Dallas, TX, October 9, 2006–PeopleCube, the leader in on-demand Human Process Management (HPM) solutions, and Notify Technology Corporation, a leading provider of enterprise mobility solutions, today announced at EDUCAUSE 2006 they have formed a strategic partnership to develop and market NotifyLink for Meeting Maker. This new solution enables users of the popular Meeting Maker calendar software to increase their productivity by providing access to their calendars, email, task lists and contact lists from any Blackberry, Treo or Windows Mobile wireless device.
“We are very excited about our newly-formed partnership with Notify Technology, as it will expand mobile calendar access for our Meeting Maker customers,” said Ann Hamann, vice president of marketing at PeopleCube. “Meeting Maker has been a leading group calendaring solution for over 15 years among small to large enterprises as well as schools and universities. During that time, we have built a reputation of meeting customer needs through innovative product releases and partnerships. In todays working environment, the ability to access email and calendars remotely can be a huge competitive advantage. Our partnership with Notify Technology and the NotifyLink for Meeting Maker solution facilitates that advantage by providing Meeting Maker calendar users with the ability to access and manage their calendar and email from their Blackberry or other mobile device.”
“We are delighted to be partnered with PeopleCube in an effort to provide secure, wireless synchronization for their Meeting Maker calendar users,” said Paul DePond, President of Notify Technology Corporation. “There is significant pent-up demand for BlackBerry handheld device support from many Meeting Maker customers. Now, these customers will be able to use the latest popular BlackBerry, Treo, and Windows Mobile handheld devices to address their mobile calendaring and communication needs.”
NotifyLink for Meeting Maker allows Meeting Maker users to access their calendars remotely using their Blackberry, Treo, or Windows Mobile device via a wireless or cradle synch. Users can also use NotifyLink for Meeting Maker to view and modify existing meeting proposals; schedule new meetings; send invitations to meeting attendees; accept or decline meeting invitations; and more – all from their handheld unit – helping to sustain productivity.
NotifyLink for Meeting Maker is compatible with Microsoft Outlook, making it easy for Outlook and Meeting Maker calendar users to collaborate. For example, when someone schedules a meeting from their Blackberry, Meeting Maker calendar users will receive the meeting proposal in their calendar while Outlook calendar users would receive an email invitation as they normally would. Conversely, if an Outlook user changes or cancels a meeting, the NotifyLink for Meeting Maker user would see this change in their Meeting Maker calendar.
Other capabilities of NotifyLink for Meeting Maker include the ability to create banners (all-day events in Outlook), receive automated reminders of upcoming activities, add comments to an existing meeting proposal, create and manage tasks/to-dos, and manage contacts (address book).
NotifyLink for Meeting Maker will be available exclusively by Notify Technology in November, 2006. For ordering or pricing information, visit www.notifycorp.com or send inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org.
