What if every online meeting you joined took five minutes to launch and get into? Doh! I attend at least 10 online meetings a week. If I was struggling to get into every meeting I attended I’d be wasting an hour a week – or the equivalent of a week each year, simply (or not so simply), getting into meetings.
Now, imagine you are the one who is scheduling all these meetings. What if you had to go into yet another platform besides your current email client or CRM to schedule and start all the meetings you host? You probably do that now. That time could easily add up to another week per year.
At ReadyTalk, we believe meetings should be easy to schedule and start, ultimately making you more efficient and productive. That’s why we recently launched our Connectivity Tools – to help you get that time back.
With plug-ins available for all the major communication platforms like Outlook, Lync, Google, as well as Salesforce, you no longer have to break your current workflow to schedule your meetings. It’s as simple as downloading the plug-in for your specific platform and setting up your default meeting details. Then send the invites out of your current email, instant message or CRM tool.
And, your participants can now access and enter a meeting so much faster. As you know, not all conferencing platforms are created equal. Sometimes you need to press numerous audio buttons, others require specific downloads to get online. At ReadyTalk, we started asked ourselves questions like, “What if you could join a meeting in one click?” or “What if the meeting called you?” From that came our latest features for accessing a meeting: ReadyTalk’s Desktop app, Call Me, the ReadyTalk Scheduler for Microsoft Outlook and the Web Meeting plug-in.
We invite our customers to visit our Connectivity Tools page to learn more about our plug-ins that will give you back some time. If you’re not a customer, but would like to learn more about how you can meet faster and more efficiently, join us for a live demo.
And feel free to let me know what you’re doing with your extra week a year (Bahamas anyone?).
