TimeBridge Helping More Than 100,000 Busy Professionals and 8,000 Businesses Simplify Scheduling(September 04, 2008)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/04/08 -- The TimeBridge Personal Scheduling Assistant continues its strong viral growth, eclipsing 100,000 users at more than 8,000 businesses who have finally found a way to solve their scheduling dilemmas and help share availability across time zones, calendars and companies. In a separate announcement today, TimeBridge also released its Apple iCal connector and mobile interface for iPhone, BlackBerry and other Internet capable phones. TimeBridge is the first scheduling application to directly connect with Apple iCal and now integrates with three of the top calendaring applications -- Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal.
"Since TimeBridge launched late last year, we have seen rapid user growth due to the necessity for, and absence of, a comprehensive scheduling application geared towards the needs of busy professionals," said Yori Nelken, founder and CEO of TimeBridge. "Reaching 100,000 users and 8,000 businesses so quickly is a great milestone for TimeBridge, and we expect to continue to see this accelerated growth as we release more productivity features and calendar integrations in the coming months."
In addition to integration with three top calendar applications and mobile support, TimeBridge's 100,000 users are also offered many productivity features to further simplify the scheduling process. Among other meeting services, organizers and attendees can include a free conference call number, connect via web conferencing, make a restaurant reservation and map their meeting location all from within the TimeBridge application. Outlook, Google and Apple iCal users can also share their availability with anyone with their custom personal availability link.
Michael J. Sonntag, a Los Angeles-based independent film producer, development executive, casting director, teacher and actor, says: "I'm a big fan of using TimeBridge for scheduling my work appointments. I love the fact that it takes most of the work out of trying to plan a meeting -- bouncing times back and forth, e-mailing, phoning -- TimeBridge just makes it simple. Plus, it has a very nice interface that's not only nice to look at, but it's also not too daunting for newbies when they get to the site. All in all -- it's a pretty great product. The syncing with Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Outlook is superb -- it makes scheduling fairly pain free -- which is saying a lot!"
TimeBridge works with any email application and meeting attendees need not sign up with TimeBridge to respond to meeting invites. To simplify your scheduling and claim your personal availability link, go to www.timebridge.com.
TimeBridge has created the first Personal Scheduling Assistant to give busy professionals a faster, more efficient way to schedule their time. TimeBridge's one-step scheduling is the most efficient way to schedule meetings with large groups or individuals across time zones, calendaring systems and companies. TimeBridge allows users to easily schedule meetings, share their availability with others, and connect directly with calendars including Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal. While online calendars help users track their time, TimeBridge facilitates the social, and often complex process of getting busy people together -- in person, on the phone or online. TimeBridge is backed by blue-chip venture capital firms Mayfield Fund and Norwest Venture Partners. For more information, go to www.timebridge.com.
