Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB) July 15, 2008 — NovaMind Software announces
the immediate availability of Merlin 2.6, which includes web publishing
capabilities so that others can collaborate remotely on project management
tasks, no matter what operating system they are using.
Merlin project management software for Mac has long been recognized as the
leading professional project management application for Mac computers, and
there have been many requests to make its powerful project management
features available to people working on other operating systems.
Merlin 2 Web Sharing
With the Web Sharing module, users can publish project files over the Web
either as a live HTML document so as to collaborate with other users over
the Web, or as a static HTML page to share with a project team and other
This feature opens the door for all users who wish to use Merlin but can’t
because they are tied to an operating system other than Mac OS X. By
publishing Merlin project files using the Merlin application and its Web
Module add-on, other users can access the project and collaborate on it
using their Web browser.
Projects that have been shared using Web Sharing have just about all the
features of Merlin available to the whole team on the Web. There is also
built in support for assigning users different permissions so that the
appropriate information can be seen and edited by different people.
The update from earlier versions of Merlin 2 is free, but a separate
license is required for the Web sharing capabilities. The Web sharing
licenses can be purchased from the NovaMind online store.
Merlin 2.6 also has a wide range of bug fixes, and enhancements to things
like Microsoft Project import, and application of styles.
The unique combination of NovaMind mind maps and Merlin brings a powerful
extra dimension to project management, allowing much improved planning,
staff buy-in and involvement in the whole process. One of the tenets of
project management is the increasing cost of errors or omissions in the
plans at each stage of the project. By starting the project with
brainstorming and Mind Mapping, project scoping is clearly defined early
on, problems are resolved during the planning process, and the team is able
to have input into identifying issues before they cost a lot of time and
Merlin can both import and export NovaMind mind maps providing the best of
Mind Mapping, visual planning and communication, as well as the best of
project, risk and issue management.
Couple NovaMind and Merlin with the resources of the Apple iPhoto, Address
Book, and iCal applications, and it makes a very powerful solution for the
whole of the project from inception to delivery.
NovaMind has been the top Mind Mapping program available on Mac computers
for the last 6 years, and is rapidly gaining recognition in the Windows
market. NovaMind is designed to work in with Merlin for project management
needs. NovaMind makes Mind Mapping intuitive and fun.
