Major Milestones: CS Odessa Makes 2012 “Software Magazine” 500 for 4th Time, featured on

ConceptDraw developers celebrating a banner year that includes ranking in Software Magazine’s list for the fourth year in a row and joining Biggerplate’s online mind mapping library.

October 09, 2012, San Jose, CA — CS Odessa is proud to have been ranked in Software Magazine’s 30th anniversary listing of the top 500 software companies worldwide. This marks CS Odessa’s fourth consecutive year row on the list, the result of continued commitment to customer service and satisfaction. CS Odessa was also listed by Software 500 as being one of the 10 fastest growth companies sized between 5 — 10 million dollars.

CS Odessa’s flagship ConceptDraw Productivity Line continues to attract customers with its innovative approach to knowledge organization and project planning. Now in its second generation, the ConceptDraw Office suite (consisting of ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7, ConceptDraw PROJECT v6, and ConceptDraw PRO v9) has improved in all facets, with enhanced stability and tighter integration between its three components. Also new for ConceptDraw Office v2 is the ConceptDraw Solution Park, offering even more value in the form of an ever-growing online collection of business-specific plug-ins, accessed via the included ConceptDraw Solution Browser for no additional charge.

Moreover, with a 14% growth in sales from the previous year, CS Odessa has qualified for the Top 10 Growth Companies in the $5-$10 Million in Revenue category. The company has worked tirelessly to grow their market share since launching ConceptDraw Office v2 over a year ago, releasing more than 35 new Solutions to the ConceptDraw Solution Park, reducing the retail price of ConceptDraw MINDMAP, and simultaneously further reducing the price of all of their products for academics and nonprofits. ConceptDraw’s standard named-user license offers dramatically lower procurement costs than the competition by allowing users to install on up to two systems, without being restricted to a single OS (ConceptDraw runs on Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS 10.6+). And the recently updated ConceptDraw MindWave plug-in for SAP StreamWork makes possible the dream of free collaborative mind mapping over the web. As they charge ahead full-steam, CS Odessa remains committed to further improving every aspect of the ConceptDraw brand, and bringing their customers the highest levels of productivity, value, and support.

CS Odessa’s clout in the market is further underscored this year by being featured on the web’s premier mind mapping community, Biggerplate. Mind maps from Biggerplate’s libraries are utilized the world over by businesses and universities of all sizes. Now, with the introduction of ConceptDraw MINDMAP, Biggerplate’s roundup of the market leading mind mapping products is complete. ConceptDraw MINDMAP is a natural fit for Biggerplate thanks to its ability to import and export from a variety of file formats utilized by other mind mapping programs. ConceptDraw MINDMAP integrates seamlessly with the other products in the ConceptDraw Office suite to offer a project management and business diagramming solution unparalleled at its price point.
