Tungle Unveils Tungle.me-The First Click-To-Meet Technology Now Available Through Facebook, Personal Blogs, and MoreTungle from any webpage, blog, Facebook profile or email; Enables anyone to easily schedule meetings without downloads or registration. (June 01, 2009)
MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/01/09 -- Editors note: Two photos and one video are included with this press release on Marketwire's website.
Tungle, the calendar accelerator, today introduced Tungle.me, the first click-to-meet technology. Similar to click-to-call services that put voice calls a "click away," Tungle.me's click-to-meet technology now makes scheduling a meeting just as easy. Tungle.me gives users a personalized URL where contacts can see a user's free/busy calendar and quickly schedule a meeting by proposing multiple meeting times without ever having to sign up to Tungle. When the meeting is booked, everyone gets a meeting confirmation and their calendars are automatically updated. The personalized Tungle.me URL can easily be sent to anyone via email, IM, Twitter and other networking and communication outlets.
In addition, Facebook and web users can now enhance their existing online profiles by adding the Facebook or web Tungle.me widgets. Released today, these widgets display a real-time view of each user's availability and a quick link to their personal Tungle.me URL. The Tungle.me Facebook widget gives an "at-a-glance" view of the availability of all friends that have the Tungle.me Facebook app installed, making it easy for users to connect with their network
"Tungle addresses a significant cause of information overload by eliminating the many unnecessary e-mails that are part of setting up a single meeting," said Jonathan Spira, chief analyst at Basex, a knowledge economy research firm and author of Managing the Knowledge Workforce. "As a result, services such as Tungle.me - in part because they don't require a change in behavior - have the potential to increase overall enterprise productivity."
Tungle, which recently launched its flagship service, Tungle Accelerate, extends the life of existing e-calendar and groupware solutions. It allows people to share calendars across companies and platforms, easily schedule meetings with individuals or groups inside or outside their company, propose multiple meeting times in invitations and much more. It intelligently and automatically adjusts for time zones and prevents double-bookings. The result is hours saved in getting meetings booked. It currently syncs with Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Entourage for Mac. Tungle is also working with IBM to accelerate Lotus Notes.
Pricing and Availability
Tungle.me is a free service. Go to http://tungle.me to get your personalized Tungle.me URL today. The Tungle.me Facebook widget is available in the Facebook application directory or by going directly to http://apps.facebook.com/tungleme.
Tungle, the maker of the first web-based calendar accelerator, gives your calendar the flexibility and accessibility it's lacking today. Working hand-in-hand with traditional e-calendars, it allows professionals to be connected, productive, mobile and in control through cross-platform and cross-company sharing and scheduling capabilities. Tungle currently integrates with Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Entourage for Mac.
Founded in 2006, the Montreal based company is venture-backed by investors Commonwealth Capital Ventures, JLA Ventures, and Desjardins Venture Capital.
