Mindjet, a provider of software meant to help users visualize and organize information and processes, on Wednesday launched its new MindManager 6 Mac software for Apple’s Mac OS X operating system, according to the company’s May 31 release posted on SourceWire.

Individuals or groups of people can use the MindManager 6 software to capture the highlights of brainstorming sessions, and then insert links to various sources—like websites, e-mail addresses or specific file folders—to add depth and relevancy to their thoughts, according to the release. The information is organized in a simple map interface, which allows users to generate specific tasks and due dates, and then assign them to the appropriate areas of the map. All information collected within MindManager 6 Mac can also be easily shared with other parties.

“One of the biggest challenges companies face is finding better ways to stimulate and then harness innovative thinking,” said Robert Gordon, Mindjet’s chief executive, in a statement. “MindManager 6 Mac sparks new ideas—and then helps quickly turn those ideas into blueprints for action.”

According to Mindjet, the software has a user base of roughly 750,000 individuals with businesses ranging from small companies to international firms, and that number is growing.

The new software starts at roughly $280.

The system requirements are as follows:

  • Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or greater

  • Mac machine with PowerPC G3, G4 or G5 processor

  • 733 Mhz

  • 256 MB RAM

  • 70 MB hard disk space; 800-by-600 monitor resolution
