Share Article

The Viira Outlook suite is the first software product to combine the power a BlackBerry smartphone with Microsoft Outlook in order to provide an accessible-from-anywhere personal productivity solution to help people stay organized and apply the principles of David Allen's Getting Things Done. Version 1.1 introduces search, touchscreen navigation as well as the ability to organize email messages to the suite's portable GTD system.

The Viira Outlook Suite is the first software solution to bring together the power of a BlackBerry® smartphone and Microsoft® Outlook® into a personal productivity suite that helps people stay organized and get things done from anywhere. Based on the principles of David Allen’s bestselling Getting Things Done®, the Viira Outlook Suite leverages the power and reliability of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to provide near-instant synchronization of projects, to-dos, priorities and commitments between a BlackBerry smartphone and MS Outlook. Non-BES synchronization is also supported.

The Viira Outlook Suite comes with a BlackBerry app and an Outlook plugin that stay in sync and provide support for all key aspects of a GTD-based organizational system both on the go and from a desktop PC. Version 1.1 adds email organization, quick search and quick launch capabilities as well as touchscreen navigation support for owners of the popular BlackBerry Torch and BlackBerry Storm models. The Viira Outlook Suite comes with a 14-day free trial and is supported on all modern BlackBerry devices as well as on Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010.

"Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity" is a best-selling time management book by David Allen. The principles of the book have received worldwide media attention and have been embraced by millions of professionals, entrepreneurs and executives worldwide. BlackBerry smartphones and Microsoft Outlook are the productivity platforms of choice for many fans of Getting Things Done and the Viira Outlook Suite comes to the rescue of many who have previously been unable to leverage the full power of GTD with Outlook because of the lack of BlackBerry synchronization.

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) is a unique and differentiating component of the BlackBerry platform that enables individuals and enterprises of all sizes to achieve high level of application synchronization and IT data control. The Viira Outlook Suite leverages the unique synchronization capabilities offered by BES to provide a seamless synchronized experience with updates to the underlying GTD system propagated near-instantaneously between a BlackBerry smartphone and Microsoft Outlook. Owners of a BIS-powered or a pay-as-you-go BlackBerry smartphone can also sync via USB.
