    Victoria, B.C. — Shift, the popular email client from Victoria-based Redbrick, has continued to experience huge growth since its 2.0 launch in November 2017. With applications and extensions like Slack, Asana, Trello, Evernote, Grammarly, Boomerang, LastPass, and more, Gmail users are able to access everything they need, right inside Shift.


    “Most of us are experiencing information overload on the web, every single day. Managing email, and all of our other productivity tools, with the distraction of the browser, can be a challenge. When we built Shift, our goal was to help eliminate those distractions, and create a clean, beautiful, and productive place for our customers to get work done,” said Nadia Tatlow, Manager of Marketing.


    With productivity top of mind, especially this time of year, the number of tools available is overwhelming, and Redbrick’s team is working quickly to support several hundred of them, all inside Shift, before the end of the year.


    Shift is still available as a free version, as well as Pro for $29.99 per year. The newest plan, Advanced, has a yearly fee of $99.99. All plans offer support for multi-account access; a clean, clutter-free desktop application; easy switching between Mail, Calendar, and Drive; native desktop notifications; and cross-platform support for Windows, Mac, and Linux.  


    For those interested in testing out Shift for free, they can access it here. VIATEC members can upgrade to Shift Advanced, with support for Applications, Extensions, Google Services + Cross-Account Unified Search (the official 'receipt finder') for an exclusive discount of 30% off. To do so, simply apply the coupon code Viatec30 at checkout.


    In addition to Shift, Redbrick prides itself on a respected portfolio of B2B offerings focused on user engagement and analytics technology.

    Redbrick was ranked 2nd fastest-growing Canadian software company in the 28th annual PROFIT 500, and 5th overall in 2016. The company prides itself on building powerful software products for engaged users, globally.
