Project Plans

Differential: the look of it is very inviting, its very easy to change information and the tool provides a clear view of project milestones and deadlines.

The tool does not replace the Microsoft Project (PC) or Merlin 2 (MAC) because it has some limitations. Its forte is the rapid creation of a timeline which looks great, without any Microsoft Project knowledge (and its high costs).

Creating sitemaps

MindMeister is a tool for creating sitemaps. This tool offers the possibility of placing representative images and comments on each node of the map, facilitating the visualization and understanding of the organizational chart. 

Differential: Users can edit the sitemap at the same time online, and view the changes being made in real time.
