PIM (Personal Information Manager/Management)

PIM is a whole category of software functions that organize personal information. A typical PIM suite includes a scheduler for events, and address book for contacts, and to-do list. PIM can also include email, text notes, voice notes, and alarms / reminders.

Some phones allow PIM information to be electronically synchronized (synced) with a PC and/or web-based PIM service.
