Chronos LC on Monday announced the release of
SOHO Organizer, a personal business productivity application suite for Mac OS X. It costs $99.
SOHO Organizer comprises four integrated applications: SOHO Contacts, a contact management tool; SOHO Calendars, a calendaring application that can be shared between multiple users; SOHO Notes, a note-taking application; and SOHO Print Essentials, which can be used to print labels and envelopes, letterhead and more.
SOHO Organizer is networkable, as well — it’s based on a client-server database, so contact information, calendars and notes can be shared over a network. Different members of the workgroup can be assigned different levels of access, and mobile users can take the information with them on the road then synchronize it once they’re back in the office.
Billed as the official successor to Chronos’ Personal Organizer and Group Organizer, the new product features an Aqua interface, support for Unicode, built-in spell checking, Service support and other features afforded applications that are written in Cocoa, Apple’s application development environment. Users of that previous release can upgrade to SOHO Organizer for $49.99 (users who purchased Personal Organizer and Group Organizer after May 1, 2005 can upgrade for free).
SOHO Organizer features synchronization with Address Book and iCal as well as iSync, so your content can be synced to iPods, Palm handsets, telephones and .Mac.
Chronos offers a 30-day trial version of SOHO Organizer. The software requires Mac OS X v10.4.3 or later and 130MB disk space.
In related news, Chronos has released each of the Organizer applications separately, as well. Visit the Web site for further details.
