Share Article

The quality-of-life software company based in Tampa, Florida, has launched several initiatives to broaden the base of users of the LightWize Owl, an automated personal organization system. Now, under a new initiative called "Fly the Owl for Free," MarkleyWorks is offering free copies to the first 25,000 requesters from the general public.

Our long-term vision is a world in which the Owl resides on every personal computer and being organized, productive, and effective is the norm rather than an exception.

MarkleyWorks LLC announced today that free copies of the LightWize Owl will be made available to anyone who submits a request through the company’s website for the next 60 days. Free copies will be limited to two per family, and a postage/handling charge of $8.95 will apply for each copy ordered.

The Owl is a Windows-based personal organization system. It harnesses the power of data base management but is presented in a simple framework of easy-to-use entry screens and pre-designed reports. The Owl features six interactive modules – contacts, events (and to do list), finance, inventory tracking, internet links, and tips (a personally-oriented solutions repository).

Users find they become more efficient, less stressed, more creative in analyzing situations and devising solutions, and better able to focus on important goals and objectives. They also learn how to track their finances and how to plan, schedule, and meet obligations effectively.

A Student Edition of the Owl is also available. This version has all the components of the original Owl, plus additional modules for tracking classes and assignments. It is designed to help students focus on academic goals and develop critical life skills, including how to organize for success and how to manage a budget.

“Like previous promotions,” said Technical Director Ross Markley, “this initiative is designed to get as many copies of the Owl as possible into mainstream America. We believe in this product and we have seen what a positive impact it can have on an individual’s productivity and creativity. And, in stark contrast to the electronic gadgets that ‘entertain with no gain,’ the Owl provides a life-long tool that will not lose its usefulness when the next generation of glitzy infotainment toys is released.”

Orders for the free software can be placed at This offer is open for 60 days; last day to place an order for a free copy will be October 30, 2011.

According to Dale Markley, Business Director of MarkleyWorks, “As we seek broader visibility for our products, we believe the best thing we can do is continue building the community of satisfied users of the Owl. Our long-term vision is a world in which the Owl resides on every personal computer and being organized, productive, and effective is the norm rather than an exception.”
