ConceptDraw Business Suite
CS Odessa has begun selling the ConceptDraw Business Suite, a combination of three separate applications aimed at increasing work efficiency. ConceptDraw 7 is used for producing business graphics, including everything from charts and floor plans to network diagrams. Project 3 meanwhile handles project management, and has recently had a major redesign to improve its interface and options. The last third of the suite is MINDMAP Pro, which is used to create, record and share information throughout a business. In August the Mac version is being upgraded to MINDMAP 5, which will be free to those who buy the suite beforehand. The whole package currently costs $500 and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
