Meanwhile software programmes were introduced to the market, which automate the process of drawing, colouring, making connections, and adding-in pictures. You can easily establish everything, save changes again, and display it whenever you want.

An additional advantage of these programmes is that an extra functionality was added for, for example, brainstorming and project management.

Furthermore there is an option to export information stored in Mind Maps (1 click on the button) to the Microsoft Office (*) product family, including:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Project
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft PowerPoint

and some can even generate a website of a Mind Map with one click on the button (as this website of aHa!Coaching).

The more professional Mind Mapping packs can even be integrated smoothly with ERP systems.
