Toronto-based company YourPrivacy, a part of F.M.C. Dimensional Developments Corp., has found a new way to help their clients develop privacy policies using MindManager 9 and Mindjet Catalyst visualization software by Mindjet.
The small Toronto-based privacy firm uses the mind-mapping software to help them plan how to help other companies with security solutions and privacy. The software has helped increase YourPrivacy’s productivity by 400 per cent and boost sales by 30 per cent, according to MindJet.
“It is perfect for entrepreneurs and small businesses, where a person wears a lot of hats,” Michael Deutch, the chief evangelist for San Francisco-based MindJet, said.
MindManager 9 is for mapping thoughts on the desktop, while Catalyst puts those ideas online. Catalyst allows for multiple people to add their ideas at the same time. YourPrivacy’s customer can view the “mind maps” in a Web browser.
YourPrivacy helps small to medium-sized businesses plan manage their assets and organize themselves. YourPrivacy used MindManager 9 to help break down the components of these companies and arrange them in a way that would maximize their productivity. It also helps analyze privacy gaps, develop privacy policies, and prevent privacy breaches of companies.
Mario Morel, president of YourPrivacy, said the company takes a “top-down” approach, breaking client companies into groups that work within it, then breaking down those groups, until it gets to individuals within the firm. By doing this they analyze the problems within a company and see how they can better work to help the company as a whole.
“It is easy to apply changes and move objects around,” Morel said.
The software is also compatible with Microsoft programs. Users can attach Word documents in Catalyst, for example.
