Slice Planner

The most significant achievement of the Slice Planner team is creating paper notebooks connected to digital devices like computer or smartphone.

The key to the success of this project was the fact that many people want to actually see their day plan distinctly without scrutinizing in pages.

Moreover, with the Slice Planner planning system you can easily transfer your events to Google, Apple or Outlook calendars.

So it has now become efficient to stay on the flow throughout the day without the planner itself. I also can't but admit that the minimalistic style of this book catches the eye in an instant.
