please get me the status report tomorrow”; or “Steve, the client wants
the project delayed for 3 days”.
Of course many emails are much, much more substantive than this, but
the “to do” emails are often filled with directives that we translate
to tasks on our Outlook (or other) to do lists.
Liaise is an awesome new tool,
that serves as an add-on to Outlook which intelligently reads your
email messages and picks out the action item, prioritization and time

Future editions are expect to connect with other email services/programs and include a hosted (online) version.

your email messages sent and received, Liaise intelligently does this
for you. At the end of the day, Liaise will have intelligently put

Technology is a tool to help you GROW your business. The challenge

that simple. If you are going around and using just the mere basics of
technology then you are NOT leveraging technology so it can be used as
a TOOL to grow your business. It’s that simple.
