Nov 24, 2004, 00:00 ET from Mindjet

    LARKSPUR, Calif., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindjet, the leading provider of
 software for visualizing and managing information, today announced a
 partnership with CommerceQuest to develop a MindManager Accelerator Solution
 for CommerceQuest 's TRAXION EnterpriseBPMS. The accelerator solution provides
 line-of-business users with a clear, visual interface within which to quickly
 create and modify business processes. The solution helps lower overall
 process-introduction costs by reducing the need for process analysts, and by
 shortening from weeks to days the time needed to complete business process
     This is the second Mindjet accelerator solution announced in the past six
 months that uses MindManager X5 Pro to create concise, easily modified visual
 representations of complex information.  MindManager for salesforce.com,
 released as a Preview Edition in July, enables sales professionals to
 dynamically create visual representations of customer relationship management
 data stored in salesforce.com.
     "The CommerceQuest and salesforce.com solutions are the result of a
 strategic decision Mindjet made two years ago," said Mindjet CEO Robert
 Gordon. "We decided in 2002 to create accelerator solutions leveraging
 MindManager's service-based architecture. Our map interface now enables users
 to visualize and interact with business information resources from enterprise
 content to Web Services. And they can do it all in a single, easy-to-learn
 visual interface."
     MindManager for TRAXION EnterpriseBPMS enables users to rapidly build
 business process models. By simply dragging and dropping process objects and
 linking them together -- and without any underlying technical programming
 skills -- users can build and modify "visual process maps," which then execute
 on TRAXION EnterpriseBPMS.
     "By aligning our expertise with Mindjet, CommerceQuest continues to
 demonstrate our commitment to providing the most complete Enterprise BPM
 solution on the market," said Mike Forster, chairman and CEO of CommerceQuest.
 "Our integration of MindManager as a visualization engine will allow corporate
 customers to leverage previous IT investments, achieve greater ROI and
 optimize business performance."
     Mindjet is currently working with other partners to use MindManager as a
 visualization engine for enterprise data, business processes and online
 knowledge bases. These forthcoming accelerator solutions will enable companies
 to conduct ever more effective planning, collaboration, and business process
