As I’ve written previously, Liaise is intended for heavy email users who collaborate with many different people both inside and outside their organization. The program itself is Outlook-based, but the people who Liaise users collaborate with do not need to be using the same email client.
Liaise automatically captures, organizes and prioritizes action items as one types messages in Outlook. To-dos and tasks are then made available in the Liaise Manager dashboard. Action items can be viewed by initiative, owner, due date or priority. Project information can be organized into reports, made available for export and printing. Action item due dates may be displayed in the Outlook calendar.
Liaise is available for $50 per user per year, with a 30-day free trial period. The developers are offering a free one-year license to 100 WWD readers at this link.
