Claris Organizer was personal information management (PIM) application for the classic Mac OS.

Apple had formed a software subsidiary, named Claris, to develop and market application software. Initially Claris sold MacWrite, MacPaint, and MacDraw, for the Macintosh, and AppleWorks, for the Apple II. The original plan was that Claris would become completely independent from Apple someday, and go public. But that never happened.

Claris acquired Organizer from Trio Development and sold it during the 1990s. Trio Development was founded by James Harker, Jack Welde and Joseph Ansanelli, Seth Odam joined them later. The software was sold to Palm when Claris was broken up, and was used as the basis for the Palm Desktop for Mac.

Claris Organizer integrated calendar, tasks, contacts, and notes in one compact application.
