TimeBridge Adds New Collaboration Tools to Fast Growing Online Scheduling Service

TimeBridge Groups Delivers New Levels of Enterprise Collaboration

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - TimeBridge today announced they will be adding several new collaboration tools to enhance the scheduling and meeting process, including a group scheduling feature being released today called TimeBridge Groups. This new feature enables work teams to share their availability with each other as a group to and make finding a time to meet and collaborate even easier.

When working on an ongoing project in a group, finding meeting times can slow the whole process down and inhibit progress. The addition of the TimeBridge Groups scheduling feature allows users to share their availability with a specific group of people or work team so they can easily see when everyone is free to meet. Similar to all of TimeBridge's scheduling tools, TimeBridge Groups works across companies and calendaring systems, enabling users to collaborate both inside and outside the firewall. With TimeBridge Groups, anyone in the group can see at a glance when everyone is available and propose meeting times accordingly, avoiding the blind guessing and extensive back and forth that would normally take place. Additionally the meeting organizer can add a free conference call number to bring the team together on the phone.

"The fragmentation of the workplace that exists today makes it harder for people to collaborate effectively and efficiently, and the annoyance of setting up meetings often eclipses their potential value," said Yori Nelken, CEO and founder of TimeBridge. "TimeBridge Groups is a natural extension of our product that enables work groups to get together more easily to discuss projects online, on the phone or in person whenever they want, undeterred by the hassle of scheduling."

"How easily can you set up group meetings?" asked TimeBridge user, Ahmet Alpdemir, in the title of a recent blog post on his blog, NorCal Consultant's Network. "In my case... only with one click! Yes, it is possible with TimeBridge... You can upload your contacts and share your calendar with those you want... If you are fed up of sending multiple messages back and forth to set up a call or a meeting, give TimeBridge a try."

TimeBridge's free scheduling software integrates directly with Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal, and is the most efficient way to schedule meetings with large groups or individuals across time zones, calendaring systems and companies. TimeBridge facilitates the entire meeting process from sharing availability by providing users with personal availability links, through negotiating the meeting time, to automated meeting preparation with The Daily Brief. More than 250,000 people and 12,000 businesses are using TimeBridge to facilitate the meeting process. Register for TimeBridge here.
