EssentialPIM Pro Network- a Popular PIM on Steroids

Linden, NJ., July 24, 2007 Ц EPIM Ltd. (www.essentialpim.com), the leading provider of scheduling software, announces the immediate release of EssentialPIM Pro Network 2.0, the major release of its award-winning planner and personal information organizer. This major release provides powerful network capabilities.

The amounts of information received and processed by the average office worker are increasing every minute. More business offers, more elements to consider, more spamЧall this leads to an enormous amount of data to be analyzed every day.

How does an office worker keep everything in order and at the same time is not buried under administration problems and procedures? One of the products that can solve this problem is EssentialPIM Pro Network.

EssentialPIM Pro Network evolved from the popular, single user Personal Information Manager (PIM), which was designed using active involvement of users. The outcome is a flexible, powerful, and appealing PIM. Now, EseentialPIM hands all its power into the hands of network users.

It is straight forward, easy to use, but extremely powerful network-enabled office/home Personal Information Manager that unveils its features as you use it. "No-nonsense" has been the motto during the evolution of EssentialPIM Pro Network. The software works immediately after installation, no administrator needed!

EssentialPIM was designed with an understanding of small office needs and requirements. The software is powerful enough to be used across multiple access levels and smart enough to be administered by the average Windows user. Need to add more users? Want to share more schedules/contacts/notes/to do lists? Want to define who can read what? You can set that up with several mouse clicks.

EssentialPIM Pro Network does not require a hardware server either. A common Windows computer and local area network works fine, with no complex setup.

Having installed EssentialPIM Pro Network, users can even reach their data anywhere in the world, using an Internet connection and EssentialPIM Portable (U3 version available as well). EssentialPIM Portable can run straight from a flash drive or Notebook and connect to the office EPIM database, as if the user was in the office.

A large number of features have been included to make sure office users have what they needЧprivate/public events, multiple access levels, automatic backups, etc.

Please explore essentialpim.com for more information.

Availability
The trial version of EssentialPIM Pro Network 2.0 is available immediately from EPIMТs site. The product runs under Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT, 2003, XP, and Vista. Additional information on the product, as well as other software by EPIM, is available from www.essentialpim.com.

EssentialPIM Free is perfect for any home user who needs a personal information manager to plan daily activities, keep To Do tasks in shape, take notes, manage contacts, but doesn't want to buy an expensive PIM with bloatware features that will never be used. EssentialPIM Free can automatically import data from Outlook, TreePad, Google calendar or any other manager and store all data in a single place, where all information bits are interconnected.

The software lets you print any portion of data, save it to HTML, vCard, iCal, RTF, CSV, TXT or export it to MS Outlook. All data can be securely protected with 128-bit encryption. A portable version of EssentialPIM is available, also for U3 smart drives.

Version 2.0 includes several new features to enhance PIM-operating experience for users: new, open-source Firebird database engine and completely redesigned interface that enhances usability and leaves more screen estate for user's data.

"I run a busy secretarial service, I am also a Rotarian, I belong to a business networking organization and I'm an active member in my local Twinning Association and local Green Party," says Ashley Price, APA Secretarial, Lewes, Sussex, England. "So this gives you an idea of how busy I am. EssentialPIM keeps me organized, I know when my appointments are, where I am supposed to be, who I am meeting, what I need to do, and also have all my contacts in one place. A great, simple to use, but extremely powerful little program. Well-done to all those who design and program it."

EssentialPIM Pro and EssentialPIM Free 1.6 Released

28 September 2005

Turn your home PC into office. Make your office desktop feel home like. Both possible with EssentialPIM.

Linden, New Jersey - September 28, 2005 EPIM Ltd. today released the highly anticipated version of its personal information manager, EssentialPIM 1.6. The core components of the PIM were reinforced by data protection, attachment support, multi-user access, and on-the-go backup. Whether it is an attachment in EssentialPIM database, backup file or multiple copies on the net, personal data is securely protected with a password and an industry standard encryption. Editable categories and unlimited length of data fields have added to the functionality of the new version. These new features make EssentialPIM a perfect choice for SOHO users.

Different applications generate scores of documents and memos directed to one end. Without data integration there is always a chance of overlooking some important clues and dates. EssentialPIM Pro v1.6 helps link these documents to items on a user's agenda. The program's database creates a single point of reference for contacts, tasks, notes, and to do lists. It bonds together notes and documents under separate tasks with the view on their relative progress and deadlines. It also marks the priority of each item and shows hierarchical relation between notes and documents. The program's powerful search engine saves time and delivers requested data in a blink. By scheduling separate bits of work, marking their priority, and linking them together one can dramatically increase the overall work efficiency.

A great scope for customization complements the program's extensive functionality. Visual presentation of scheduled tasks features different color code and viewing modes. To Do list reflects the status of each item and its priority. These and many other features were suggested by users to better meet their daily needs. Here are some testimonials to illustrate users' view of the program:

"In the past I would have bits of paper lying around all over the place.EssentialPIM was so good I never even tried looking for any alternative.... All in all, I would be lost without it." Terry Rogers, Portsmouth, UK.

"I like EPIM for the following reasons: It's small yet powerful. It has almost all the functionality I want from this type of software. It's extremely intuitive and easy to use, yet flexible to meet the needs of many different users." John Wales, UK.

Network support provided by EssentialPIM can also increase joint productivity of a team. Professional version of the program allows simultaneous access to documents in shared folders, personal assignments and performance tracks. This makes EssentialPIM Pro an effective management tool for both personal and team schedules.

EssentialPIM is available in the Desktop and Portable versions. The Portable edition allows moving data onto a flash drive or other removable media with all its settings so that no trace of personal information can be found in the host system. This feature provides a great benefit for users of desktops who wish to keep tasks, appointments, notes, and contacts at hand all the time.

EssentialPIM v1.6 Features at a Glance

  • Core components: Contacts, Schedule, To Do, and Note Outliner

  • Data export and import with support for HTML, RTF, CSV, and TXT formats

Current version of EssentialPIM Pro is a public Beta. All active testers will be receiving the life long license for the Pro version. Beta version does not have any limitations.

  • Advanced To-Do. Hierarchical To-Do list. All to-dos can have sub to-do tasks.

  • Database sharing. Each database can be used simultaneously by several users, concurrent access is allowed.

  • Attachments. Users can now hold their files directly in EPIM database! You can either save links to the files, or files themselves! Each Note/Task/To-Do/Contact can have unlimited numbers of files attached/linked.

  • Backup. That's a robust backup solution, keeping adjustable number of copies of the database and made in adjustable periods, on the fly.

  • Fields in Contacts now have editable length. Adjust the database the way you want it to!

For those who for any reason may want to switch down to EPIM Free version, we will be providing a converter to get your Pro database down to free one.

EPim Ltd. Announces EZOutlookSync

13 January 2005

Dear users of EssentialPIM and visitors to our website- today we decided to announce our new product- EZOutlookSync. In a nutshell, this is an add-on product for MS Outlook (2000/2003), making synchronizations between several PST files possible and hassle- free.

A bit of background: current versions of MS Outlook do not allow to synchronize several offline storage files (*.PST). Some people use more than 1 computer, each having its own copy of MS Outlook. To keep data synchronized, you need to use MS Exchange server, which is not always possible. Now using *.PST files is much more convenient, now that you can synchronize between them.

What is the licensing policy for EZOutlookSync?
Beta versions are free and fully functional. Our testers will receive a life-time license for the program.
All others after evaluations will have to pay USD 39.95/copy.

It may seem goofy for the company who makes own PIM to develop an add-on product for somebody else's PIM tool. But we believe that those who, for some reason still have to use MS Outlook (e.g. corporate standards), do deserve their right for convenient work in favorite PIM.

Does this mean we are giving up on EssentialPIM?
In no way. It means we are extending our product line, without losing focus on EssentialPIM.

Those of our visitors, who still use MS Outlook without an Exchange server- please feel free to download a free beta version from www.ezoutlooksync.com!

Best wishes,
your,
EPim Team
