Meeting Maker, Inc. Provides Solution for Consolidating Multiple Personal, Group and Public Event Calendars

WALTHAM, Mass.--(CCNMatthews - Sep 12, 2005) -

Enables Users to Manage Multiple Calendars by Integrating Meeting Maker's Meeting Maker Millennium and WebEvent View

Addressing the need to manage increasingly busy schedules, Meeting Maker, Inc., a leader in critical time and resource management software solutions, today announced that it has created a solution that enables customers to more easily view and manage multiple calendars and event schedules. This functionality is being made available through the integration of Meeting Maker's flagship products -- Meeting Maker Millennium, a personal and group scheduling software for organizations of all sizes; and WebEvent View, a Web-based tool providing event scheduling capabilities to academic institutions, businesses and other organizations.

This new integration capability now enables users to access published event calendars from WebEvent View and add them directly to their personal Millennium calendars. With one consolidated view for group and personal activities, users can compare selected public event schedules to the activities already on their calendar, view event details, and add specified events directly to their calendars as standard activities. This enables users to more effectively manage their schedules, save time and minimize confusion or missed events associated with trying to coordinate multiple calendars.

According to Eric Bassett, research director at Eduventures, "It is a significant challenge for academic institutions to effectively communicate all the events offered through different departments to students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Institutions are looking for ways to streamline the distribution of event information and increase awareness of activities without compromising constituents' personal calendars. Meeting Maker directly addresses this need through the integration of its Millennium personal calendaring solution with WebEvent View event calendars."

"Many people today are faced with the challenge of managing multiple calendars, from their office, school and home, as well as from mobile devices. It not only wastes time and reduces productivity, but it can also lead to missed events or overlapping activities," said John T. Anderson, president and CEO of Meeting Maker, Inc. "We integrated Meeting Maker Millennium and WebEvent to help customers consolidate their calendars and simplify the process of accessing event information from within their personal calendaring environment. Now all the relevant information they need is in one place - right at their fingertips."

The recently announced Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync - the industry's most advanced wireless calendaring and email solution - further enhances the value of the Meeting Maker Millennium/WebEvent View integration. Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync enables users to sync their personal Millennium calendar - including the events added using the integration event overlay - directly to a variety of mobile devices, thus ensuring that users have access to their updated calendar information at any time from anywhere.
