MindMatters Releases Major New Version of Innovation Management Solution

MindMatters, a leader in solutions for managing innovation for over a decade, announced the release of major updates to their suite. The new version includes better compatibility, a new user interface, enhanced reporting, and stronger security.

Oct. 7, 2010 — MindMatters, a top provider of solutions for Innovation and IP Management, recently released version 11.0 of their industry-leading software, Innovator™.

Used primarily in medium-sized to large organizations, Innovator helps companies reign in the complex process of innovation. The new version offers features such as a redesigned user interface and full compatibility with Internet Explorer 8. Other updates include stronger security and a new API for connecting with external data sources, portals, and other enterprise systems.

Another major enhancement to Innovator is a reworked set of reporting tools including integration with SAP’s Crystal Reports*, which allows organizations to design and create fully-customized reports.

MindMatters’ CEO John Gabrick said, “Innovator’s new version includes several pieces that our customers have been asking for. All of which, we agree, will help them to focus on developing new concepts and products much faster.”
