The second upgrade in 12 months, FranklinCovey TabletPlanner 3.0 provides mobile information workers with a productivity and planning tool that integrates with Microsoft Office Outlook 2003.
TabletPlanner runs on any Windows XP-based computer (including the Tablet PC); adds PowerNotes™, an updated and comprehensive note-taking application supporting digital ink or text via keyboard entry, and proprietary FranklinCovey productivity and planning solutions, including support for Mission/Values, Goals, and Weekly Compass.
“Agilix continues to innovate quickly and has worked closely with FranklinCovey to provide a solution that includes the core productivity and planning methodology taught in our training workshops, including FOCUS: Achieving Your Highest Priorities,” says Jeff Anderson, Vice President of Technology Products at FranklinCovey.

This is an excellent example of a ‘pen-perfect’ application which helps customers realize the potential of the Tablet PC.”
