yaM Selected to Present at Under the Radar: Consumerization of the Enterprise

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - yaM, developer of cloud-based tools designed to make meetings more efficient and productive, today announced that it has been selected to present at this week's Under the Radar Conference: Consumerization of the Enterprise.

This event will take place Thursday, April 28 at the Microsoft Conference Center in Mountain View, CA. Under the Radar features 32 of the hottest emerging startups whose disruptive technologies are poised to change the landscape in collaboration, publishing and communication.

yaM Labs founder and CEO Anatoly Gaverdovskiy will present during the "Collaboration" segment between 3:45 p.m. PT and 5 p.m. PT. Gaverdovskiy previously founded InvisibleCRM, which was the 2007 Under the Radar Audience Choice Winner. He also conducted a QA with the Under the Radar blog leading up to this year's show.

"I am thrilled to be back at Under the Radar," said Anatoly Gaverdovskiy, CEO and founder of yaM Labs. "Each year they bring together a stellar collection of startups who will have a big impact on the way people work. It's great for the visibility of the startups who participate."

The idea of yaM is very simple: to improve meetings by replacing hard copy tools of the past with virtual and cloud based tools. yaM, which stands for Yet Another Meeting, is a collaborative, real-time application designed to improve the efficiency of meetings by providing tools to enhance brainstorming, analyze priorities, create pro/con lists, offer real-time voting on ideas, and employ visual aids via an intuitive online whiteboard.

yaM is initially web-based, but over the next few months will be integrating with the iPad and other tablets, the Google App marketplace, Yammer, and Jive Networks.

Some features in yaM include:

  • Agenda/Notes -- Keep your meeting on track with a shared agenda and real-time, collaborative note taking.
  • Meeting Minutes -- Create an easily accessible official record of each meeting's activities and get it approved right on the meeting.
  • Brainstorming -- Visually run brainstorming sessions to collect and rate ideas from your team.
  • Priorities Analysis-- Graphically slot your projects based on their importance and urgency to better manage prioritization.
  • SWOT Analysis -- Quickly generate a collaborative SWOT chart for any item on your agenda.
  • Pro/Con -- Easily jot down a collaborative list of pros and cons for any agenda item.
