EssentialPIM Pro is a really great program. Similar to Outlook in style and functioning, it's a clean, flexible tool that allows you to document, record and plan practically every element of your professional or personal day. You can get an overview of your schedule in EPIM Today, or examine and modify each particular area under the Schedule, To Do, Notes, Contacts, Mail and Trash categories. One of the great things about EssentialPIM Pro is that it is so intuitive. Want to add a new sub-note? Just click on sub-note and the blank note will appear. Want to email a colleague? Double-click their email address and a new email pops up.

It's not just ease-of-use that makes EssentialPIM Pro such a delight. It has loads of useful functions that help make it one of the best personal information managers around. You can import and export information, sync with a variety of programs and devices, protect your information with a password, automatically create back-ups and manage your database. Add this to the fact that EssentialPIM Pro is fully customizable, comes in a wide range of languages and has rich-text editing, and I think you'll agree that EssentialPIM is a very impressive piece of software.

EssentialPIM Pro has to be one of the best PIMs out there.
