SummaryHelsinki, Finland, April 26, 2013 – Meetin.gs, a Finland-based startup that helps professionals efficiently arrange, conduct and follow-up on meetings, introduces a new mobile-centric offering to simplify meeting organization. The relaunched service gathers scattered information around meetings into one view and is integrated with some of the most popular business tools and services.
Based on feedback from Meetin.gs steadily-growing 22,000-strong userbase, the relaunched product puts a stronger focus on the mobile worker. Relaunched Meetin.gs includes:
- iPhone and Android application to access meeting information on the go. Users can easily see meeting time, location, participants and view any materials attached to the meeting and even join a Skype call. Application is available for download in the Apple App Store and Android play.
- Meeting Timeline view makes it easy to browse past and upcoming meetings and meeting-related tasks.
- Meet Me pages enable users to create and publish personalized calendar pages to make it easier to schedule meeting time. The individually branded page automatically blocks out occupied time slots based on the user’s calendar and allows to pre-define meetings’ location, duration and preferred transit times between meetings.
- Browser extension for Chrome adds a Schedule Meeting button to some of the top business tools and services: LinkedIn, Google Calendar, Gmail, Highrise, with more to be added later. The button enables to instantly schedule a meeting with all the relevant information extracted from the third party services.
With the renewed offering, Meetin.gs is a truly unified meeting communication solution that acts as the central stage from which to quickly set up and connect participants before, during and after the meeting. The service sends automated reminders and notifications and is integrated with live communication tools such as Skype to facilitate online meetings. Follow-up meetings can be organized with a single click.
“Meetings in the business world notoriously tend to be time-sinks”, comments Teemu Arina, Meetin.gs founder and CEO. “We want to help professionals to cut down on administrative tasks around meetings while keeping everything necessary easily available from any device”.
