Truly the Perfect Blend of Features for Individual or Company Information Management
Einstein is a Windows program that quickly and clearly facilitates the entry of tremendous amounts of information while providing the tools to find it just as easily the next day, month, year or decade. Ideas, goals, events, meetings, employee suggestions, dreams - it can be used as a diary or to keep track of website passwords and favorite sites - it's completely customizable. You are unlimited in the categories you create to manage your information. And each category can have an unlimited number of sub-categories. Custom versions of Einstein are available to customers who like Einstein but need some modifications. Standard programming rates apply.

I wrote Einstein for my personal use beginning in 1996 and have just improved it over the years into a robust program. Having tried dozens of Information Management Systems (PIMS), I found them to either be too cryptic, too rigid or too basic. Seeing PIMS attempt to integrate contact management into their systems in addition to information management seemed uncalled for. No one wants to maintain duplicate address books or calendar schedules. As a result Einstein integrates with Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office. The commands in Einstein follow the MS Office conventions closely. This along with a bright uncluttered user interface I believe leads to the perfect balance needed for a program of this type. Finally a free training video tutorial that is brief yet effective rounds out the Einstein Information Management System. The Free Personal Version will never expire and the only limit is no more than 50 Master Records can be added. Each one can have unlimited Notes-Comments that are up to 10 pages in length which includes the ability to include a hot link to any website or page, or any file or folder on your computer for fast access to that data. Integration with Microsoft Outlook allows you to create any new Outlook information from within Einstein, not having to get out of it to open Outlook. Quickly create a new Contact, new E-mail message, new Appointment/Meeting or New Note with the click of a button. My logic was that Outlook already is exceptional at handling this information, especially the new Outlook 2003 version. So Einstein allows you to focus on your critical information and allows Outlook to handle the details Outlook is good at. And never any adware, spyware or advertising. For companies with IT departments bogged down with "large" projects, you can accomplish information management for the many smaller projects your programmers just can't get to. Einstein is universal and is only limited by the imagination of its users. You are encouraged to share your success stories with Einstein - let us know how it is working for you. A forum will be setup in the near future to allow users to share the innovative ways they have used Einstein. Having developed software for multiple Fortune 500 and smaller companies beginning in 1988, I am not a company with 15 or 100 other programs. Einstein is my only program and I can respond very rapidly to requests for enhancements or any problems that might arise. Downloads for the most current version appear below, along with screen shots, examples of how to use Einstein and other information. The new Einstein Training Video will appear on this site in the very near future.
The demonstration version of Einstein is actually a full copy of the program, with no time limits, the only limit is that you can only put in 50 master information records. Some people won't even make it to 50, and if you are on a budget you can delete some older records when you get close to 50, to allow you room to add more. Understand the limit is 50 master information records, but each master record can have unlimited comments. So for example, one primary information record could be called Diary, and you could put a new entry in each day for the rest of your life and would still have 49 more primary records you could add, also with unlimited comments.
New Version 4 and Training Materials - version 4 is posted and ready to download. I'll be posting the Training Video any day now. I also am finishing up PowerPoint presentations for companies to to use to acquaint and train employees. There are 2, one for a group presentation and the other which is a self-training presentation which can remain available to employees for refreshers if needed. An Einstein Training Manual is being completed and a rough copy will be ready in the next few days in MS Word and Acrobat formats. The video will be available in Windows Media Player format initially (other formats later) and can be viewed online or downloaded and viewed locally. Harness the power of Einstein quickly and completely with the brief training video. For now if you move to any control or field in Einstein and hold your mouse over that item, most items have tool tips which pop up, short little messages explaining the control you are on. Plus on some pages you'll see question marks and clicking them will yield additional information about that section or form. I appreciate your patience.
Einstein: The heart of Einstein is a Quick-Add Wizard which steps you through submitting your information quickly into the system. To alleviate the possibility of missing the information or forgetting to record it, the wizard facilitates quick entry of the information. Because it is fast and has unlimited categories for both Information and Comment records, you can manage a lot of varied information very effectively.

Einstein Provides a central location for your Information needs — a few examples of what Einstein can do:
Research - say you are doing research on someone like Kurt Cobain. You visit a lot of websites among other things, maybe download some files. Create a new Information Record called Kurt Cobain, and then add as many comments as you want. Each comment can have a link to a web page where you can put a description, as much as a 10 page Word document can hold, plus you could put in a username and password if it is a forum, you can put a one-click hyperlink in to that opens the website. Or put a link in to the file which will open for you with one click. Einstein is a great research tool.
Favorite Website Management - Create links to all your favorite websites and actually find them a week or a month later. The Favorites/Bookmark feature in Internet Explorer offers no creative favorites management. Have links to each website, plus the password, username and any other details you need. Cut and paste key text passages from the website into the comment also. And locate the information later, quickly and easily. You can categorize each comment, creating your own categories. Create multiple Information Records for web sites and you could have Favorite Car Sites, Favorite Shopping Sites, Favorite Research Sites. And then each of those could have unlimited favorite links comments.
Passwords - Tired of trying to keep track of all of the Internet and other passwords we have in today's society can be quite a feat in this day and age. Insure you keep up with all passwords and locate the right one when you need it. You just create a new Information Record called Computer Passwords or Internet Passwords, or just Passwords, and each comment you add can be a descriptive comment that includes the password, a username, a one-click link to either a website or a file on your computer, and up to 10 pages of notes pertaining to that particular information. You can put in an unlimited number of comments, so there is no limit to how many passwords you could manage.
Diary/Key Events - keep track of all of your daily events and thoughts. Create a new Information Record called Diary and each comment can be a day from your life. Automatic date stamping of your entry insures the correct date is recorded and your thoughts are safe. Set a password to insure only you see the information in the system.
Inventions/Ideas: Designed from the ground up with Inventors and Idea people in mind, Einstein will insure the successful entry, modification and additions to your concept with effective management of all phases of development.
Corporate Business Environment: From Fortune 500 Companies to small businesses, Einstein can support up to 256 employees concurrently across your network. Massive amounts of varied information can be managed within Einstein with full export capabilities in 15 different formats. As your companies Virtual Suggestion Box, employees company wide can insert their thoughts and suggestions via the Einstein icon on their desktop. With keywords and intuitive search capabilities, ease of use and speed, your employees will quickly adapt to and interact with Einstein effectively. The Power Tutorial will explain the Wizard to employees in under 10 minutes. An idea can be floated with all users adding their comments. A number of reports and export options allow you to bring the information into Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and FrontPage in a variety of formats. Quick Links to Microsoft Outlook allow one to create a New Contact or New Appointment in Outlook without ever leaving Einstein or opening Outlook. Einstein itself carries a 2 gigabyte size limit. A Microsoft SQL 7 version of Einstein is available for those with larger amounts of data. Additionally, new Einstein skins or wrappers are in development specifically focused on certain tasks. For example, to use Einstein as an Employee Suggestion Box, the Suggestion Box skin will present the Einstein Quick Add Wizard will all verbiage on the form specifically worded for the entry of suggestions.
The possibilities are endless. Einstein can be effectively used by both individuals and corporations. Versions are available for both individuals, small businesses and Fortune 500 Companies.
