“The initial feedback has been fantastic. Many in the GTD community are very glad to finally have a BlackBerry-Outlook synchronized GTD software system like the Viira Outlook Suite”.

Despite the popularity of BlackBerry® smartphones and Microsoft® Outlook® among practitioners of the principles of David Allen's best-selling Getting Things Done® personal productivity system, up until now there had been no comprehensive and integrated software solution to enable unified access to a GTD system from both platforms. Fans of GTD have had to settle for partial and incomplete implementations that lack synchronization capabilities and often times require complex setup and even manual re-entry of tasks across platforms.

The Viira Outlook Suite leverages recent advances in wireless technology as well as Karta Mobile’s proprietary synchronization algorithm in order to provide the first unified GTD system for BlackBerry and Outlook. New entries and edits to the unified GTD system are almost instantly synchronized between Outlook and BlackBerry, making a wide range of productivity-enhancing habits possible, effortless and effective. For example, people can plan and organize their day in Outlook and check things off one by one on the go from their BlackBerry, as well as enter new to-dos, ideas and reminders from their BlackBerry in order to review them later from Outlook.

The Viira Outlook Suite provides built-in support for all key elements required by any GTD Outlook organization system, such as to-do lists, projects, contexts, next actions as well as an inbox. Designed to take advantage of RIM’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) and its interoperability capabilities with Microsoft Exchange, the Viira Outlook Suite works equally well with devices powered by the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS). It can even be deployed to BlackBerry smartphones without a data plan.

“The initial feedback has been fantastic. Many in the GTD community are very glad to finally have a BlackBerry-Outlook synchronized GTD software system like the Viira Outlook Suite”, said Chris Balavessov, CEO and Chief Developer at Karta Mobile Inc.
