meetings or on the road.  Yet, effective team communications and project management have been missing.

With more teams working virtually, increased coordination and real time updates are critical to keep activities on track − whether its managing marketing campaigns, recruiting new hires  or planning project launches.  Mindjet Tasks empowers the distributed workforce with a mobile hub to manage projects, tasks, and teams in an easy-to-use and intuitive interface. With Mindjet mobile teams can now innovate and execute on their best ideas, together, from their smart phones.

"Our research shows that most organisations are concerned about meeting the evolving needs of inherently mobile roles, such as sales and field service," said Chris Silva, an analyst with Altimeter Group. "These groups have distinct needs around not just consuming information on devices, but also creating and sharing information. The companies that deliver upon these productivity needs stand to capture a broad, dedicated user base."

With the latest release, Mindjet advances its popular mobile app, overhauling the user experience and adding features such as:

  • Mobile team and project modules that enable project and team management from the mobile device
  • Instinctual gesture controls for easy updates, task tracking, comments and team management
  • Ability to share information and plans, assign priorities and track tasks with multiple team members regardless of location
  • Real-time updates on documents, progress and plans, including team comments
  • Patent pending auto-prioritisation of tasks to keep you and your team on the right track
  • Instant connection with Mindjet web and desktop to update or add to your latest ideas and plans

"Mindjet Tasks does for teams what Clear and Any.Do do for the individual. It combines elegance and efficiency to bring people and plans together, meeting the evolving work needs of the always-on-the-go mobile professional," said Mindjet CMO Jascha Kaykas-Wolff. With Mindjet, professionals can be more productive, creative and organized to quite simply, work inspired."

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
