Reminders by Instant Messanger

SmarterChild is an interactive chat bot that among other things can provide timed reminder prompts for events or to-do items via Instant Messaging.

Try this: add the screen name SmarterChild to your IM buddy list. Message SmarterChild the word “reminder.” (If this is your first time, answer a couple of questions first about your time zone and age.) Enter “lunch with Special Friend” and set your reminder for 12:45. You’ll get an IM from SmarterChild right on time.
Instant Messaging is a valuable and underutilized tool in the workplace. If you aren't using it why not experiment with it. You just may find a new way to serve your customers with better communication.

AIM is no longer a tool used by high school kids to see what is happening for the weekend; it is becoming more practical in the work place. Using AIM is a lot less tedious than using e-mail and can be customized in design with icons.

Now it can be used by executives who want to keep a conversation going without a phone to their ear. AIM is kind of like a walkie talkie conversation held on the computer. Using this reminder tool helps alot and hopefully more options like this will direct even more attention to online conversation via AIM.
