Claritude Software Combats Email Overload with SpeedFiler for Outlook

24 January 2006

Tel-Aviv, Israel (PRWeb) January 24, 2006 -- Claritude Software has released SpeedFiler™ 1.0, a productivity enhancing add-in for Microsoft Outlook, that is designed to help busy people cope with email overload. SpeedFiler does this by using patent pending technology to make it quick and easy to organize and file incoming and outgoing email messages, without forcing users to change the way they work.

"An ever-increasing number of people are suffering from email overload," said Itzy Sabo, Claritude Software's founder. "The organizing capabilities provided by email software such as Microsoft Outlook have not changed significantly since the 1990's. Innovation is needed in order to help us cope with the sharp increase in email volume we have experienced in recent years."

Many Microsoft Outlook users find that its message filing features are not practical for use with tens or hundreds of folders. In addition, Microsoft Outlook saves outgoing messages in a catch-all Sent Items folder, rather than making it easy to file them in more suitable folders. Seamlessly integrating with Outlook, SpeedFiler improves the way these features are presented to the user, allowing both incoming and outgoing email to be filed quickly and intuitively.

In his bestseller "Getting Things Done", productivity expert David Allen says, "The first time you pick something up from your in-basket, decide what to do about it and where it goes. Never put it back in 'in'." SpeedFiler encourages this habit by making it much easier to file messages where they belong, reducing the temptation to let them drop back into the inbox.

SpeedFiler's beta testing phase encompassed a diverse group, including managers, engineers, CEO's, CFO's, lawyers and accountants. Malcolm Isaacs, a software team leader at a leading technology company, was one of the first to take the plunge, and his comments typify many users' experiences. "I was dreading the initial clean-up of my inbox," he said, "but SpeedFiler made that almost pleasurable, in no small measure due to the totally intuitive File In Folder feature. SpeedFiler helps me organize my emails in real-time without having to think about it."

Key Features of SpeedFiler:

SpeedFiler's streamlined File In Folder and Go To Folder windows are much faster than those provided by Outlook. As you type the name of a folder, only the matching folders are displayed, irrespective of where they may be in the tree. This significantly shortens the time taken to file a message or navigate to a folder, and minimizes the effort involved.

SpeedFiler also makes it easy to file outgoing messages as you send them. When you are composing a message, SpeedFiler makes it easy to predetermine the folder in which it will be filed after sending. This ensures that outgoing correspondence related to a particular issue is kept in the same folder as the incoming messages, and not in the catch-all Sent Items folder.


SpeedFiler costs $19.95 per copy. Volume licensing is available. A 30-day evaluation version of SpeedFiler is available for download at
