ClearContext Launches Two New Products to Manage Email Overload

I am very pleased to announce that we have officially released ClearContext v2!  I will write a longer post on v2 a little later, but wanted to share the press release below…


Information Management System Pro and free Inbox Manager Personal
Edition help Microsoft Outlook users efficiently cope with increasing
volumes of email by utilizing automated email prioritization,
organization, and email-driven workflow capabilities.


San Francisco, CA – March 22, 2006 —
ClearContext Corporation today announced the release of ClearContext
Information Management System Pro (IMS Pro), a Microsoft Outlook add-in
to help individuals efficiently manage email, tasks, and appointments
in a fully integrated fashion, and ClearContext Inbox Manager Personal
Edition, a free product to automatically prioritize and organize email.
Both products utilize patent-pending email and contact prioritization
algorithms to highlight a user’s most important email and provide
features to quickly organize and file related emails by project.


Pro includes additional functionality to create, process, and organize
not only emails, but also tasks and appointments. “As business users
face ever increasing email volumes, taking quick, effective action on
messages becomes vital,” said ClearContext CEO Deva Hazarika.
“ClearContext IMS Pro allows users to instantly identify critical email
and with a single click create action items linked to that email –
transforming Outlook into a powerful information management system.”


addition to instantly converting emails into tasks and appointments,
IMS Pro also allows users to delegate email to others or defer emails
so they disappear from the inbox and reappear at a later date. “Defer
is like a snooze button for email,” said Brad Meador, ClearContext’s VP
of Operations. “The combination of these features and automated email
prioritization allows busy users to very quickly perform ‘email triage’
on their inbox.” Outgoing message features include the ability to
generate reminders if a response is not received within a certain
timeframe and automatic filing of sent messages into project folders.


help users manage their action items, two powerful new dashboard views
have been integrated into Outlook. ActionView provides users with a
consolidated view of all pending action items (tasks, appointments,
deferred messages, and flagged messages) filtered by project, enabling
individuals to more efficiently manage and organize their workday.
RelatedView displays all related emails, tasks and appointments along
with a history of all activity within the email conversation, allowing
users to at a glance see when emails were sent or received and view all
action items generated from these messages.


Inbox Manager Personal Edition is available completely free of charge.
ClearContext Information Management System Pro is priced at $69.95 per
single-user license with a 30-day free trial available. Both products
can be downloaded at
